An incisive new book by Luke Daly-Groves has come to the aid of those determined to tell the truth with a brilliant demolition of the conspiracists. * The Mail on Sunday *
Luke Daly-Groves offers a well-written, comprehensive and very convincing case against the idea Hitler may have survived death in 1945. -- Professor Frank McDonough, Professor of International History, Liverpool John Moores University, author of 'The Gestapo: The Myth and Reality of Hitler's Secret Police'
Not only timely and important, but also a highly readable account that demolishes the junk history surrounding Hitler's death with formidable and forensic research. -- Guy Walters, author of 'Hunting Evil'
... a brilliant analysis of the final hours of the Fuhrer, a factual account that reads as extraordinary as a fable, addressing the many theories and conspiracies that have arisen over a half-century of speculation. It searches out all the ghosts. -- Alexander Theroux
In a fascinating analysis seasoned with wry humour, Luke Daly-Groves applies scholarly rigour and a formidable array of fresh evidence to a topic all too often mired in sensationalism and fantasy. -- Dr Jonathan Colman, Senior Lecturer in International History, University of Central Lancashire.
