In 2009, three US professors with access to Adolf Hitler’s alleged remains startled the world with scientific DNA proof that the skull and bones that Russia had claimed since the end of World War II were Hitler’s actually belonged to a middle-aged woman whose identity remains unknown.
This announcement has rekindled interest in the claim made by Joseph Stalin, maintained to the end of his life, that Hitler got away. The truth is that no one saw Hitler and Eva Braun die in the bunker in Berlin on April 30, 1945. No photographs were taken to document claims Hitler and Evan Braun committed suicide. Hitler’s body was never recovered. No definitive physical evidence exists proving Hitler died in the bunker in Berlin.
Dr. Jerome Corsi explores the historical possibility that Hitler escaped Nazi Germany at the end of World War II. FBI and CIA records maintained at the National Archives indicate that the US government took seriously reports at the end of World War II that Hitler had escaped to Argentina. More recent evidence suggests Hitler may have fled to Indonesia, where he married and worked at a hospital in Sumbawa.
Even the chief of the US trial counsel at Nuremburg, Thomas J. Dodd, was quoted as saying, No one for sure can say Adolf Hitler is dead.”Putting massive amounts of evidence and research under a critical eye, Dr. Corsi shows that perhaps modern history’s most tantalizing question has yet to be definitively answered: Did Hitler escaped Nazi Germany at the end of World War II to plot revenge and to plan the rise of the Fourth Reich?

I thought this was the most preposterous thing I have ever heard of in the public discourse.
Now, it turns out the only "proof" (meaning something absolute) about Hitler's body being taken to Russia after the war is false: the body was determined by *American* forensic experts, in an investigation conducted *in* America, to be that of a woman less than 40 years old.
So Hitler did not die in the bunker.
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
All that Corsi manages to do is to throw more doubt on historical accounts. He offers little interesting data. He discredits early historians with already known facts that are easily to find on the Internet. The only redeeming quality of the work is that he brings these (possible) fact-conjectoids together in his book. He offer conjectures supporting his hypothesis in which the definition of the word fact must be used loosely. I'd suggest you pass.
The idea that Hitler really did get out of Berlin at almost the last day and supposedly fooled his immediate staff with a double!
Description of his supposed escape from Berlin in the nick of time!
Hitler Got Away!
Some very compelling arguments for the survival of Hitler were made in this book (by evidence or lack of evidence). Conventional wisdom like this (i.e. Hitler died by suicide in the bunker) is often proved false as time goes by, and this may be another case of that. Although several key situations do not have a source listed, it is still interesting enough to encourage me to get another book on the subject!
If the book was based on well researched facts, reason and logic, it might have been better. Wish I could get my money back
Danny Campbell did a fine job
