From the back of the book: "For fifty years the Iron Curtain and the Cold War prevented the truth from being told about one of the most enduring mysteries of the twentieth century: how exactly, Adolf Hitler died on April 30 1945, and what happened to his remains.

Ada Petrova and Peter Watson provide the answers to these two questions. Given access to the Russians' hitherto unseen Hitler Archive--File I-G-23, the so-called Operation Myth File--they reveal not only the truth about what went on in Berlin in May 1945 after the Russions captured the bunker in which Hitler, Eva Braun, and their entourage spent their last days, but also why the Soviet regime felt that the details of the Fuhrer's death had to be suppressed.

Also included are unpublished interrogations that the Russians conducted of those close to Hitler; new forensic evidence from secret autopsies; photographs from Hitler's private album; and, most senstionally, photos of fragments of his skull that the Russians have had in their possession since 1945."
