    The Last Days of Hitler by Hugh Trevor-Roper

Late in 1945, Trevor-Roper was appointed by British Intelligence in Germany to investigate conflicting evidence surrounding Hitler's final days and to produce a definitive report on his death. The author, who had access to American counterintelligence files and to German prisoners, focuses on the last ten days of Hitler's life, April 20-29, 1945, in the underground bunker in Berlin--a bizarre and gripping episode punctuated by power play and competition among Hitler's potential successors.
