Angela Lambert

The Lost Life of Eva Braun
  • The Lost Life of Eva Braun

  • How did a 19 year-old, middle-class, Catholic girl from Munich become Hitler's mistress and what kept him faithful until the end of their lives? Was her appeal sexual, domestic, political -- or did he really love her?

    This biography of Eva Braun is the first in English for 40 years. Angela Lambert has dug deep into Eva's background and brought into sharp focus a fascinating and unexpected relationship, hitherto neglected by male historians.

    There are more than 700 biographies of Hitler, yet this is the first thorough study of Eva Braun, his secret mistress. Using never before seen family papers and interviews with her surviving cousin, this book will cause a considerable stir.

    Illustrated throughout with little-known black and white photographs of life at the Berghof, it sheds new light on the man, the woman and the past.

Angela Lambert was born in 1940 and educated at boarding school in Sussex and then at St Hilda's College, Oxford where she read PPE. She worked for a cabinet minister before becoming a journalist in 1969. She has been a television reporter with ITN and Thames Television, and joined the newly formed Independent in 1988. She now writes for the Sunday Telegraph. Angela Lambert has three grown-up children and six grandchildren; she lives with her partner, Tony Price, in London and France. She is the author of six previous novels including A Rather English Marriage, which has been made into an award-winning film starring Tom Courtenay , Joanna Lumley and Albert Finney.
