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 is a writer whose previous publications include The Constant Mistress, Love Amongst the Single Classes, A Rather English Marriage, Unquiet Souls: Indian Summer of the British Aristocracy, Golden Lads and Girls and The Property of Rain. She also writes for newspapers and magazines, including the Daily Telegraph and the Independent.
