DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOKS OF THE YEAR and BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE BOOK CLUB title

'I want to be a beautiful corpse, I will take poison' Eva Braun, 1945

Eva Braun and Adolf Hitler were together for fourteen years, a relationship that ended only with their marriage and double suicide in Berlin.

So who was Eva Braun? Heike Goertemaker's highly praised book is the first to take Braun's role in the Nazi hierarchy seriously. It uses her to throw fascinating light on a regime that prided itself on its harsh, coherent and unsentimental ideology, but which was in practice a chaos of competing individuals fighting for space around the overwhelmingly dominant figure of Hitler.

'Finally gives Braun her place in the dark history of the Third Reich' Wall Street Journal

MEDIA REVIEWS
The first scientifically researched biography to correct the image of the dumb blonde at the side of the mass murderer * Der Spiegel *
An utterly compelling portrayal of the weird hidden life of the dictator ... who, like some black star, destroyed all those he touched. Eva was only one of millions of his victims - but a willing one * Sunday Telegraph *
Easily the best biography of Eva Braun so far written * Daily Beast *
Fascinating ... overturns the established view of her as an apolitical bystander -- Nicholas Shakespeare * Daily Telegraph Books of the Year *
Braun emerges as bright but vapid, energetic but soulless. As thorough and clear a look of a monster's lover as we are likely to get * Booklist *
Having painstakingly reviewed the archives for references to Eva Braun's relationship with Hitler, Goertemaker presents a portrait of an engaged and engaging young woman, fervently supportive of National Socialism and one of the few members of Hitler's inner circle to never lose his trust or fall out of affection * Publishers Weekly *
