Eva Braun is one of history's most famous nonentities. She has been dismissed as a racist, feather-headed shop girl, and yet six decades after her death her name is still instantly recognizable. She left her convent school at the age of seventeen and met Hitler a few months later. She became his mistress before she was twenty. How did unsophisticated little Fräulein Braun, 23 years his junior, hold the most powerful man in Europe in an exclusive relationship that lasted from 1932 until their joint suicide? Were they really lovers, and what were the background influences and psychological tensions of the middle-class Catholic girl from Munich who shared his intimate life? How can her ordinariness and apparent decency be reconciled with an unshakeable loyalty to the monster she loved?--From publisher description.

I read extensively about World War II, but had never read a book devoted exclusively to Eva Braun Hitler. I learned a great deal about Eva, but there was a lot of repetition, i.e. the book could have stood some editing and I found the author's stories about her own family in Germany to be unnecessary. This personal information revealed next to nothing of any significance and seemed to be purely self-serving. It diminished the author's credibility with me. 500 pages was way more than I needed to know about Ms. Braun. Cannot recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby

A door stopper of a biography that flows like a novel. Lambert skillfully and sympathetically shows the intriguing relationship between Hitler and Eva Braun. Fair minded, well researched and utterly fascinating. Did you know that Eva never joined the Nazi party?
A must-read.
