At Hitlers Side
Nicolaus von Below was a 29-year-old pilot when Goering selected him for the position of Hitler’s Luftwaffe adjutant. He was with Hitler at every stage as the Second World War unfolded.
This is a first hand account describing life in Hitler’s inner circle. Von Below tells of Hitler’s responses to momentous events as well as military decisions and policy-making at Fuhrer Headquarters. His observations provides fascinating insight into how Hitler planned the invasions of Poland and Russia, what he thought of Britain and America, why he placed his faith in the V-1 and V-2 projects, how others dealt with him, and much more.
Von Below was present at the assassination attempt in July 1944, and records the effect on Hitler and his followers. He was the last of Hitler’s close military entourage to emerge from the bunker alive.
