I first became aware of Traudl Junge through the TV series "The World at War" during the 1970s. She spoke of her time with Hitler in the Fuehrerbunker in Berlin during the final days of the War. What she said in those interviews conveyed to me a heightened atmosphere that was surreal and veering on ghoulishness.
Several years later, I had the chance to see the German film, "The Bunker", which brought Frau Junge back to mind. So, when I learned that she had written a book about her time as one of Hitler's secretaries, I bought it and found it an interesting book. For anyone with an interest in the history of life in Germany during the Third Reich, this is the book to read.
