With Hitler And Mussolini: Memoirs Of A Nazi Interpreter
- World War II, Biographies & Memoirs
Up close with history's greatest monsters
Eugen Dollmann arrived in Rome intending to write a history of the Catholic Church and instead joined the Nazi Party as a high-level interpreter. Dollmann attended the Munich Conference, witnessed meetings between Hitler and Mussolini, interpreted for Himmler, and played a role in the surrender of the German Army in Italy.
Dollmann's memoir is full of piquant anecdotes, from Heydrich's visit to a brothel to Hitler's dread and annoyance at being piloted into his newly conquered Ukraine by Mussolini. Throughout, he makes no attempt to exonerate his association with the Nazis.
With Hitler and Mussolini is a fascinating remembrance filled with political intrigue and insights into the key players in the German and Italian Fascist hierarchy.
Includes a new Foreword by HBC Review Board Member Gerhard L. Weinberg
