Publisher's Summary

By early 1945 the destruction of the German Nazi state seems certain. The Allied forces, led by American generals George S. Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower, are gaining control of Europe, leaving German leaders scrambling. Facing defeat, Adolf Hitler flees to a secret bunker with his new wife, Eva Braun, and his beloved dog, Blondi. It is there that all three would meet their ends, thus ending the Third Reich and one of the darkest chapters of history.

Hitler's Last Days is a gripping account of the death of one of the most reviled villains of the 20th century - a man whose regime of murder and terror haunts the world even today. Adapted from Bill O'Reilly's historical thriller Killing Patton, this audiobook will have young listeners - and grown-ups, too - hooked on history.

2/3 end of WW2 1/3 Demise of Hitler~4 STAR

PLOT: more history of the "last days" of World War 2~ and less about Adolph Hitler.

I expected the DEMISE of Adolph Hitler and his last days in the bunker. That is not what I got. This starts with Wolfe Schanze~ the ultra secret hideout/ Hitler HQ in eastern Poland. We hear some excellent details of Hitler's life there and why he spent more time there even the Bomb Attempt by Stauffenberg. How his body and mind deteriorate from idiopathic Parkinson and his addictions fed by Dr. Morelle including cocaine eye drops and "methamphetamine injections" to keep him up and moving. Then it moves to an excellent detailed account of the "Battle of the Bulge" and Patton and Monty. this is interesting but again not "relevant" to Hitler's last days. The last few hours of Hitler including Ava Braun and last of the few die hard Nazis who stayed with Hitler. This is very FACINATING but WE wanted more Hitler and less historical battles. Worth the wait to here "Hitler's Will" dictated in the final hours in the bunker~ hidden by an aid of Bohrmann in a well. Over all 4 STARS but the narrator is good but mispronounced several names. BILL you need to "READ and narrate" your own books/ find the time. Still an interesting look at the final hours of "der Feuhrer".....CLARIFICATION: introduction ONLY is read by Bill O'Reilly and the rest by Robert Petkoff.

almost the same as killing Patton

it feels as though 80% of this book is the same as killing Patton. I would recommend that one and skipping Hitler's last days.

Very disapponited

Any additional comments?

Just finished Killing Patton and enjoyed it, but then started listening to Hitler's Last Days and it is almost verbatim in every chapter except read by someone else. Sleazy way to repackage something for money. Will have to start reading reviews on his books from now on. I'm going to ask for my money back.

Accessible and compelling

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book for its ease of understanding and the information it contains on historical events and the people who were part of it.

Have you listened to any of Bill O'Reilly - introduction and Robert Petkoff ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was the first I read by performed by Robert Petkoff. He is excellent. Bill O'Reilly's reading is good for the introduction. I'm glad that Petkoff read the text of the book though, since his voice is much more pleasing to the ear and he obviously has acting training. His phrasing ability to portray the thoughts and words of the characters is top notch.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I never want to listen to a book in one sitting unless it is a murder mystery with the whodunit in the last 5 pages like one by Dean Kootnz. Even then, I would prefer to extend my enjoyment of a work of art by a consummate artist. That said, this book is gripping and moves along. It grabs the imagination.

Any additional comments?

I commend Mr. O'Reilly for making the effort to put history before the hearts and minds of youth and even adults with this book. We need citizens who know history.

A great history book

Bill has a great way of teaching history he draws you in and you are hooked and you learn a lot more of what you thought you knew. Explaining how and what lead up to Hitler's raise and what led to his death. Also you learn what happened to the rest of the key players in the war. Another best seller. And the narrator brought the book to life, great job

Excellent History Lesson

What a fun and interesting history lesson about the end of WW2 in Europe. I enjoyed the storyline never becoming boring or dry. Worth one's time as part of important US history.

History comes to life

Bill O'Rdilly did a superb job bringing the heroic acts of the Allies, and the despicable acts of the Nazis, to life in this well- written work. It was wonderfully narrated. It is a compelling piece of literature.

Just an abbreviated version of 'Killing Patton'

This book is nothing more than a few sections taken directly from O'Reilly's other book 'Killing Patton'. Although, the narration is significantly better than Bill O'Reilly himself, who can't pronounce Auschwitz or Joachim Peiper.
