With Hitler to the End: The Memoirs of Hitler's Valet


With Hitler to the End: The Memoirs of Hitler's Valet Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heinz Linge worked with Adolf Hitler for a ten-year period from 1935 until the Führers death in the Berlin bunker in May 1945. He was one of the last to leave the bunker and was responsible for guarding the door while Hitler killed himself.

During his years of service, Linge was responsible for all aspects of Hitlers household and was constantly by his side. He claims that only Eva Braun stood closer to Hitler over these years.

Here, Linge recounts the daily routine in Hitlers household: his eating habits, his foibles, his preferences, his sense of humor, and his private life with Eva Braun. In fact, Linge believed Hitlers closest companion was his dog Blondi. After the war Linge said in an interview, “It was easier for him to sign a death warrant for an officer on the front than to swallow bad news about the health of his dog.” Linge also charts the changes in Hitlers character during their time together and his fading health during the last years of the war. During his last days, Hitlers right eye began to hurt intensely and Linge was responsible for administering cocaine drops to kill the pain. In a number of instances—such as with the Stauffenberg bomb plot of July 1944—Linge gives an excellent eyewitness account of events. He also gives thumbnail profiles of the prominent members of Hitlers “court”: Hess, Speer, Bormann and Ribbentrop amongst them.

Though Linge held an SS rank, he claims not to have been a Nazi Party member. His profile of one of historys worst demons is not blindly uncritical, but it is nonetheless affectionate. The Hitler that emerges is a multi-faceted individual: unpredictable and demanding, but not of an otherwise unpleasant nature.


The remarkable memoir of a man who was by Hitler’s side from 1935 to 1945.


The remarkable memoir of a man as close to Hitler as anyone during his brutal rule.
