Synopses & Reviews
These dramatic monologues are spoken by members of the German High Command--Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Albert Speer, Hermann Goering--their wives and mistresses, during the last month of the European campaign of World War II. In language and forms that astonish, The Fuehrer Bunker reveals human beings at their worst--petty, pathetic, desperate.
