WHO WOULD YOU BELIEVE FBI:Hitler lived in the Andes, OR HITLER'S BODYGUARD
Intriguing details of the Führer's final moments, as well as clues to his relationship with lover Eva Braun and the truth behind Rudolf Hess' peace mission to the UK, have been revealed in a book by the person who found Hitler dead.
The collection of photos belonging to Hitler's personal bodyguard, Rochus Misch, inside the book also offer an intimate look into the private lives of the Nazi dictator and those close to him.
Candid pictures show Hitler and Eva Braun, among others, relaxing on the terrace at the Berghof residence, inside one of Hitler's many studies and homes and Misch standing guard.
The details of Hitler's last minutes and other details about his private life have been revealed in Rochus Misch's book, Hitler's Last Witness.
Pictured here is Adolf Hitler's last visit to the troops. It was taken at the Ninth German Army HQ in Oderfront on March 11, 1945. Behind a seated Hitler is General Ritter von Greim (wearing spectacles), to the right is General Theodor Busse who was the commanding officer of the Ninth Army (also wearing spectacles) and between them is Luftwaffe Colonel Hans-Ulrich Rudel

Adolf Hitler travelling to the Berghof - his home in the Obersalzberg of the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgadenin - in two Ju 52 planes. Hitler would board the first plane with his close entourage while the second was reserved for all his bodyguards, known as the SS-Begleitkommando and the members of the RSD, or the Reichssicherheitsdienst, which was an SS security force of Nazi Germany

The book's commissioning editor Martin Mace said that on April 30, 1945, Rochus Misch was at the switchboard in Hitler's bunker when he received the message from General Keitel.
The message was that he had failed to break the Soviet encirclement of Berlin, and that the end of WWII was both close at hand and inevitable.
'Shortly afterwards, Misch heard Hitler talking quietly to Bormann and others. He looked and saw Hitler walk into his study, Eva, now Mrs Hitler, followed him in,' said Mr Mace.
'He saw Otto Günsche, the Führer's adjutant, close the door behind the newly-married couple.
'Güsche told Misch that the boss was not to be disturbed.
'Hitler shook hands with Günsche and told him that all soldiers were released from their oath of loyalty.
'Hitler had already told his adjutant that he did not want his body to be publicly abused as Mussolini's had been and that he wanted his corpse to be burned.
'This had already been arranged by Günsche with an SS Reichssicherheitsdienst man who assisted Misch on the switchboard.
'Everyone in the bunker waited nervously. Then there was some commotion.
'The study door was opened and Misch looked inside.'
Misch told his editor: 'My glance fell first on Eva. She was seated with her legs drawn up, her head inclined towards Hitler. Her shoes were under the sofa. Near her … the dead Hitler. His eyes were open and staring, his head had fallen forward slightly.'
The details of Hitler's last minutes and other information about his private life have been revealed in Rochus Misch's (right) book, Hitler's Last Witness, which is available to English readers for the first time and is published by Pen and Sword. He is pictured here with Michael Stehle
Enjoying a rare day off, Rochus Misch (pictured nearest to the camera) is seen lazing at the Moysee near FHQ Wolfsschanze - Hitler's first Eastern Front military headquarters in the Second World War kown as Wolf's Lair. He was with his colleague Karl Weichelt (right) and a female stenographer

There was a lively trade between FHQ Wehrwolf staff and the local Ukrainians, in which fresh geese were exchanged for sewing needles. Führerhauptquartier (FHQ) Werwolf was the codename used for one of Adolf Hitler's Eastern Front military headquarters located in a pine forest about seven miles north of Vinnytsia, in Ukraine, which was used between 1942 and 1943. It was one of a number of Fuhrer headquarters throughout Europe, and the most easterly ever used by Hitler in person

FHQ Wolfscchanze, which translates to Wolf's Lair, was Adolf Hitler's first Eastern Front military headquarters. The complex, which became one of several headquarters in various parts of Eastern Europe, was built for the start of Operation Barbarossa – the invasion of the Soviet Union – in 1941
On August 1, 1936 Rochus Misch and his Aunt Sofia saw his later boss for the first time. This photo shows the South Gate to the Olympic stadium by which Hitler entered
This is the man (left) responsible for bringing Rochus Misch to Adolf Hitler. His name is Wilhelm Mohnke - one of the first SS men in Hitler's SS Stabswache Berlin and commander of 5th Company SS-Leibstandarte. Hitler's sister Paula (right). Early in his service in May 1940, Rochus Misch travelled to Vienna to give her a letter and a parcel from her brother

Hitler's study in the Old Reich Chancellery, which was the traditional name of the office of the Chancellor of Germany. Today the office of the German chancellor is usually called Kanzleramt (Chancellor's Office), or more formally Bundeskanzleramt (Federal Chancellor's Office). The latter is also the name of the new seat of the Chancellor's Office, completed in 2001
Hitler's study in a wooden barrack hut at FHQ Wehrwolf. The Nazis destroyed the site, including mining access to the underground complex, on abandoning the region. The site was examined after the Nazi departure in March 1944 under the orders of Joseph Stalin, but no documentation was found. The Soviet Union took steps to permanently seal the underground parts of the complex.
After being seriously wounded in the 1939 Polish campaign, Rochus Misch was invited to join Hitler's SS-bodyguard. There he served until the war's end as Hitler's bodyguard, courier, orderly and finally as Chief of Communications.
From his close contact with the Nazi dictator Misch could observe many things and believed Hitler and Eva Braun were lovers long before it was revealed.
'For instance, Eva was introduced to staff and visitors as the 'housekeeper' at the Berghof,' said Mr Mace.
'But her room and Hitler's had private communicating doors. 'One soon had one's own ideas about this', Misch commented.
'He also saw Eva in 'a flimsy nightie' in the guestroom when he was on his way to deliver some despatches to Hitler. Eva put her finger to her mouth to tell Misch to say nothing.
'Misch shot out of the room, fully expecting to be dismissed from Hitler's bodyguard (or worse!) but Eva, seemingly, said nothing to Hitler about it.
'He also states that he heard both Eva and Magada Goebbels declare their determination to die with their respective men. 'We have lived with them. We shall die with them,' they said.'

In June 1945, US investigators examine the sofa on which the couple committed suicide. Rochus Misch had been an eyewitness on April 30, 1945. He saw Eva and Adolf Hitler dead in the Fuhrerbunker
Without knowing what significance the area would have for him later, Rochus Misch spent six weeks at the Berghof (pictured in 1941) during military training with 5th Company, SS-Leibstandarte

Misch also confirmed that Rudolf Hess did not have Hitler's permission to go to the UK to negotiate terms of surrender.
'He saw how the news was given to Hitler by Hess's adjutant, Karl-Heinz Pintsch as Hess had arranged,' said Mr Mace.
'Hitler was outraged, tirelessly repeating to himself: 'Why did he do this to me?' Anyone who had knowledge of Hess' flight to Britain was arrested and sent to Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
'There can be no doubt, therefore, that Hess did not have Hitler's permission to go to the UK.
This picture shows a Nazi torchlight gathering similar to those held at Nuremberg where fascist supporters would gather to hear Hitler speaking each year
Another shows a Nazi officer riding a horse, his armband adorned with a swastika clearly visible - the symbol would always be worn on the left hand side of the uniform
The Deutschland Erwache standard, left, was frequently carried by Nazi troops as they marched in formation - the phrase means 'Germany awakens'. Pictured right is a swastika statue bearing Adolf Hitler's name as well as an Imperial Eagle symbol
'All the pictures are unpublished. They look like they were privately taken so would be unlikely to have been reprinted or published anywhere.
'There is a certain macabre aspect to it, given that it was owned and handled by evil people.
'But they were people who were right at the focus of history, a pivotal moment in time that culminated in the suicide of Adolf Hitler.

While the leader of Nazi Germany Hitler used several planes including the Junkers 52 aircraft, above, named 'Immelmann' after the First World War flying ace Max Immelmann.
The Junkers G24, pictured, was another aircraft used in Nazi Germany during World War II, although primarily for freight transport.
German forces also used biplanes, similar to the one pictured above, for reconnaissance missions
One of this group of soldiers, pictured above left, can be seen performing the infamous Nazi salute - it was used as a greeting when the party was in control of Germany and was often accompanied with the phrase: 'Heil, mein Fuhrer'
Nazi architecture, above left, relied primarily on natural materials to create intimidating buildings that would last for years - symbolising the party's desire for world domination. Pictured right is a group of Nazis visiting the Victory Column in the German capital Berlin.
Auctioneer Tim Harper said: 'My guess is that the album will go to someone who wants a powerful and visual statement from history'
The garages of the Berghof Nazi headquarters are seen in another image - two open-top vehicles are parked outside surrounded by Nazi officials while another watches from the property's balcony, left
The building also had immaculate gardens, left, and views of the surrounding Bavarian mountains. Pictured right is a man who appears to be wearing Lederhosen - or leather breeches - a costume commonly associated with the region
The Berghof was situated on top of a 3,000 foot mountain and surrounded by dense forests, pictured above
Not all of the photographs in the collection feature soldiers and military equipment - some of them are much more scenic such as this lake scene pictured above
The Berghof, left and right, was eventually damaged by hundreds of British Lancaster Bombers in late April 1945. It was then set on fire by retreating SS troops in early May
Also in the album is a picture of the Konigssee Lake, above, where Eva Braun liked to go swimming. The photographer who took the images is not known but it has been speculated that it could be Braun because she does not appear in any
'My guess is that the album will go to someone who wants a powerful and visual statement from history.'
The album measures 13ins by 9ins and is being sold on March 15.
The Berghof, which is shown in many of the images, was expanded and renamed in 1935 to become Hitler's holiday residence for ten years.
Before the war several British leaders even visited the dictator at the retreat, including former Prime Ministers Neville Chamberlain and David Lloyd-George and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
The building was constructed in the early 20th century and heavily modified in the run up to the war so that Hitler could use it as a base.
A group of Nazis can be seen with what appears to be architectural equipment, pictured left, while another image taken inside the Reich Chancellery, above right, reveals the photographer's extraordinary access
Hitler left the building for the last time in mid-1944 to run the final stages of the war from his eastern front headquarters in Poland.
In late April 1945, 12 days before the Germans surrendered, the house was damaged by hundreds of British Lancaster Bombers.
It was then set on fire by retreating SS troops in early May, and looted after Allied troops reached the area.
The burnt out shell was demolished by the West German government in 1952.
