A new book has suggested that Adolf Hitler not only survived WWII but lived a fruitful life in Argentina.
In the new book ‘Grey Wolf: The Escape Of Adolf Hitler,’ British authors Gerrard Williams and Simon Dunstan have written that on the night of April 27, 1945, three people, Hitler, Eva Braun, brother-in-law, Hermann Fegelein, emerged from a secret tunnel connecting the bunker to the surface. Everything was prepared to the last detail by Heinrich Muller, head of the Gestapo, right down to the dress worn by the body doubles that would be passed of as the corpses of the Fuhrer and his intended bride, Braun.
The small party reached the vast Hohenzollerndamm that ran through the centre of Berlin, where a Junkers-52 transport aircraft waited for them, with Captain Peter Baumgart, an experienced Luftwaffe pilot, piloting the plane. The small team landed in Denmark, then jetted off to Spain, from where General Franco supplied the team with an aircraft to take them to the Canary Islands.
From there, Hitler got aboard a submarine to reach the Argentine coast, where he got off near the small port of Necochea, some 300 miles south of Buenos Aires. He never set foot outside Argentina and found some form of domestic happiness by marrying Eva Braun, with whom he fathered two daughters.
And after 17 years of living in hiding, he died on February 13, 1962, aged 73.
