If I had wanted a biography of Angela Lambert I would have bought one! As it is, about half of the book is nothing but footnotes, and some of the barbed asides about Eva's appearance in general were unnecessarily mean-spirited. I was expecting a REAL biography of Eva Braun. What I got was the same old hitler/nazi rehash with a little of Eva Braun thrown in. Nothing of any true importance, even about Hitler.

Angela Lambert reveals a woman the world never knew until the last twenty-four hours of her life. In the small hours of April 29, 1945, as Allied troops raced to capture Berlin and the bunker below the Reichskanzlei where the defeated Nazi leaders were hiding, Eva Braun finally achieved her life's ambition by becoming Hitler's wife. Next day they both swallowed cyanide and died instantly.

The Lost Life of Eva Braun. As I read I found myself becoming attached to Eva Braun, almost as if I was reading a friend's biography rather than a stranger's. Another great thing about this book is that it really helped me understand and (gasp) feel sympathy for the German people during WWII. This book opened my eyes in new ways and I j This is the first historical book that I've read cover-to-cover without skipping any chapters or sections. The author has a great narrative voice and blends fact with description very well.

Lambert insists that her minute examination of Braun's life proves that she has been unfairly caricatured "as a feather-brained non-entity" who partied and worried about her wardrobe while her lover set the world aflame.

The woman who finally married Hitler right before committing suicide with him in his bunker in Berlin at the end of the war, Lambert argues, was caring, sensitive and, above all, loyal.

Merely to tell us Eva's life story gets us no further in this endless quest, which is doubtless why Lambert also interweaves a potted history of the Hitler years, making skilled - and fully acknowledged - use of the work of Richard Evans, Antony Beevor, Alan Bullock and others, as well as their German counterparts and Günter Grass's novel Crabwalk, the first important. German book to examine the horrors of life as an ordinary German civilian during the War. It is almost too obvious to state that the key figure in the book is not Eva Braun but Adolf Hitler

Eva Braun was born in Munich and was the second daughter of school teacher Friedrich "Fritz" Braun (1879–1964) and Franziska "Fanny" Kronberger (1885–1976); her mother had worked as a seamstress before her marriage. She had an elder sister, Ilse (1909–1979), and a younger sister, Margarete (Gretl) (1915–1987). New York: W. W. Norton & Company. ISBN 978-0-393-06757-6.

Includes bibliographical references (pages 470-475) and index. Eva Braun is one of history's most famous nonentities. She has been dismissed as a racist, feather-headed shop girl, and yet six decades after her death her name is still instantly recognizable. She left her convent school at the age of seventeen and met Hitler a few months later. She became his mistress before she was twenty. How did unsophisticated little Fräulein Braun, 23 years his junior, hold the most powerful man in Europe in an exclusive relationship that lasted from 1932 until their joint suicide?

The inner lives of the top Nazis and their families, Hitler's famous mistress---ultimately his wife---comes to three-dimensional life in this penetrating and critically acclaimed biography.

She left her convent school at the age of seventeen and met Hitler a few months later. She became his mistress before age twenty. They remained in an exclusive sexual relationship from 1932 until their joint suicides at the end of the war. Hitler's chauffeur called her "the unhappiest woman in Germany." The Führer humiliated her in public while the top Nazis' wives despised her. Yet Albert Speer said: "She has been much maligned. She was very shy, modest. A man's woman: gay, gentle, and kind; incredibly undemanding . . . a restful sort of girl." This authoritative biography, only the second life of Eva Braun written in English, based on detailed new research, opens a new window on life at the cold heart of the Nazi leadership.

i did not like this book. i do not think the author did much research, or made up some stuff, as different from other authors about eva braun. she made her look like the victim. millions of people were being killed while eva was swimming, taking pictures of her fun at the bunker, flirting with the young german officers. i guess she thought it was a privledge, flirting with the Fuhrer's mistress. As Albert Speer quoted, historians will be disappointed in Eva Braun, this book is no exception

Seems sensational and poorly researched. One example: the author made a fairly extreme statement about Hitler's health and then cited a movie review for Der Untergang as the citation. This seems very dubious to me. There are several other similar examples I found in my partial reading of this. I have decided this is not worth reading. This book is not of academic standards. It's really more of a novel partially based on a true story than actually history.

Hitler was very evil, but that doesn't mean every rumor about him is true. The author apparently doesn't realize that.

I found this to be a rather poorly-written, poorly-organized bio. The author seemed somehow obsessed with comparing and contrasting her own family with Eva. If I had wanted a biography of Angela Lambert I would have bought one! As it is, about half of the book is nothing but footnotes, and some of the barbed asides about Eva's appearance in general were unnecessarily mean-spirited. Not to mention the fact that the author goes to pains to continuously point out the differences between Eva and Gretl, then mistakes them for each other herself!

I was expecting a REAL biography of Eva Braun. What I got was the same old hitler/nazi rehash with a little of Eva Braun thrown in. Nothing of any true importance, even about Hitler. If nothing else, I thought Ms Lambert would have had a good psychoanalyst read her manuscript and done several detailed chapters of Braun's psychological development and general make-up. No such luck. Another VERY TROUBLESOME thing was that the known neo-nazi and holocaust denier David Irving's books, articles, etcetera were cited in a half-dozen footnotes as sources. Not good.

For years I have read many books about the 3rd Reich and it's major players. However, Eva Braun was one who was as close to Hitler as no one else was, offering a different viewpoint on der Fuehrer until recently unavailable. This book offers fascinating incite into the personal lives of Hitler and his "mistress" and future wife. It humanizes a monster of a man who was responsible for the deaths of millions. It doesn't make him any more easier to understand, but it shows the human side of Adolf Hitler.

The title of the book is very appropriate, as once you get further and further into reading it you see that Eva Braun's life was taken from her by the Nazi dictator that she apparently loved. She sacrificed and endured many years under unbearable strain for this man, she forsake the idea of being a mother, suffered indignation amongst her family, and willing became a non-entity to protect the image of the man she loved. Her best, short years were taken from her. It could be said she made a pact with the devil himself to live with Hitler and to share her life with him and reach a certain intimacy no one else alive could provide.

This book was excellently written, well researched, and offers a fabulous personal perspective of Eva Braun that I have not read about elsewhere.

Thank you!!
This book was extremely thorough and informative, well written. It has stayed with me and I read it 2-3? years ago. I'm planning on re-reading it. I'm sure I missed some things.
