In Berlin, capital of the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler proclaims that Germany will still achieve victory and orders his Generals and advisers to fight to the last man.
Hitler, himself, degenerates into a paranoid shell of a man, full of optimism one moment and suicidal depression the next.

Bruno Ganz is truly excellent in his role as Adolf Hitler, a tired man who sees his "Reich" fall, but cannot accept it.
Although I'm not a fan of long war movies, these 2,5 hours passed very quickly due to excellent acting, great sets, FX and storyline. Somehow, every scene is dripping with underlying tension that never really explodes; a kind of unsettling unbelieved grips you when you see seemingly ordinary people commit astonishing atrocities and sins towards mankind, just for their faith and loyalty to one man, Hitler, who himself walks the edge of reason.

The city and the Third Reich surrendered at the beginning of May Hitler was dead by then. He spent this time inside his bunker beneath the Reich Chancellery in Berlin where he tried to conduct a defensive and declined all offers for evacuation, and where he finally committed suicide.

It read like fiction, but at the same time seemed to display sound judgement and great attention to both detail and historical truth. Niecierpek Jan 3, An immensely readable short book about the fall of Hitler and the Third Reich. Fest's writing style is perfect for the non-specialist and his analysis of Hitler as a wholly new phenomenon in world history in terms of sheer mania for destruction without purpose is clear and convincing.
According to this book, Hitler merely revelled in destruction, and took more satisfaction from carnage, chaos and ultimate defeat than from any victory he managed to attain.
