The Bormann Letters
The Bormann Letters
Weidenfeld, British Book Center, 1954, 200 pp

This correspondence between Bormann and his wife, between January 1943 and April 1945, adds some light to our picture of the inner Nazi circle in the last years of the régime, but is of most interest for its peculiar but characteristic mixture of sentimentality and ruthlessness, family homeliness and Nazi mystique. Has a useful introduction by H. R. Trevor-Roper.
