Includes several maps and a section of b&w photo plates. An in-depth examination of Hitler's covert bunkers and command centers. Reveals details of the Fuhrer's living and work arrangements. Includes bunkers and command centers under constructions, and those that never got past the planning stage. While observing the early campaigns in Poland and Yugoslavia from his special trains, Hitler made the decision that for the invasion of France, his foray into the Soviet Union, and the defense of the Atlantic coastline, he needed solid, impenetrable headquarters. To that end, 20,000 workers were employed in the construction of string of concrete bunkers that stretched from the middle of France deep into the Ukraine. Throughout the course of the war, the bunkers allowed Hitler to evade Allied detection and afforded him an extraordinary level of personal protection.
