The unresolved death of Geli Raubal, Hitler`s half-niece and romantic obsession, is a murky footnotes of the Führer`s early career
The unresolved and hastily covered-up death in 1931 of Geli Raubal, Hitler`s half-niece and romantic obsession, has long been relegated to the murky footnotes of the Führer`s early career in the demimonde of Munich. And calls for a new investigation are stirring up another Austrian crisis of conscience.

Everything you need to know about Adolf Hitler`s "missing" testicle
Why we`re so obsessed the Führer`s sex life. Somebody make it stop. Myths and more myths: He was a "predatory" homosexual; He engaged in excretory practices with his underage half-niece Geli Raubal; Hitler had only one testicle. Isn`t it obvious by now what this is about? Our need to prove that Hitler was not "normal," thus not like us. It is true that Hitler was injured during the battle of the Somme - but in "the left thigh" not "the abdomen" as claimed in a recent article by Alex Peake. Though Peake never produced any evidence of the existence of the supposed confirming witness serious publications picked up his story.

Unity Mitford had Adolf Hitler’s love child?
Unity Mitford had been so entwined in the Führer’s inner circle that secret services described her as "more Nazi than the Nazis". When Britain declared war on the Third Reich in 1939, Mitford was so devastated that she shot herself in the head with a pearl-handled pistol in Munich. She traveled back to Britain living as an invalid in the Cotswolds until her death in 1948. Martin Bright describes a phone call he got from Val Hann: "She explained that her aunt Betty Norton had run a maternity home ... and that Unity Mitford had been one of her clients." When asked who the father might be, Hann paused before replying: "Well, she always said it was Hitler’s."

Adolf Hitler`s correspondence revealed: Love letters to Nazi dictator
Adolf Hitler received more fan letters than Mick Jagger, Madonna and the Beatles combined. Many were from women wanting to marry him, others from men wanting to be like him. What Adolf Hitler thought of this mass hysteria died with him in Berlin in 1945. But thousands of the letters survived and have been compiled into a book "Letters to Hitler: A People Writes to its Fuehrer." The letters were found by the Russian at Reich chancellery, at the Berghof and in in Munich. One woman wrote: "I would like to make you my little puppy my dear, my eternal, my lovely Adolf." Karl Leiff wrote: "If only all Germans could be as pure of heart and as noble of purpose as you."

The Lost Life of Eva Braun - Biography of Frau Hitler
When Adolf Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker on April 29, 1945, he wasn’t alone. Joining the Fuhrer in death was Eva Braun, his mistress of 13 years, whom he married just 36 hours before. Who was Eva Braun, a woman whose name remains recognizable 62 years after her death? Angela Lambert has penned a biography, only the second about Eva Braun to be written in English. Eva Braun made herself indispensable to Adolf Hitler, making him laugh and relax. "I’ve always said that I shan’t go on living if anything happens to you. You know that my whole life is loving you," she wrote him in 1944, after an assassination attempt left Hitler wounded.

Adolf Hitler may have been gay and open to blackmail
Adolf Hitler may have been gay, according to a book "Adolf Hitler: The Final Analysis", by physician Andrew Norman. Book studies how the leader of Nazi Germany’s mental and physical state affected his judgement and conduct as he led the country into Word War Two. The book suggests the leader`s past left him open to blackmail. Hitler may have suffered from a variety of conditions which led to his fanaticism including paranoia and anti-social personality disorders. Many of the warmonger’s colleagues were gay, such as Ernst Rohm, the head of the Nazi SA storm troopers, known as the Brownshirts.

Adolf Hitler`s love book to Eva Braun for sale - Inscribed with "My darling Eva"   (Article no longer available from the original source)
A book of Bavarian poetry Adolf Hitler gave his girlfriend Eva Braun in 1940 with a sentimental inscription is up for auction with an asking price of $175,000. The copy of "Josef Filsers Briefwexel" is inscribed in German with the words: "My darling Eva. A gift of love from the heart. Adolf Hitler. Berlin Jan. 19, 1940." The German adjective Hitler used for darling indicates a sincere, tender affection. It is the only known written indication of affection Hitler showed for Braun. The pair later married, and committed suicide together in a Berlin bunker.

Love Letters to Hitler
Of all the books about the Third Reich that have flooded Germany as it marks the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, few are as bizarre and provacative as one called Love Letter to Adolf Hitler. "Sweetest love, favorite of my heart, my one and only, my dearest, my truest and hottest beloved," one of the letters begins. "I could kiss you a thousand times and still not be satisfied. My love for you is endless, so tender, so hot and so complete." All the letters are genuine. They were discovered strewn about the destroyed Chancellery from which Hitler had directed his campaign of war.

Hitler was gay - and killed to hide it, book says
Adolf Hitler was gay - or so says a sensational biography on the Nazi dictator. Eyewitness accounts from Hitler`s former lovers, and historical documents that for the first time illuminate rumours that have circulated for over half a century. The respected German historian Lothar Machtan even claims in his book that Hitler ordered the deaths of several high-ranking Nazis to prevent the secret of his homosexuality from surfacing. Ernst Röhm, the leader of Hitler`s Sturm Abteilung or Storm Troopers, tried to blackmail Hitler by threatening to reveal his sexuality. Röhm, who was also gay, was murdered as a result.
