Summary The amazing true story of the British intelligence officer who helped to track down Hitler's last will Herman Rothman arrived in Britain from Germany as a Jewish refugee in the early years of World War II. He joined the British Army and in 1945 was posted to Westertimke and Fallingbostel PoW camps to interrogate high-ranking Nazi war criminals. When papers were discovered sewn into the shoulders of a jacket belonging to Heinz Lorenz, who had been Goebbels' press secretary, he and a team of four others were charged with translating them under conditions of the deepest secrecy. The documents turned out to be the originals of Hitler's personal and political wills. Later on, in Rottenburg hospital, Rothman interrogated Hermann Karnau, a police guard in Hitler's bunker, to establish information about the Fuhrer's final moments. Hitler's Will is the amazing true story of Herman Rothman's remarkable life, including how he managed to escape from Nazi Germany before the War began, and his role in bringing to light Hitler's personal and political testaments.
