Did we ever find out who let the dogs out?

Decided to leave The Book of Genesis and find something else. Last year I bought 'Das Buch Hitler' by German authors Henrik Eberle and Matthias Uhl. It is a book that contains a complete translation of the file about Hitler, ordered by Stalin after World War II. It's mainly based on the interrogations held with Otto Günsche and Heinz Linge, Hitlers adjutants, who was held in Soviet captivity after the war. Other senior military personnel in captivity, as for instans Field Marshal von Paulus, also contributed with written information for this 'portrait of Hitler'. The manuscript was then interestingly enough edited and 'modified' by the Soviet intellegence service, NKVD, before presented to Stalin.
It's an interesting document ... Very detailed of course ... Here and there it's quite obvious, that the document was edited by someone who serves other means, because the document uses phrases that a German officer would never have written. 


The weather is so nice. I've been sitting on the balcony for a couple of hours, reading and drinking tea. Soon time for dinner and more reading .....
