At the end of the World War II, the defeated Nazi commanders in the Berlin bunker, surrounded by the trappings of their sybaritic lifestyle, are supposed calmly to have committed suicide. It is now accepted that the body of Martin Bormann was misidentified and that he escaped to South America. But using newly-released evidence from the Soviet archives, Hugh Thomas offers forensic proof that the identifications of the other corpses are invalid. Only one of those supposed to have died in the bunker can be said with any certainty to have done so. And even then, the cause of death remains a mystery. Thomas reappraises the final days of the war, throwing light on why the Allies' official historians needed to conclude it so neatly, and in the midst of the chaos emerges an elaborate deception concealing the escape of the architects of the Third Reich.

About the Author:
It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of Lynne Millward who died of cancer in the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham on Tuesday 6 March. Lynne, who was a Reader in the psychology department, joined the University in 1993 initially as a research fellow working with Glynis Breakwell and Chris Fife-Schaw before taking up a lectureship in October of that year. She had previously worked as an occupational psychologist in a consulting capacity for Walpole Ltd after having taken her PhD at Kent and BA Exeter. One of her first tasks as a lecturer was working with Dr Peter Wood to set up the MSc in Occupational and Organisational Psychology which, by virtue of their gaining BPS accreditation, became a very popular course with students and a great success that still runs nearly 20 years later. In recent years she took over as Course Director for the undergraduate psychology degree injecting new energy into the course and steering it through the major restructuring task of converting it into 15 credit format. Lynne put a lot of effort into both her teaching and research but it is for her relationship with colleagues and students that she will be most remembered. She was extremely generous with her time and support and determined that students grow and develop. This was evident in the way she prioritised the students and made sure they had a good, fair and just experience whilst at Surrey.
