The Telegraph reports on the death of Fritz Darges, who died last Saturday at age 96:
Darges was the last surviving member of Hitler’s inner circle and was present for all major conferences, social engagements and policy announcements for four years of the war.
Much of his time after 1942 was either spent at Hitler’s eastern headquarters the ‘Wolf’s Lair’ at Rastenburg, East Prussia, or at his holiday home, the Berghof, on a mountain in Berchtesgaden, Bavaria.
“We all dreamed of a greater German empire,” he said. “That is why I served him and would do it all again now,” said the man who had a career after the war selling cars.
