View Full Version : Last member of Hitler's inner circle, Fritz Darges, dies at 96

The last member of Adolf Hitler's notorious inner circle has died at age 96, leaving behind instructions to publish a manuscript about his time spent alongside the German dictator, the Telegraph reported.

I share this without comment, merely to note this for historical interest as to the time frame we are simulating with SH3.

Fox News link (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,570501,00.html)

This bit from the link is funny:

In 1944, Darges' relationship with Hitler changed at a conference when Hitler ordered him to destroy a fly that buzzed around the room.

Darges suggested that, as it was an "airborne pest," the job should go to the Luftwaffe staff officer, Nicolaus von Below.

Enraged, Hitler dismissed Darges, yelling, "You're for the eastern front," and Darges was sent to combat.
