Summary After being seriously wounded in the 1939 Polish campaign, Rochus Misch was invited to join Hitler''s SS-bodyguard. There he served until the war''s end as Hitler''s bodyguard, courier, orderly and finally as Chief of Communications. On the Berghof terrace he watched Eva Braun organize parties; observed Heinrich Himmler and Albert Speer; and monitored telephone conversations from Berlin to the East Prussian FHQ on 20 July 1944 after the attempt on Hitler''s life. Towards the end Misch was drawn into the F├╝hrerbunker with the last of the ''faithful''. As defeat approached, he remained in charge
