Who was Hitler's Successor and Why the Heck should you care?

Why? Because the story of the Flensburg Reich of Grand Admiral Doenitz is a very strange piece of World War II history you probably don't know about!

Grand Admiral Doenitz unfortunate fate was that Hitler named him his successor right before he blew his brains out in the Fuhrerbunker in Berlin on April 30, 1945.  It was Hitler's way of rewarding Doenitz for being the only Nazi leader not seeking a surrender.   As a result,  Doenitz got stuck with cleaning up Hitler's mess and having to surrender what was left of the Third Reich to the Allies. But then Doenitz got stuck with running a post-Hitler Nazi government for three whole weeks under Allied supervision. During that time all kinds of weird things happened.

The Flensburg 'Reich' is the setting of GERMANIA, a Novel, published by Simon & Schuster and now available (DIRT CHEAP) as an E-Book.
