Secret Voice of Hitler

Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim's war office.
Hitler was one of the first modern politicians to truly understand the power of the media, and his advisors micro-managed each of his public appearances. To record the Fhrer without permission could result in execution. Now, an extraordinary, unauthorized recording of a conversation kept hidden for over 60 years has come to light. Is it possible that the charming, relaxed, even reasonable man on the tape is Hitler himself? Did he divulge secrets that might rewrite the history of WWII?
