More and more details emerge about the escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of the Second World War.
CIA veteran Bob Baer said: “The narrative the government gives us is a lie. if you look at the FBI files it throws open the investigation.
“What we are doing is re-examine history, history that we thought was settled that Hitler died in the bunker but the deeper we get into it, it’s clear to me we don’t have any facts for it.”
The team have access to 700 pages of newly declassified information, with one document stating: “American Army officials in Germany have not located Hitler’s body nor is there any reliable source that Hitler is dead.”
The team, who feature in a series on The History Channel, used sonar, historical maps and cutting-edge technology as well as interviewing a series of alleged witnesses to the crazed dictator’s escape.
Hitler easily faked his own death through the use of double, say the team, who add the corpse found by the Russians was actually five inches shorter than Hitler with a smaller skull.
Not to mention the fact the body disappeared before the American or British authorities could investigate it.
Some reports suggested Hitler had lived to 95 with a lover in Brazil after an unusual photograph emerged.
Ex-United Nations (UN) war crimes investigator John Cencich helps lead the investigation. Initially a sceptic, Mr Cencich insists there IS evidence both Hitler and his wife Eva Braun had doubles.
He said: “We do know from evidence both of them had doubles. If someone was going to stage a crime scene, this was the perfect way to do it.
“The accepted truth that he committed suicide is ambiguous.”
As the war came to an end many Nazis fled and set up a new life in warmer climes, many making it all the way to South America and the crack team uncover a mass Nazi exodus from Templehof airport the day after Hitler was last seen in public.
In a further twist, the plane even contained Hitler’s luggage.
The team conclude Hitler could not have made the long journey in a single trip and evidence points them towards the Canary Islands and Greece.
Interviewing an alleged witness to Hitler’s escape Mr Cencich speaks to a former construction worker who claims to have seen Hitler in May 1945, days after he supposedly died in Berlin.
The Greek man tells Mr Cencich: “In 1945 I was building a secret construction inside the monastery in Samos.
“I had to build secret tunnels and compartments for Germans. Yes, the Germans were Nazis and one of these guys was Adolf Hitler.
“He was right there, he wasn’t wearing a moustache or anything. this was May 1945. I realised it was really Hitler because of the airplane.
“I went to work in another town. The first thing I saw in this town was a German airplane. It had landed in an old potato field. the farmer told me there were five people who landed, they were German.”
From there it is believed Hitler travelled by U-Boat to Argentina to be reunited with his Nazi comrades.
A complex network of tunnels and secret airplanes made the journey possible.
In the series, the team travel to Argentina to uncover a school that was part of the Nazi Youth movement before heading into the jungle to search a recently discovered Nazi compound before making their investigation leads them to the Canary Islands.
The series is the latest in a long line of theories surrounding the fate of the Nazi dictator with mystery surrounding the exact details around the aftermath of his death and concerns raised over the Russians, who found the bunker first, and their investigation.
