HANS BAUR. ALS: "Hans Baur/Chief Pilot to the Führer", 2p, 8¼x6, front and verso. Munich, 1980 March 5. In German, no translation. Hans Baur (1897-1993) tells Mr. Freund that he has written a book. The English version is out of print in England but there will be a new American English version. Hitler's last order to Baur was to fly Martin Bormann out of Berlin, but during their escape attempt on the night of May 1, 1945, Baur lost sight of Bormann and was shot and captured by the Russians. For the next ten years, the Russians ruthlessly questioned him because they suspected that Baur had flown Hitler to safety before the fall of Berlin. After his release, he returned to Germany, where he wrote his memoirs, Mit Mächtigen zwischen Himmel und Erde (With Powerful Ones Between Skies and Earth), 1971, most probably the book he refers to in this letter. Mid-vertical fold touches 1 letter of signature. Fine condition.
