Absolutely Loyal To the Almost End

Artur “Willy” Kannenberg was Hitler’s major domo, butler, and the man who supplied food to everyone in the bunker toward the end. The underground passageway between the Reich Chancellery and the Fuhrer Bunker was known as “Kannenberg’s Alley” because it was stocked with delicacies of every sort from a large collection of fine wines to bread. However, before the Soviet ring closed around Berlin and trapped him, Kannenberg produced two German Army trucks out of nowhere, loaded them with the best of his wine collection, and got the hell out of Berlin before anyone noticed he was gone.
