London: After more than six decades since the end of Adolf Hitler’s regime in a Berlin bunker, many unpublished photographs of the underground lair have been revealed to the public.

These pictures, published by mirror.co.uk, capture the incredible drama of the Second World War’s final act, when Russian shells bombed the city to rubble.

While one picture shows the command centre after it had been burned by retreating German troops and then looted by Russians, another is that of American journalists examining the bloodstained sofa where Hitler shot himself after Braun took poison.

Life magazine’s William Vandivert took these photographs.
