• First there was a plan to put Hitler on a plane and fly him out of Berlin. One of the streets in Berlin was used as a runway by remaining few German planes. Then when Russians got into position to shell the runway and started tightening their grip on Berlin, there was a plan to put Hitler in an armored car and organize a break-out of "Fortress Berlin". Hitler rejected the plan saying that he did not want to get killed by a stray bullet like a homeless dog. (At the same time his soldiers were dying in great numbers holding to the last man protecting the Fatherland.) Reference: Last Battle by Cornelius Ryan.
