A phone directory belonging to Adolf Hitler, which contains details of some of the key Nazi figures has been listed for auction.

The book was recovered in Berlin at the end of World War two by Captain John Hodge.

Captain John Hodge was a British Grenadier Guards officer.

The book is expected to fetch up to $20,000.

Hitler’s directory contains more than 200 handwritten entries, including Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels, Rudolph Hess, Hermann Goering, Joachim Von Ribbentrop, Reinhard Heydrich, Albert Speer and Albert Bormann, though there is one glaring omission - Adolf Hitler.

Speaking to the Fox News, auctioneer Andrew Aldridge said that the book offers both historians and collectors access to a previously unseen amount of information

The book also contains a letter from Goebbels which was found folded inside it.

Captain Hodge was one of the first British soldiers to reach Berlin at the end of the war and it was his job to instruct civilians to clear debris from various parts of the Reich Chancellery, which is where he found the directory.

It was during this mission that he found the telephone directory.
