What weapon did Hitler use to kill himself?
He shot himself in the head with a Walther PPK 7.65mm pistol, some sources claim that he simultaniously bit a cyanide tablet as well.
Adolph Hitler shot his mistress, Eva Braun, and his dog, then killed himself, just as Soviet forces were approaching Berlin. He didn't want to face the humiliation of capture and surrender. Afterwards came the saying, "Even Hitler loved his dog." ^ Minor correction - Hitler didn't kill his wife. She chose to end her life through the use of a cyanide capsule.
