This is my RAFT story I wrote in ELA WWS. Hope you like it

The Chef of Hitler

The chef was annoyed the food was very poor quality in his kitchen. He was disguising the smell and taste of rotting foods with herbs and spices. He hated having to cook with the horrible food that food that came in.

All the food he got had been smuggled into the fortress in secret ration packs. They couldn't order good food because the attacking armies stole the food from the transporters and ate it themselves.

Being Hitler’s private chef was not easy but he still had to try and make the best meals he could. The Fuhrer new the war was ending soon. The chef had heard Hitler one night talking to his General saying what would happen if the attacking armies entered the fortress and bunkers under Berlin. Before he could hear more there was a loud noise and the chef went to investigate before he could hear the rest of Hitler’s story.

The dinner party was to start in 2 hours. The chef went to his kitchen and began getting ready to cook. Soon he heard the Generals and Commanders enter the large dining hall. He looked through the small windows and saw the room wasn’t close to half full.

Before the war had started Hitler held a dinner party and the room had been overflowing with Generals and Commanders of the army. But the chef thought and Germany had lost a lot of men in the war and the less men there are the fewer generals needed to control them and give commands.

The meal started and everyone started eating but mostly they just picked away at their food. After 30mins of picking Hitler stood up and started to talk in his big booming voice. Instead of his usual encouragement he started to talk of the end of his Reich.

He said that the German army had at the most 10
Days of fighting before the U.S., Russian, British, and Canadian armies blew down the walls of Berlin Germany. Hitler looked at his head commander and told him that when the first foreign soldier entered the fortress that he must shoot Hitler and his servants and burn their bodies to ashes.

The chef was amazed the greatest man he knew was just going to have someone kill him when the attackers entered. Then he thought over Hitler’s words “shoot me and my two servants”, then it hit him he was one of the two servants this was probably the last dinner party he would ever cook. The second servant was the Butler who stood at the door. Hitler was taking his servants to the grave.
I must get out of here he thought, but how will I get out it will be impossible to get out and not be shot. The only way to maybe get out was to go into Hitler’s room and steal the plans to the underneath of the city. He knew there were secret tunnels and passages underneath Berlin. If he got out he could try and sneak into a civilian bunker and hide if he couldn’t get in he would be shot by the red army. But at least he won’t die with Hitler.

The next day Hitler went to the office to talk about the battle. The chef headed for Hitler’s room was he kept the maps. The maps where piled on a shelf in the corner. He needed the map of the secret tunnels which the secret service was using to try and escape from the attackers. He pulled all the maps out of the shelf and counted them there were 50 maps he had a 2% chance of picking the right one. He knew the map would be a larger one so he ruled out the 10 smaller maps; there were 2 huge maps that the chef knew were plans for Germania. He still had 38 maps to choose from so he looked if they had any markings or writing on them that said what they are. He saw that 20 of them said bunker or battle plans so he ruled out 20 more. Now he had only 18 to choose from he heard someone coming down the hall he quickly put all the other maps back on the shelf. He did eenie meenie minei mo on the maps and grabbed the 2 he landed on. He put the others back and left.

Once he was in the kitchen by himself he opened the maps. The first map was of the wolfs lair Hitler’s destroyed base and barracks in Poland close to the Russian border. The second map was of the Nazi escape route. Now he had to form a plan to get out if he waits to long he will die with Hitler. He decides that tomorrow night he will runaway and hopefully not be shot by the red army. If he comes out and it is the US army he will have a better chance of surviving. After one hour of studying the map he knew he would come out at the US haled suburbs.

The chef spent the entire day sneaking food and equipment to his room; he also took a small handgun. After dinner that night he thought that in 24 hours I shall be hopefully running along the Nazi escape route. Then there was a loud bang and the roof started to crumble. Sirens sounded as the RAF launched a bombing on the centre of Berlin. People started running to wards the entrances to the bunkers.

Once in the bunker the chef was no where near Hitler he couldn't be shot now only if they dragged him to Hitler. After two days of hiding they finally got the small radio working. They then heard an urgent broadcast the Fuhrer was dead on April 30, 1945 the great leader of the third Reich was dead. After the broadcast they played a piece of Hitler’s favorite music. Now the Chef had nothing to worry about but the attackers. In 2 days he found out that the German Wehrmacht had surrendered. The next day the people started coming out of the bunkers and saw the destroyed Berlin most helped the other armies destroy the last of the Nazi propaganda. The Chef was one of the few Nazis still living and he kept it to himself.
