The Nazi leader is famously meant to have committed suicide alongside his wife Eva Braun in his bunker at the tail end of the Second World War.

But Bob Baer and his team have scoured never-before-seen documents which he says shows 'the most evil man in history' in fact survived the allied invasion of Berlin - and beyond.

Moreover they claim Hitler made it all the way to Argentina - first by Luftwaffe plane and then via a submarine which collected him from the Canary Islands.

There, they claim, he intended to lead the 'Fourth Reich' from a secure military compound.

The bombshell revelations will be explored in a new TV series called Hunting Hitler for The History Channel.

Veteran CIA agent Bob Baer - assisted by US special forces sergeant Tim Kennedy, who was involved in the capture of Osama Bin Laden - explained: "The narrative the government gives us is a lie.

"If you look at the FBI files it throws open the investigation.

"What we are doing is re-examining history, history that we thought was settled that Hitler died in the bunker but the deeper we get into it, it's clear to me we don't have any facts for it."

Mr Baer's team claim to have access to 700 pages of newly declassified information.

One document, purportedly from British Intelligence, is said to claim Hitler was secretly flown out of the German capital by Luftwaffe pilot Captain Peter Baumgart.

The team claim Hitler 'easily' faked his own death through the use of a double, as the corpse found by Russians was said to be five inches shorter than Hitler and with a smaller skull.

The duo also claim to have found evidence of a fifth exit from the bunker - which has never previously been reported.

Ex-United Nations war crimes investigator John Cencich also interviews an alleged witness to Hitler's escape for the TV series.

The Greek former construction worker tells Mr Cencich: "In 1945 I was building a secret construction inside the monastery in Samos."

"I had to build secret tunnels and compartments for Germans," he continued. "Yes, the Germans were Nazis and one of these guys was Adolf Hitler.

"He was right there, he wasn't wearing a moustache or anything. This was May 1945.

"I realised it was really Hitler because of the airplane.

"I went to work in another town. The first thing I saw in this town was a German airplane. It had landed in an old potato field. The farmer told me there were five people who landed, they were German."

Mr Cencich said: "The accepted truth that he committed suicide is ambiguous."

When the war came to an end many Nazis made an exodus to South America to begin a new life away from Europe.

It is claimed Hitler traveled by U-Boat to Argentina from the Canary Islands to be reunited with his comrades.
