A new book suggests Adolf Hitler had one testicle, and a deformed ***** that made it quite a bit smaller than normal.
Authors Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craigie cite previously unseen medical records in their new book, Hitler's Last Day: Minute by Minute .
"Hitler himself is believed to have had two forms of genital abnormality: an undescended testicle and a rare condition called penile hypospadius in which the urethra opens on the underside of the *****," they wrote.
The birth defect often comes with an underdeveloped foreskin and sometimes a curved, smaller ***** -- from which the historians suggest Hitler also suffered.
The deformity might have also been behind Hitler's suicide plans to have his remains burned, so his body would not be paraded by Russian captors.
Experts have repeatedly speculated on Hitler's sexuality, suggesting he was a latent homosexual, and that he had a feces fetish, among other theories.
Hypospadias, as well as the undescended testicle, would have made sex complicated or possibly impossible in any case. Hitler's doctor, Theodor Morell, is said to have prescribed him amphetamines and hormones to amp up his sex drive.
