Bullock’s is a bit dated now, I think, and he did not have the depth of current research now available on the Third Reich, while Kershaw’s, while excellent in many respects, is for me too narrowly focused, especially once the war starts.
In its entirety, the book was biograohy dull, but I was captivated by Mitford’s characterization of Hitler as a brilliant thinker, an enthusiastic leader, and perhaps most unsettling of all definitivw compassionate and generous friend. Toland has revealed Hitler within the context of the time that made him. Trending Price New. I read several books, mostly accounts by US soldiers who had served there. Could there be some similarity to the Germans’ democratic acquiescence to Hitler’s policies and our own democratic endorsements of foreign aggression?

Adollf more I looked into such matters, the more I doubted previous certainties. If you’re tired of all the teen vampire stuff on the market, buy this book and be educated sbout one of the most influential and dangerous people of the 20th Century. Superb research and extensive documentation was presented, detailing the events of his life and some of his compatriots, but in the end, I still did not understand the man, nor grasp how he was understood and admired by so many who followed him and believed in his vision.
The history Place Published: One thing I wanted to say that stood out to me was on the nature of national pride. From inside the book.

The biograph of information is staggering, as is Toland’s exquisite attention to detail. Slight shelf wear to board edges, corners of both volumes lightly bumped. What I liked about this book is that it is so incredibly thorough. It discusses in depth his dislike for Jewish Hotler, and how he didn’t hate the Jews just for the sake of hating. The details of the mass exterminations were and are still under constant scrutiny and so precise information will need to come from other sources, but Toland does exceed Bullock in this and other areas, simply by virtue of making better use of the sources available at axolf time and ignoring more questionable sources.
