    This book was just what I was looking for A brief introduction to one of the world most notorious megalomaniacs It gave an interesting overview of Hitler s background, his rise to power, and the situation in Germany which made him the man of the moment, and encouraged his career to blossom The war was discussed in terms of Germany s triumphs and failures Many people round the world saw it as Hitler s War , and given his determination to personally direct the army, this was not inappropriate This book was just what I was looking for A brief introduction to one of the world most notorious megalomaniacs It gave an interesting overview of Hitler s background, his rise to power, and the situation in Germany which made him the man of the moment, and encouraged his career to blossom The war was discussed in terms of Germany s triumphs and failures Many people round the world saw it as Hitler s War , and given his determination to personally direct the army, this was not inappropriate.A N...

    The life of the most reviled man in history is always a tricky subject Not the perspective which is universally one of the utmost horror but the manner of its telling I think because AN Wilson has written A Short Biography of Adolf Hitler, that most will look upon this modest, and yes short, 190 page book as inconsequential as such a study of this person must require farpages to be worth the reading After all, how to compress the man who arguably shaped the modern world into its cur The life of the most reviled man in history is always a tricky subject Not the perspective which is universally one of the utmost horror but the manner of its telling I think because AN Wilson has written A Short Biography of Adolf Hitler, that most will look upon this modest, and yes short, 190 page book as inconsequential as such a study of this person must require farpages to be worth the reading After all, how to compress the man who arguably shaped the modern world into its current incarnation, into such a relatively short book compared to say, Ian Kershaw s Hubris a...

    I enjoyed reading this brief about 200 pages biography of Hitler The author did a great job of bringing Hitler s personal characteristics to life However, I was hoping to the author would do a bittowards explaining Hitler s rise to power Instead, while he does a good job of describing events, all too often, he falls back on the old saws of Hitler s supposed charisma and the power vacuum in Germany during the 30s.as to his c...

    After having read some fairly hefty books in the past on WW2, it was refreshing to find a quick and easy read on what is obviously such a complex topic as Hitler Despite being able to read this in one or two sittings, I did find several insights and new levels of thinking that kept me interested that Hitler s lies stretched back to his youth was unsurprising, but the contradictions in his writings and speeches when compared to his lack of personal drive was very interesting A short and sharp After having read some fairly hefty books in the past on WW2, it was refreshing to find a quick and easy read on what is obviously such a complex topic as Hitler Despi...

    A thought provoking little book only 200 pages which details Hitler s childhood and rise to power and shows us where Hitler was quite ordinary and where extraordinary And where barking mad The author surmises that another Hitler is quite possible So beware the non...

    Initially, this book does not cover new ground, but Wilson s insights as always are fresh and thoughtful The last chapter is quite amazing and particularly trenchant The equal of his excellent books on Paul and Jesus Wilson s historical writing is outstanding.

    A good introductory, overview of Hitler s life His transformation from a homeless person to almost the dictator of all Europe is still amazing He not only wanted to eliminate the Jews but to make virtual slaves of all Europeans Along the way Wilson also dispels some of the common myths about Hitler.

    Bearing in mind this is a very short biography with no grand designs, it is actually quite good Wilson builds a vivid picture of Hitler, his personality and his internal hang ups I would recommend this short book as a starting point for further exploration into the life of this abomination.
