11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Michael David Booker on 16 Sept. 2006
Format: Hardcover
The author - an acknowledged authority on Gemany between the period 1918-1945 has produced a volume that I think many readers will agree, is a very different biography of Adolf Hitler, one which will therefore will appeal to many historians and students of military history, as well a large number of general readers too.

This excellent volume is based on the author's extensive original research and reveals in print for the first time, many aspects of Hitler's life that were not widely known until now. It is said that this is the first book to convincingly explain the basis of Hitler's anti-Semitism and in that respect alone it will be invaluable for many. From another angle, he also demonstrates the importance of art in Hitler's life and his vision for the future of the German people.

It also reveals the truth behind the 1939 assassination attempt on Hitler's life and with the extracts from Mein Kampf and the many excellent photographs also included (which I personally believe tell a story all on their own), this volume provides the reader with a fascinating insight into the dictators life in general and thought processes,therfore making it a very interesting and readable volume.

An impressively researched, deftly written, and confidently recommended biography 6 Mar. 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
There have been dozens of biographies on Adolph Hitler. Not surprising in view of his impact on Europe and the world in the early decades of the 20th century. Michael FitzGerald's biography differs from the others in several significant ways. Readers are presented with a portrait of Hitler that arising from the influence of Western European art, architecture and culture on his 'world view'. FitzGerald reveals that Hitler was the first European leader to adopt radical economic policies which were primarily responsible for bringing Germany out of the disastrous recession and runaway inflation brought about by the draconian provisions forced upon the nation by the victorious Allies after World War I. It will come as a surprise to most readers that Hitler was also the first world leader to adopt 'green' policies for his countries natural environment. An impressively researched, deftly written, and confidently recommended biography, "Adolph Hitler: A Portrait" also reveals the origins of Hitler's anti-Semitism and the very curious and unexpected phenomena of high-ranking anti-Semitic Jews within the Nazi Party.
