Format: Hardcover
The subtitle to the book "Beyond Evil and Tyranny" is the key to this fascinating and engaging read.
Stolfi shows that the so-called "great" historians have been criminally negligent in their analysis and explanation of Hitler to date.
Their millions of readers short-changed by frauds cashing in on a fascination with Hitler while doing nothing other than portraying him as some cartoonish monster. Fine for the masses, but are you satisfied?
Fest, Bullock, Kershaw et al. allowed hatred of their subject to cloud any objective study of this titan of world history.
However, it seems that their monopoly of thought has now been broken.
Mr Stolfi reaches beyond the cliches and prejudices to show how Hitler came to be the most significant world figure of the 20th century.
Through this audacity he is able to make some ground-breaking arguments about Hitler and the vision he tried to put into reality.
The principal result is to focus again on Mein Kampf and the manifesto laid out therein. It is clear that rather than focussing on Jews the book places Hitler as an implacable foe of Communism/Marxism.
We learn about the Jewish preponderance of leadership in the post-WW1 communist uprisings in Germany. This crucial fact has been purposely overlooked by other historians.
Militarily, Stolfi also makes a compelling argument for a Hitler not interested in world domination but in ensuring the strategic protection of Germany's raw materials. The quest for the Thousand Year Reich demanded such a groundrock.
I see this as the first of a new wave of more mature and certainly revisionist biographies of Hitler than the rubbish we've had to date.
Flawed, Hitler may have been but he deserves his place up there with Caesar, Napoleon and the other Great men of history.
We, the reading public deserve better than the shoddy service we have received to date from the academics.
Thank you Mr Stolfi!

I found Stolfi's highly readable and refreshing take on Hitler fascinating. This is basically a critique of the great biographers of Hitler, from Bullock to Kershaw, avoiding labels like evil and psychopath and instead seeing Hitler as a world-historical personality, amoral, intense, idealistic and messianic, even comparing him to the Prophet Muhammad and Caesar, a man with a mission with only the restoration of German greatness and expansion in mind, Hitler with his artistic temperament and dramatic outlook on life had little sense of proportion which was both his curse and his gift...and he could have defeated Soviet Russia had he focused on Moscow in August 1941, instead of diverting forces south, thereby winning the war. Whether this book is a corrective I'll let others decide, but I found it rewarding. Essentially Stolfi's Hitler is a dark, tragic romantic figure, but I doubt we'll ever understand the real Adolf Hitler. Despite some excellent books on his early years and service in the Great War, I still await a history that will satisfactorily explain what actually happened to this man in 1919 which eventually led to so much bitterness, hatred and cruel murder of millions of innocent civilians, and the sacrifice and slaughter of military personnel, by the end of World War II.

It was a privilege to read this book and its' attempt to redress the balance over the obcscenely biased and basically untrue material that we are used to having served up to us from an early age . I doubt if many readers will ever feel the same way about ' The Chief ' after reading this. After a few chapters you soon realise just what an astounding man he was. I must admire the courage of Mr. Stolfi and his fairness in dealing with the subject. What was also very revealing to myself was when the author quotes the statistics on the numbers actually incarcerated by the National Socialists during their time in power - an astonishingly low number !

corrective to allied myopic propaganda. You need to read this to understand why Germany had to defend itself against the evils of jewish inspired communism. The Jews with some justification hated the ruling Russian elite and took their revenge on the russian aristocracy through the bolschewist revolution (Marx>Bronstein>Apfelbaum etc), which sought to wipe out the russian intelligentsia. After Russia the main focus of communist internationalism (the destruction of the nation states, who had persecuted God's self-important people) was Germany. Hitler was the strong leader needed to save a nation. We need to understand the great threat to Germany of communism. Unfortunately, Churchill and Rooseveldt backed the wrong horse and so helped the soviets destroy, rape and pillage half of Europe. Bulgaria and Romania will need another 50 years to recover from the national trauma inflicted by Stalin aided by the England and America, who supported communist Russia. History is indeed the story told by the victor. So look deeper for the facts!

Format: Hardcover
After 70+ years of Judeo-centric commentaries and propaganda about Adolf Hitler it's about time we had a much fairer and more balanced look at the central historical phenomenon of the 20th century.
Those who prefer to get their history from Jeremy Isaacs and Stephen Spielberg will find this book terribly shocking. In fact it is more than anything an expose of the lies and vile propaganda that have been heaped on this man (and his 'anti-Semitism) since Germany was defeated, though the propaganda blitz didn't really get under way until the very late 1960's.

The main problem people should have with Hitler is that his ideology was of a racist supremacist bent, like the very tribe whose hegemony he was (unsuccessfully) trying to disempower.

The main libel (and great lie) leveled against Hitler is that he ran facilities for the industrialised extermination of a race* (the "gas chambers"). This is history's greatest and most damaging lie. It has caused the shovelling of hundreds of billions of dollars in compensation into the hands of people who have recycled this money to take control of western political systems. Furthermore, this lie has displaced Christ on Calvary by the God of the Talmud, the "Jewish People" in Auschwitz.(no wonder Christ condemned these damnable satanists)
