John Toland's "Pictorial Documentary" of Adolf Hitler was an attempt to capitalize on the apparently unexpected sucess of his Hitler biography (titled simply, "Adolf Hitler").
The author's pictorial biography recycles portions of the text from his original biography of Hitler and surrounds the text with photos of the topic under discussion (e.g., Hitler's background-childhood). There are over 450 photos altogether and a well-written and informative caption is provided for each one. (A section of color photos is included but they are less than spectacular, being primarily drawings by Hitler, postcards from World War I, and Nazi posters.)
You may thus learn nothing new if you have already read the full-fledged biography. On the other hand, the photos of this man, his era, and his acolytes are interesting in and of themselves, and the pictures are well-chosen and cover every aspect of Hitler's life (from his 1899 birth records to the 1947 burning of a pair of his trousers that survived the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt). (The public burning of Hitler's trousers was personally supervised by no less than Gen. Eisenhower, which goes to show the deepseated fear of Hitler even after he died, but of course the Soviets were still playing hide and seek with Hitler's remains during this time and there were onging rumors, often fueled by the Soviet press, that Hitler was still alive.)
If one does not want to wade through Toland's original two-volume tome on Hitler (now readily available in one handy volume), then this pictorial biography is an adequate basic introduction to Hitler's life, lies, and times.
(I recommend buying the hardback edition. I initially bought the paperback version, but the pages were yellowing and the binding not the best. I then bought a heavily discounted hardbook edition. The pages in the hardback, and thus the reproductions of the photos, are far superior to those in the paperback, and, of course, the binding is better as well.)
