3.0 out of 5 stars Good, could be better 29 Sep 2009
This book is good but is "dumbed down" slightly, i found. However all the relevant information is there and a good mix of information on the National Socialist Government itself and Hitler's personal life. . .

An interesting read for anyone who enjoys reading about World War II or Nazism.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...he was a man before he became a monster... 21 Feb 2013
By A. Ali
It's less than a century ago but sometimes the rise of the Nazis seems like ancient history. Paul Roland makes it all seem very contemporary and goes a long way to helping me understand how Hitler and his supporters became so powerful. As well as Roland's writing, there are some brilliant pictures, including one of Hitler during the First World War, with a rather rakish moustache, which serves as a poignant reminder that he was a man before he became a monster.

1.0 out of 5 stars Facts v Fiction 17 April 2009
By Bloo
For anyone who is interested in this period of history there are a number of works that provide a good insight to the politics and events leading up to the emergence of the Third Reich and it's inevitable consequences. Sadly this book is not one of them.

I have read many books on the subject and I am open minded to the different views the author may have. What I do expect is factual content, this is something that Mr Roland seems to ignore. Even the commentary of the illustrations leaves a lot to be desired with glaring inaccuracies and pure invention.

If you are interested in this subject I would give this book a wide birth and invest your hard earned cash in something that is reliable and based on fact, such as the Richard J. Evans trilogy or William Shirer' Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rhetoric and Propaganda 6 Jan 2011
By Richard - Published on
I have been reading Paul Roland's book for the past few days and I think I have to stop myself. I am a Secondary History teacher and focus mainly on the World Wars and I believe the negative picture that Mr. Roland paints of Adolf Hitler is one based on unproven facts and assumptions. One example would be Mr. Roland's method of proving that Alois Schicklgruber (Hitler's Father) was not an alcoholic as Hitler had reported. Mr. Roland states that Alois was respected and highly ranked in the customs service which he served and made enough money to buy a nice house on a large plot of land, thus proving that Alois was not an alcoholic. I am not sure about the logic used to make such a large assumption.

Over and over I felt Mr. Roland twisting facts and making unsupported implications. I felt it was best to not allow myself to be subjected to his propaganda.
4.0 out of 5 stars Illustrated History of the Nazis (hard cover) 24 Mar 2012
By Henry Waterman - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The subtitle of this book, "The nightmare rise and fall of Adolph Hitler" more aptly conveys what Paul Roland's book is really about. It is more about Hitler than the Nazi movement itself, despite the fact the two are inseparable. The author gives many different opinions of Hitler and makes many assumptions about him that may or may not be accurate. But I found his ideas about Hitler riveting. His insights into Hitler's mind and personality are very interesting. Having written many other books on related and also different subjects, Roland is no doubt a very knowledgable writer. And he writes well. It is easy to understand what he is saying, whether the reader accepts what he says or not. His study of Hitler from his birth until his death is rather comprehensive. I would recommend the book more to readers who have read many books on Hitler than to those who have not read much on Hitler because much of what Roland says is debatable and the reader needs to already have a deep understanding of Hitler to be able to intelligently assess the allegations Roland makes about Hitler and the theories he advances about him. I would remiss in not indicating the book contains many pictures, several that have been depicted in other publications, but several I have never seen before.
