Interesting book. Like the author says, our view of any famous, or indeed infamous, individual is always constructed in a particular way; usually it is shaped by their deeds. No one person can ever completely describe another's private life free from bias, especially in the case of someone as evil as Hitler. This book shows that there was another side to him - he was after all just a man. Of course he was also a pitiless dictator capable of extreme cruelty and, as Ken Ford suggests, no words can condemn him enough, but it was fascinating to read that he had relationships with women which appear to have been ‘normal’. But in the end his overriding nastiness will always overshadow any of his minor redeeming features.
