Product Description

Product Description

Hitler had very definite views on the role of women in Nazi Germany; they were all destined to be wives and mothers. It was their duty to marry and produce lots of children for the future of the Third Reich. Set apart from these ‘ordinary’ women were a select group of others who were particularly close to him. They lived within his inner circle. They spent their lives in a cocoon, closeted amongst the elite of the nation far removed from the bestiality that Hitler wrought upon many of his own people. To them Hitler was a kindly figure: gentle, considerate, and often very generous. He treated these women with great tenderness appearing to them as the perfect gentleman. They loved and respected him to an extent that it is now hard to believe possible. Many of these women, such as Eva Braun, Geli Raubal and Unity Mitford are now quite well known, but there were many, many more women - mistresses, confidantes and companions - that also managed to get close to Hitler.

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.
