Adolf Hitler. The drama of his career by James Murphy
This being one of the very first English language biographies to be written about Adolf Hitler, his politics and his subsequent rise to power, it should immediately be consider essential reading for any student of the man himself, and his National Socialist "experiment".

It's the equivalent of Vanity Publishing in the book industry (where's an editor when you need one!). In this collection of material Adam has given us a work which is lesser than the sum of its parts.

Stop with the: 'It's production is similar… Read more
