This review is from: Adolf Hitler (Paperback)
As a novice in modern history, I find this book illuminating of the attitudes of the time, as well as of the man. Evidently a very well researched book, written in a non-academic and very readable style. While this era is plainly well documented, the number of detailed and fascinating scenarios is remarkable. The author sets out to write as if with no pre judgement. A difficult target to set, but I can detect no overall agenda, and this helps to show how people at the time, pre-war, were enthralled by the man (including Lloyd George and Bernard Shaw, but not Mussolini).
I am only half way through the book, but having been daunted by a book of this length, find it much more of a page-turner than I expected, and of course the length appears to be well justified.
