5.0 out of 5 stars Gets under the skin, 23 Mar 2009
This review is from: Hitler (Wordsworth Military Library) (Paperback)
This is a superb look at the life of one the main figures of the 20th century. It gets under the skin of Hitler and gives you an idea of what made him tick. It is fully referenced. A lot of the accounts of incidents are reported with a great sense of immediacy adding drama to the narrative. It is a very balanced account of someone who became more and more unbalanced. You can see the logic of the invasion of the Rhineland, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland. The first cracks are seen when ordering the invasion of Yugoslavia. These cracks are extended with invasion of Russia and the subsequent failure of that. The unravelling of his mind is clearly documented and the author uses this to show how subsequent decisions were made and to show how the logic of his ideas (bent as they were) was put into practice. Absolutely fascinating.
