3.0 out of 5 stars New perspective on Hitler's rise and system of personal government, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Dark Charisma of Adolf Hitler (Kindle Edition)
The rise of Nazism told through the device of the unknown Austrian Corporal's progress from demobbed soldier to Chancellor and Head of State.
Never quite fully explains why Hitler managed to influence people ranging from the aristocratic Goering to the déclassé Himmler and the more left wing Strasser.
Deals well with the unravelling of the personal system of government. After adding Supreme Commander of the Wehrmacht to his official positions he inevitably became identified with defeat in the East. As the author points out this severely weakened and eventually all but destroyed the element of charisma yet young Hitler Jugend still manned barricades against the might of the Red Army.
That being said throws an interesting light on a well told if still a shocking period.
