A more personal account of Hitler,
This review is from: I Was Hitler's Chauffeur: The Memoir of Erich Kempka (Hardcover)
Hitler employed Kempka in 1934 as his personal chauffeur. From then until the wars end the two became very interlinked, with Kempka being at Hitler's side practically until the dictators downfall. Far from what you would expect we discover a much kinder side to the Fuhrer than we would have expected. Hitler is portrayed as a kind employer, someone who is not afraid to get personal with his staff and genuinely cares for their wellbeing.
It also dispels any myths that Hitler was not a hands on leader, as Kempka describes in detail how he used to visit the front line in order to see for himself the conditions.
As others have said the memoirs are actually only around half of the book, the other being made up of a number of appendix detailing further account of Hitler in the war.
A really interesting read and easily recommendable.
