4.0 out of 5 stars A hard but interesting read., 18 July 2007
This review is from: Mein Kampf (Paperback)
Mein Kampf is difficult to read,but at the same time very interesting.I found when reading it that page after page would deal with - as you might imagine - very mundane political issues from early German history,then all of a sudden Herr Hitler would begin to speak of the present.One thing that struck me was the fact that Hitler was clearly a man of colossal inteligance,not the 'raging beast' we see so often in WW2 footage on the tv.

In this book Herr Hitler goes from talking about how he used to wake up at 05:30 every morning at his army barracks in Munich just to watch - and take great delight in watching - the mice in his room playing in the dim light,to talking about the Holy Roman Empire,to talking about the Jewish threat to Germany all withing a couple of paragraphs of each other.

He also says things you wouldn't expect him to - such as how much he admires the English,and that he considers England as one of the only European countries Germany can be allied to. . . .They never taught me that in school history class,but that's the point isn't it - if you want to know more about that man,and that time in history then you have to find out for yourself,first hand - and discard what my old bearded,anorak wearing marxist of a history teacher ever told you.Enjoy.
