About the Author

Rupert Colley was a librarian in Enfield for 22 years until September 2011. A history graduate, he launched the original History In An Hour in 2009 with a website, blog and ‘World War Two In An Hour’ as an iPhone app. He then expanded it to Kindle, iBooks and into the USA with a series of titles, and enlisted new writers by encouraging guest bloggers on the website. History In An Hour was acquired by HarperCollins in 2011.

Easy to read with lots of details about Hitler's background and behaviour. The book provided all that is needed in a short history and made excellent reading.

I adore these history in an hour books. This contains some interesting details surrounding one of the most awful men in history. A curious insight into the life of such a strange character and the influences around him. Nicely written, easy to follow chronologically and just enough information to satisfy my curiosity.
The only negative is that information was at times repetitive, but still a good read.

If you want the basic facts presented in a no-nonsense, succinct way, this series hits the spot. I'd been looking at reading something about Hitler but every book seems to revel in the level of detail it offers and subsequentl.y you're faced with a book that will take weeks to get through. This book gives you enough about Hitler, including his family background and how he became what he became. Maybe not for everyone who may want to dig a bit deeper into this subject area but I've also read the book in this series that covers the Russian revolution and that was also worth the read.

An easy read which embellishes on the details on the life of Hitler without getting you bogged down which is the case with many history books.

Very informative, quick and easy to read, give a very basic background of a terrible man. Would buy history in an hour again, worth the 99p

Excellent book , easy to read. For someone who tends to ignore history books due to the wordy and lengthy nature, this books holds the readers attention. It took me about 2/2·5 hours to read not an hour but I suppose I am a slow reader. After reading this book it has inspired me to read 'Mein Kampf'and many more of the 'history in an hour' books.
