My Struggle is a book that few people will want to read. This is because it was written by one of the most reviled men in history and because of the way it was written. The impression of Hitler from films and World War II books is simply a negative one: An evil war mongerer responsible for the deaths of millions. Reading his own book is intriguing and this is part of its relatively small appeal. In a similar way that classic books (e.g. Anna Karenina/Dead Souls) begin, after the first few pages you realise you are reading something created by an exceptional mind. However this book is not a beautiful story. This is not like a magazine article tackling a hard subject with little time which gives the astute reader the impression that he or she knows more about the subject than the writer. The first book `A Reckoning is partially a story of Hitler s life, World War One and much of his theories and philosophy. You enter into a strange world of paragraph long sentences, repetition, constantly twisting and turning. Hitler has a go at politicians, policies, parasites e.t.c. and in a classic way is blind to the concept that his ideas might be as blinkered as those he attacks. He believes anything miserable, weak or cowardly must be eradicated, having no compassion or pity for anything that does not conform to his ideals. Hatred is a large part of this book. This book has more hatred in it than a quarter of a mile long oil tanker has oil. There is hatred for Jews, hatred against anyone who is not ulta-nationalistic or anyone not German. The author gives the impression that if the whole world were wiped out except for Germany this in itself would not be a bad thing --By A Customer on 22 Mar. 2006
A good political read, very interesting to hear Hitler's rationale contemporaneously. --By A. G. Mahoney on 5 Feb. 2011
This new edition is easier to read, it has historical notes in the text, and it is more accurate than the other translations. It is by the same company that produced "Mein Kampf: A translation controversy"This is an excellent edition of Mein Kampf. --By EarlR on 2 Nov. 2010 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
A Career Includes internationally acclaimed film Hilter: A Career Directed by Joachim C. Fest and Christian Herrendoerfer. Joachim C. Fest s film, made in 1977, documents the Hitler period and attempts to give a rational and concrete account of that epoch. It also provides a basis for judgment. The film cannot change German history, it does not glorify it either. It does however illuminate it, especially for those who can no longer imagine what it was like. None of the scenes in this film were reconstructed. They are without exception taken from authentic film and sound materials, original evidence from the Nazi period. This is also the case with the unusual and largely unknown sequences in colour. The film was compiled from more than 300,000 feet of film material, including many incomplete or unreleased scenes from German and foreign archives. Many unusual sequences come from private collections as well. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
