Summary
"Adolf Hitler's story is that of a 'nobody' who used political chaos, economic ruin, and social unrest to forge one of the most fearsome political and military machines the world has ever seen ... Longerich's biography reveals a portrait of a man driven to megalomaniacal projects, who refused to accept humiliation and defeat, and whose reflex when confronted by obstacles to his designs was a strategy of annihilation ... This comprehensive biography examines every angle of Hitler's life, focusing in particular on the twelve years he was in power"--Dust jacket
