Product description

"The Hitler biography of the twenty-first century" (Richard J. Evans), Ian Kershaw's Hitler is a one-volume masterpiece that will become the standard work. From Hitler's origins as a failed artist in fin-de-siecle Vienna to the terrifying last days in his Berlin bunker, Kershaw's richly illustrated biography is a mesmerizing portrait of how Hitler attained, exercised, and retained power. Drawing on previously untapped sources, such as Goebbels's diaries, Kershaw addresses the crucial questions about the unique nature of Nazi radicalism, about the Holocaust, and about the poisoned European world that allowed Hitler to operate so effectively.

Review quote

"An achievement of the very highest order." -- Michael Burleigh "A superb biography." -- Ian Buruma "Kershaw is the indispensable and definitive guide to Hitler, Nazism, and the nation that, for a while, shamefully refracted his evil genius." -- Martin Rubin
