THE RISE AND FALL OF ADOLF HITLER

KIRKUS REVIEW

This is an important book recommended for every awakening teenager and guaranteed to capture and sustain profound attention from the first to the last page. No dull recorder of dates and events, this author imparts his own observations of Hitler as he saw him during his rise to power. Against the political climate of the 20s and 30s, each step toward Hitler's coup is included, the Beer Hall Putsch, his imprisonment and diabolical prediction in rabble-rousing organizing and final chancellorship. Details of his initial bloodless conquests, his treaties and then the events of World War II are presented. German defeat and Hitler's gradual disintegration, all the major events of his "bloody trall" emerge to create a full double portrait, of the paranoid Vienna tramp and of his monstrous deeds. Facts throughout are authenticated with quotations and eye witness reports. A knowledgeable dramatic account.
