    This is one of the most interesting books that I have ever read about Adolf Hitler, and I have read a great many Not only does it successfully demolish a number of myths about this German private who served in World War 1 WW1 and then later destroyed so many innocent lives as well as most of Europe To summarise it would be difficult, but let me attempt to list some of the many things t

    Answered my questions about how those who served with him saw him No hero, never a corporal, just a private who refused the responsibility of promotion because he would have to lead on the front Most of his comrades saw him as a rear area pig running messages only BEHIND the lines Interesting how many of them became victims of the Nazi rise to power, if they d...

    Weber pursues an interesting line of inquiry, specifically seeking to debunk the myth that Hitler s experience in WWI shaped his weltanshauung This notion arises from the fact that Hitler made brilliant use of a fawning media once he was in power and his propaganda sought to validate the often fanciful accounts of his war experiences as recounted in Mein Kampf By making the assumption that Hitler

    This is a great addition to the biographical literature on Adolf Hitler that attempts to shed light on one of the least understood periods of his life, the First World War While this is commonly felt to have been one of the most formative periods of Hitler s life, the author makes a reasonably convincing case that most of what is claimed about the period is actually an invention of Nazi or anti Nazi

    This is an interesting read, clearly carefully researched I am not normally a student of the Hitler story arc, and almost everything in here was news to me Goes pretty deeply into the future Fuhrer s experiences in the Great War the book almost tracks his war experiences day by day and how they did or did not shape his later policies This book needed a final copyedit, and at times I wished the author
