Adolf Hitler is the most notorious political figure of the twentieth century. The story of his life, how he became a dictator, and how he managed to convince so many to follow his cause is a subject of perennial fascination. This new accessible biography looks at Hitlera (TM)s life from his childhood, his time as a drop out, his awakening as a revolutionary and his then relatively conventional ascent to power. The story charts the days of Nazi Germany and the Second World War through to Hitlera (TM)s humiliating defeat and death in his bunker.

Michael Lynch addresses the fundamental question surrounding Hitler: Was he was the product of a unique, extraordinary epoch, or was he its creator? In the context of the great mass of ideas and interpretations that have been produced in response to this basic yet demanding question, Michael Lynch provides a balanced guide that will be enlightening for students and general readers alike.

From the Publisher:

Adolf Hitler is the most notorious political figure of the twentieth century. The story of his life, how he became a dictator, and how he managed to convince so many to follow his cause is a subject of perennial fascination.

Balancing narrative and analysis, this biography employs a chronological approach to describe the main features of Hitler?s career. Set against the background of developments in Germany and Europe during his lifetime, the text tells the extraordinary story of how an Austrian layabout rose to become F├╝hrer of the Third Reich.

The chapters incorporate into their narrative the major debates surrounding Hitler?s ideas, behaviour and historical significance. Particular attention is paid to his experience as a soldier in 1914 -18 and to the reasons why his original left-wing sympathies transmuted into Nazism. Arguments over the real character of Hitler?s dictatorship are analysed and a measured assessment is offered on the disputed issues of how far Hitler initiated the Third Reich?s domestic and foreign policies himself and to what extent he was controlled by events. His destructive leadership of wartime Germany is now a subject of close scrutiny among historians and the book?s final chapters deal with this theme and offer a set of reflections on Hitler?s relationship with the German people and his legacy to the German nation.

Michael Lynch provides a balanced guide to this most difficult of figures that will be enlightening for students and general readers alike
