Review: Hitler: The Path to Power

User Review  - Patrick - Goodreads

This is probably the best non-fiction book I've ever read. It reads like a novel, is gripping, and tells in detail a part of history that anyone who is curious about the origins of WW2 (and everyone should be curious about that) should know. Highly reccomended. Read full review

Review: Hitler: The Path to Power

User Review  - Sam Pearson - Goodreads

The finest account of Hitler's early political activities. I can't think of a better resource. The narrative style brings the history to life. No other book has captured the often farcical and outlandish nature of Weimar Germany quite like Flood's. Read full review
