En middelmådig hitler-biografi. For stor fokus på Hitlers "omvendelse" til racist under et sanatorieophold

Review: Adolf Hitler

User Review  - Lewis Weinstein - Goodreads

This is one of the very best accounts of the Nazi period. I am now reading the sections covering 1932-33 which tell the story of Hitler's rise to the Chancellorship, including who helped him and why. Read full review
