Adolf Hitler was probably the greatest mover and shaker of the twentieth century. Certainly no other human disrupted so many lives in our times or stirred so much hatred. He also inspired widespread adoration and was the hope and ideal of millions. The passage of years sine his end has done little to alter the perspective of either enemies or true believers. Today we see the other leaders of his ear -- Roosevelt, Churchill, Mussolini, Stalin - in a different, more objective light but the image of Hitler has remained essentially the same. To the few who remained his faithful followers he is a hero, a fallen Messiah; to the rest he is still a madman, a political and military bungler, an evil murdered beyond redemption whose successes were reached by criminal means.
