Hitler Ascent 1889 1939Is and starved by an economic depression but his real gift is to show vividly how Hitler used his ruthlessness and political talent to shape the Nazi party and lead it to power For decades the world has tried to grasp how Hitler was possible By focusing on the man at the center of it all on how he experienced his world formed his political beliefs and wielded power this riveting biography brings us closer than ever to the answerTranslated from the German by Jefferson Chas This is one of the best biographies I have ever read You get a strong sense of Hitler the man Hitler the politician Hitler the great orator Hitler the village idiot always afraid someone would see through the complicated and deep personae he had created Germany is also given a full and deep look I have always wondered why German Jews failed to emigrate near the end of the thirties and Ullrich clearly answers their assets were stolen and they were financially unable to meet the high taxes placed upon them to leave and not enough countries cared enough to let them in Readable enjoyable and intensely topical for today and our many small but all too nuclear powered demigods around the globe Hitler did not have our communication technologies and our weapons of mass destruction and our highly vulnerable liberal democracies seemingly doomed by a singularly mad and ravenous religiously powered hunger for converts and the absolute annihilation of anyone who deems to disagree with either their means or their methods Hitler would be appalled at their crudeness and astonished at their achievements
