Summary
Given his status as arguably the most despised political figure in history, it is surprising that there have only been four serious biographies of the Führer since the 1930s. Perhaps even more surprisingly, his biographers have been more interested in how he came to power and how he exercised his leadership than in Hitler the person. Yet to render Hitler as a political animal with no personality to speak of, as a man of limited intelligence and poor social skills, does little to explain the spell that he cast not only on those close to him but on the German people as a whole. Here, Volker Ullrich sets out to correct our perception of the Führer
