Adolf Hitler began writing Mein Kampf after he was sentenced to prison for his attempted coup d’état. He used the time to dictate his thoughts as his secretary, a luxury he was allowed in prison, typed his words. Hitler’s intent was not to reveal his goals to the public but to maintain control of a radical political movement that was in danger of collapsing. He later regretted revealing so much. We have a rare look into the mind of a dictator which can be valuable to any student of history or politics.
This is the original German language version of Mein Kampf. It is presented here for those who wish to compare the original text to the English translations and for study of the original work itself.
Hitler often used words in an unusual way and the book includes references to people and places that are unfamiliar even to native Germans. We recommend also reading the Ford English translation of Mein Kampf which is the most accurate and easiest to read version produced. It includes additional notes about the history of this work and annotations in the text which make the work much easier to understand for both native English speakers and German speakers.
This book has been reproduced based on an original 1943 edition printed by the Nazi printing office, Eher Verlag. The cover is also an accurate copy of the original cover purchased by millions of Germans.
You can find an excellent history and translation guide in the book Mein Kampf: A Translation Controversy.

Mein Kampf was first published in two volumes in 1925-26 and sold between eight and nine million copies in German during Hitler's lifetime, as well as being widely translated. It is the most notorious political tract of the twentieth century. This translation by James Murphy (who worked in Goebbels's Ministry of propaganda from 1934 to 1938) is considered standard.
Mein Kampf remains necessary reading for those who seek to understand the Holocaust, for students of totalitarian psychology and for all those who care to safeguard democracy.Product Description:
