About this title
[This is the MP3CD audiobook format in vinyl case.]
Written by acclaimed biographer A. N. Wilson, Hitler is a short, sharp, gripping account of one of the twentieth century's most notorious figures. In it, Wilson offers a fresh interpretation of the life of the ''ultimate demon-tyrant of history.''
A ruthless dictator who saved his country from economic ruin only to nearly destroy it--and an entire people--in his quest for world domination, Adolf Hitler forever changed the course of history. His unlikely rise to power and his uncanny ability to manipulate his fellow man resulted in the deaths of millions of Europeans and a horrific world war, yet despite his colossal role in world history, he remains mythologized and, as a result, misunderstood. In this masterful account of Hitler's life, A. N. Wilson pulls back the curtain to reveal the man behind the mythic figure, shedding new light on Hitler's personality, desires, and complex relationship with the German people. Wilson limns this mysterious figure with great verve and acuity, showing that it is Hitler's frightening normalcy--not some otherworldly evilness--that makes him so truly terrifying.
In a field dense with lengthy tomes, this brief, penetrating portrait provides a compelling introduction to a man whose evil continues to fascinate and appall.
