About this title


Written by a psychotherapist with experience in evaluating personality disorders, this volume concentrates on Adolf Hitler, looking at the motives that drove him to commit such atrocities as the Holocaust. It aims to show that the implementation of the Final Solution was the root of Hitler's most disastrous military decisions and that he had plans to sterilize millions of ordinary Germans. The author argues that many of Hitler's war decisions, which led to Germany's defeat, were not errors at all. Rather, they were calculated risks taken to advance Hitler's own secret agenda, of which even his top generals were unaware. Among Hitler's intentionally disastrous orders, the author includes allowing the British to escape at Dunkirk, delaying and then cancelling the invasion of England, attacking the Soviet Union, halting the advance of Moscow, declaring war on the United States, and ordering his Sixth army to stand at Stalingrad.

From the Publisher:

"We know what Adolf Hitler did but still puzzle over why. Dr. George Victor comes as close to providing the answer as we are ever likely to get in this penetrating psychological profile of the Nazi demigod." -- Joseph E. Persico, author of Nuremburg and Piercing the Reich

"Hitler: The Pathology of Evil is a serious book that merits serious consideration. George Victor's interpretations of Hitler's puzzling wartime decisions, for example, are unique." -- Eugene Davidson, author of The Unmaking of Adolf Hitler

"The research . . . is thorough, the analysis is deep, and the resluts are of compelling interest . . . . Victor has drawn on child development, experimental and social psychology, psychoanalysis, sociology, and anthropology. His blending of these social sciences with history is masterly, resulting in a deeper penetration than any work I know." -- John Laffin, author of Hitler Warned Us: The Nazi's Plan for a Master Race

"Highly recommended." -- Choice
