The one person at whose feet the blame for both the Holocaust and World War II can be laid is Adolf Hitler. Readers will learn how Hitler rose to power and the horrific ways that he made use of that power once he had accumulated it. This biography discusses Hitler's role in the so-called Final Solution and also touches on the impact Hitler still has today. It offers a wealth of detail about the various stages of the Führer's life and examines the influence he had on both those in his inner circle and the German public at large. Understanding a despicable person may not be inspiring, but that does not mean it's not worthwhile.
