Brilliant start but lacking towards the end
I thought the book was brilliant insofar as it provided insight into the mind of Adolf Hitler and the political climate of the time. However, the book provides an enormous amount of detail in respect of Hiler's rise to power but lacked the same amount of information on the period during the Second World War. In this regard the book is somewhat unbalanced, as I believe that this is actually what most readers would have been interested in. For example one would have liked to have known Hitler's personal experience of the holocaust or the war in North Africa but the book provides very little information on these subjects. Nevertheless Joachim Fest's detailed research and pleasant pace of writing makes this book beyond doubt a milestone for books on the Second World War.
