Throughout his life, Hitler remained anti-establishment. Even when he became convinced that the Jews were behind both capitalism and Communism, he did not alter his other political views. People often forget that 'Nazi' was a nickname for 'National Socialist' and are unaware of how strongly socialist Hitler really was.
Historians have also consistently underestimated Hitler's vision of himself and his missions for Germany.
Believing that the Aryan race represented the highest form of humanity, Hitler was tormented by his inability to live up to his own ideals. His suspicion of Jewish blood in his family, and his failure to conform to the 'Aryan' physical type, haunted him. He found peace in the rapturous shouts of adoring crowds, though, as his country slid into defeat, his rage turned inwards, on his country and himself. FitzGerald shows us the man behind the mask, and explains how he came to be what he was.
