    I am a high school sophomore who had to do a research project. This book was very interesting. It made me want
    to keep reading and I am the type of student who does not like to read. It gave me a lot of good facts about World
    World ll, the Holocaust, and Hitler's background. It helped me a lot with my research project. It
    answered most of the questions that I needed to be answered. This book is very resourceful when doing a
    research project about the Hitler, the Holocaust, and World War ll. The author did a great job because Hitler is
    such a hard subject to talk about because of all the terrible things he did. Thus, the author knew that when things
    were getting too serious and sad to brighten things up and talk about a different topic. This book is very
    graphic book so I do suggest that high school students and up should read this book because at time it becomes
    inappropriate and as a sophomore student I even felt uncomfortable reading about Hitler's love life. Overall, I do
    recommend this book because it goes into a lot of detail but always keeps you wanting more.

    I Also Recommend:

    Concise, indeed!

    As a soon-to-be WWII/Holocaust historian, I was wanting to get a head start on my studying! I saw this book out of no where, the last copy at my store. I was really looking for Mien Kampf, but I "settled" for this because the backcover interested me. I did not know what I was getting myself into! This book will keep you wanting to read more and more. It is definitely concise to the brim. You learn things that you didn't want to know, but then again, it helps you understand how insane he truely was.

    I've had a few friends and even family come up to me and requesting to read it after I was done with it.

    This is a very good book to keep in your studying collection, also if you're a huge WWII fan. Hope this review helps! :D

    I am a high school sophomore and had to read this book for a res

    I am a high school sophomore and had to read this book for a research project.  I found this book to be a good read.  I personally do not enjoy reading, but the book kept me entertained.The author, Thomas Fuchs, did a splendid job of deeply describing Hitler.  The book kept my attention because it focuses on concepts rather than a chronological timeline of events Hitler faced.  The topics that were essential to Hitler’s life were explained very well.  I also like that the author gave Hitler some justice.  Yes of course, Hitler was an evil man, but there is a good side to everyone.  The author showed that side of Hitler and how he was a normal man, besides the fact that he killed so many people.  The book focuses on how he was as a person, not what he physically did.  What I enjoyed most in the book was reading about the thoughts of Hitler, especially his thoughts on the United States.  After reading this book, I had a better understanding of Hitler and his actions.  Overall, I recommend this book to anyone that is curious about Adolf Hitler.  The book is an easy read and keeps you wanting to know more about Hitler.

    I am a high school sophomore and had to read this book for a res

    I am a high school sophomore and had to read this book for a research project. I found this book to be very
    informative. Fuchs starts off by covering he little details about Hitler that I found to be very interesting. Some
    may think that the details are irrelevant however, I found that learning about Hitler's quirks made him seem more like
    a human being rather than a figure in a history book. I felt as though Fuchs went a little overboard on detail at
    times, when he could have covered the more important events of Hitler’s life instead of focusing so much on
    Hitter’s dog, for example. I found these facts to be interesting, however, the lack of detail in more important
    areas was quite frustrating. I would have liked to have more information on the war aspect, but reading the little
    facts that are not as well known was very interesting as well. I greatly enjoyed reading this book and exploring more
    into the mind of Adolf Hitler. Overall I highly recommend this book to anyone that needs or wants more information on Adolf Hitler.

    Answers every question you ever had about Adolf Hiter and some you never even thought of.

    Once the reader gets past the fact that Hitler's life is not given chronologically, it's an interesting book from the insight it gives into what Hannah Arendt called "the banality of evil." What a strange, selfish,and ultimately small person lies at the other end of such profound misery!

    A Consise Biography of Adolf Hitler

    I was very unsure of Adolf Hitlers reasons that he hated the Jews. This book was great and it answered all my questions. I even used it for my Book report at school.

    Great Book

    This book was great. I read it for school and it really held my attention. Hitler was fascinating in a sick way. I would recommend this book, and from me, that's a lot, because I dont like to read.
