Overview

The harsh Armistice terms of 1918, the short-lived Weimar Republic, Hindenburg's senile vacillations, and behind-the-scene power plays form the backbone of this excellent study covering German history during the first three-and-a-half decades of the century.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Author and historian Eugene Davidson, in The Making of Adolf Hitler, has produced a quality work--a rare gem which contrasts sharply with today's often superficial standards."--Washington Star

"The harsh Armistice terms of 1918, the short-lived Weimar Republic, Hindenburg's senile vacillations, and behind-the-scene power plays form the backbone of this excellent study covering German history during the first three-and-a-half decades of the century."--Booklist

"Davidson clarifies the complex political conflicts in an absorbing narrative enriched by 53 photos."--Publishers Weekly

"Davidson invests the by now more or less familiar story of the Nazis' successful application of rant and violence to German politics with new interest by the technique of taking a few incidents and explaining them in detail, while taking the general flow of history as read."--Economist

"An intricate and deeply felt examination of Germany in the three decades before the Nazi takeover."--Kirkus Reviews
