"Provides a valuable insight into the development of ideas that were to shape Hitler's foreign policy after 1933."-Jeremy Noakes, The Times Literary Supplement

"He envisaged the German people becoming involved in a series of wars for Lebens-raum culminating in an epic battle against America."-Michael Smith, Daily Telegraph

"The Second Book is in many ways more important than Mein Kampf."-Guardian

"I have never known anyone to say this is a forged document."-Volker Berghahn, The New York Times

"Hitler admires the 'young, racially select' American people and the nation's restrictive immigration policies at the time."-The New York Times

"Far more than Mein Kampf, the Second Book establishes the grandiose scale of Hitler's ambitions."-Dennis Showalter, Colorado College

"More clearly than ever, Hitler sketched out the worldwide struggle against the Jews which he and his party had to lead."-Richard Overy, Guardian
