Germany's Adolf Hitler was, without argument, a monster. He unleashed the horrors of World War II and ordered the murder of millions in his quest to create his twisted version of a pure German empire.
In this, the first of a two-volume biography of "der Führer," New York Times bestselling author Donna Faulkner explores Hitler's rise to power - as well as the twisted roots of his genocidal brutality. His story is one of dysfunction and megalomania: from Hitler's early days as a frustrated schoolboy and artist to a power-hungry, and masterful, politician who manipulated the German people wracked by economic deprivation.
Nearly three-quarters of a century later, the world is still grappling with the horrific legacy of Adolf Hitler. Here's how it all began.

Interesting to understand the times and people on how a ruthless individual could rise to such power
I enjoyed this book and was enlightened by the facts that were presented. I hadn't known the details of the steps Hitler had to go through to become the horrendous human who sent so many people to concentration camps and felt he had been born to become "The Fuhrer".
