Even though he had some unaccurate facts, it was still a great book. I learned a lot from this book and I hope that other people who read this book learn as much as I did. I learned a great deal from this book.

This is a very well done history book, but Giblin needs to check his facts more closely. Ardennes is a forest north of the Maginot Line not 'Ardennes Mountains'(page 140). On page 141, Giblin states that 'The British had organized a flotilla of more than 900 vessels, ranging in size from tugboats to warships, and sent them across the English channel to rescue the beleaguered British', when if fact, many of the 'vessels' were personally owned boats capable of holding only a few persons. And also on page 142, Giblin states that the British escaped Dunkirk but there is no mention of several thousand French soldiers who also were evacuated. The author needs to check his facts.

A great deal of this biography focuses on the early years, events and forces that shaped the man and lead to his reign - from his childhood in Austria and youthful ambitions to his failures as an artist. Many pages are also devoted to a detailed look at his often-conflicting personality traits, personal beliefs and practices, shedding light - and continued mystery -- on the events that followed. Hitler's life was chilling enough, but just as frightening are author James Cross Giblin's final two chapters about Hitler' s death and virtual rebirth via the modern neo-Nazi movement. Editorially, Giblin takes a clear humanitarian stance, yet avoids the trap of preaching obvious anti-Nazi cliches. Instead, his final analysis presents a most sobering question: 'Could another Adolf Hitler rise to power.in a time of crisis?' Considering our current fragile and dangerous world, it's a haunting point of discussion.
