Explore the rise of Adolf Hitler.
Was Hitler, as Ian Kershaw asked, a natural consequence of German history, or an aberration? Not that Hitler had been in hiding, waiting to attack. The Führer had actually been following an aggressive and savage foreign policy for almost 10 years, and been named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1938.
This is not an audiobook about World War II, but about the man, Adolf Hitler, one of the faces and names that still arouse the strongest feelings - repulsion, resentment, and even fanaticism - but one who also had a childhood and a youth, a father and a mother. It is the road to madness - beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ordered allegiance and loyalty to him alone - that this book is about.
Some of the topics covered in this audiobook include:

Hitler's origins
His inception
The anti-Semitic capital of Europe
First World War
Hitler's ascension
Mein Kampf
His downfall
The remains of Adolf Hitler
And a great deal more that you don't want to miss out on!

It was a great deal

Any additional comments?

This book was exactly what I was after, a nonin-depth review of the subject matter. Very educational and I've definitely learned some new things. I will absolutely be listening to more by this author. Such a great idea these hourly history books, keep up the good work
