A conventional account of Hitler's rise, we'll read but with some strange translation quirks.

Found the content very interesting with quite a few things I was unaware of.
However the narration is a little laboured and took some getting used to.
Would you consider the audio edition of Hitler to be better than the print version?
What did you like best about this story?
The IMMENSE amount of research that must have gone into this compelling book. Clearly the writer, and others before him, spent many, many MANY hours hunched over desks reading millions of words to get what was needed for this material. No detail, no matter how small, was left untold.
What does Don Hagen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I felt like I was sitting in the room with Hitler at times, listening to him scream and spit, berating those around him just for the joy of it, seeing his face turn different shades of red, wondering who wouldn't be in the room the next day because of some perceived slight that set him off so. A truly frightening yet fascinating monster of a man. To bring the story to that kind of life was compelling, which is what I always hope for, but don't always get, in biographies. This one delivered with change to spare. this one belongs in any history buff's library for sure.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"Like you've never seen or heard him before"

A different perspective on his early life and great detail on the pre WWI Vienna years that makes his experience clearer. The rise to power is described based on multiple firsthand sources and provides the reader a very clear view of the motives of the players. At least that's what I came away with. A very clear and realistic picture of the man.
