A superb performance with excellent pronunciation of the many technical terms and titles. A feat of endurance to listen to, given the content, but well worth sticking with it.

A masterful piece of work that recounts how a failed and insignificant artist from Austria could come to power and lead a civilised country to war and encourage many to plummet the depths of inhumanity. Using a range of evidence from historical events and recounts of eyewitnesses the text flowed and keep me engrossed from start to finish.
I find the narrator was excellent and kept my attention throughout.

This book refrains from providing a commentary on what happened but rather only reports what happened.
It doesn’t mentions the sociopolitical reasons adequately as to what led to the monster’s rise.
However the chronology is fantastic, detailed and I don’t believe one needs to read any other book after this to know further about the madness called Hitler, the person.
Authoritative and measured, Ian Kershaw recounts the arc of Hitler's life in a way that is accessible to observers of history. I have listened to the book three times -- it is fairly dense and I struggled at times to keep track of unfamiliar German names -- and each time it has been more enlightening. No doubt I will listen to it again.
