Description

'Magisterial ...... anyone who wishes to understand the Third Reich must read Kershaw, for no one has done more to lay bare Hitler's morbid psyche' Niall Ferguson, Sunday Telegraph 'The definitive biography of the Fuhrer' Juliet Gardiner, Sunday Times Ian Kershaw's two-volume biography of Hitler was greeted with universal acclaim as the essential work on one of the most malign figures in history. Now this landmark biography is available in one single, abridged edition, tracing the story of how a bitter, failed art student from an obscure corner of Austria rose to unparalleled power and destroyed the lives of millions. 'For the present generation, Kershaw's Hitler stands out as a clear beacon of truth, illuminating a dark age of terror and mendacity' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday 'Supersedes all previous accounts. It is the sort of masterly biography that only a first-rate historian can write' David Cannadine, Observer 'An achievement of the very highest order' Michael Burleigh, Financial Times 'The Hitler biography for the twenty-first century' Richard Evans, Sunday Telegraph 'Mesmerizing . . . presents the twentieth century's most controversial life in a single sweep' Michael Kerrigan, Scotsman
