Now available in a single, abridged paperback, Ian Kershaw's Hitler
is the definitive biography of the Nazi leader. Ian Kershaw's two
volume biography, Hitler 1889-1936: Hubris and Hitler 1936-1945:
Nemesis, was greeted with universal acclaim as the essential work
on one of the most malign figures in history, from his earliest
origins to the final days of the Second World War. Now this
landmark historical work 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, destroying
the lives of millions and bringing the world to the brink of
Armageddon. 'Supersedes all previous accounts. It is the sort of
masterly biography that only a first-rate historian can write'
David Cannadine, Observer 'The Hitler biography for the
twenty-first century' Richard Evans, Sunday Telegraph 'I cannot
imagine a better biography of this great tyrant emerging for a long
while' Jeremy Paxman '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 'For the present generation, Kershaw's Hitler stands out
as a clear beacon of truth, illuminating a dark age of terror and
mendacity' Mail on Sund 'An achievement of the very highest order'
