Reviews

"Everyone concerned about democracy should read this book." -- Richard J. Evans * The Nation *
"A superb biography of the Fuhrer's pre-war years... It is a tribute to Ullrich's absorbing biography that one contemplates its second volume with a shudder." -- Miranda Seymour * Daily Telegraph *
"[A] fascinating Shakespearean parable about how the confluence of circumstances, chance, a ruthless individual and the wilful blindness of others can transform a country." -- Michiko Kakutani * New York Times *
"A substantial addition to the Fuhrer canon." -- David Aaronovitch * The Times, Book of the Year *
"Where Ullrich adds greatly to our understanding is by making the mercurial, changeable and...profoundly unknowable Hitler believable... This is a major achievement... Impressive and revealing biography." -- Nicholas Stargardt * Literary Review *
