This book was all about the life of Adolf Hitler, and how he rose to power, and in an instant lost it all. I enjoyed this book allot and could not put is down. This is the story from my point of veiw. The first part starts off by telling the reader about Hitler’s upbringing. How he did not want to be like his father, the customs worker. Also how he thought that his teachers were not educated enough to teach him in school. How he quit school and, tried to prisue his dream of becoming an artist.
He was not accepted into the Vienna art school and then became a bum. In the second part of the book the author tells of Hitler’s start into politics and The Beer Hall Putsch. How he came into the political party so suddenly, and also how he became Chancellor. This author tells of the brut tactics that Hitler used against all of the opposing parties, and finally became dictator or the Fuhrer. The book also tells about while he was gaining all of this power he fell in love with a woman. This woman was his niece. Her name was Geli.
He spent all of his free time with her, but when she said that she was running off to Vienna to study voice studies. He had her killed. The third part of the book is all about Hitlers conquest of Europe. This was the only part of the book that disapointed me, because it did not really go into the fact that Hitler killed over 5,000,000 people of jewish descent. I guess that this proves that the author was not jewish and was not really dissturbed by the fact that this happened. The fourth slice of the pie was all about Hitlers fall hence the name “The Rise AND FALL of Aldolf Hitler. It starts off by telling of Hitlers first big mistake in the war, which from the authors point of veiw was when the Fuhrer ( Hitler) declaired war aginst the united states. This was a bad mov on his behalf because he now not only had the great power of Russia to look out for but also the power of the United States. Then the author goes into how Hitler was trapped in his bunker at the end of the warand how he and his new love, who was named Eva Braun got merried. Then the author tells how Hitler said his last words and then killed himself and his new bride did the same.
This book was written in 1961 which meens that the hatred of hitler in the united states was still fresh. I know this because I have asked other peoplr who were in WWII about this, but for some strange reason the author who wrote this book did not seem this way. It might of been becaues the author did not want to have any bias aginst Hitler, so that the reader could read the book and not be offened in any way. Either way I liked this book and I recommend it to the reader of this essay.
