The Unmaking of Adolf HitlerBook - 1996
A new contribution to the baffling history of Adolph Hitler seeking to explain how a foreign-born, uneducated, and marginal politician could reach such heights of power and inflict such devastation on the world. Davidson maintains that Hitler's ascent was due largely to Germany's economic and political malfunctioning and that the leader's ability to revive morale and outmaneuver opposition facilitated his rise. However, the ruthless character of the man also manifested itself in fateful errors of judgment that led to his destruction. The sequel to continues the author's careful scholarship and attention to detail. Includes photographs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
