This fascinating and richly detailed new biography of Hitler reinterprets the known facts about the Nazi Fuehrer to construct a convincing, realistic portrait of the man. In place of the hollow shell others have made into an icon of evil, the author sees a complex, nuanced personality. Without in any way glorifying its subject, this unique revision of the historical Hitler brings us closer to understanding a pivotal personality of the twentieth century.

About the Author
By R.H.S. Stolfi was Professor of Modern European History at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. With the distinguished German military writer, Frederick William von Mellenthin, he co-authored "NATO Under Attack."

Praise For Hitler

"This is no neo-Nazi apologia for the horrors of the Third Reich. It is an earnest effort to interpret Hitler’s personal evolution and place his actions within his personal and political context. . . . In trying to fathom the ‘real’ Hitler, Stolfi may be on a fool’s errand, but this provocative work is at least worthy of discussion."
