Hitler: a Biography
Hitler: a Biography
By Konrad Heiden
Knopf, 1936, 415 pp

The author is already well-known for his excellent "History of National Socialism." As Munich correspondent of the Frankfurter Zeitung for many years he had unusual opportunities to observe the growth of the Nazi movement and to study Hitler's tactics. The present volume is one of the most instructive biographies of the Führer that has yet been written, not only because of the wealth of the factual material presented, but also because of the author's philosophic grasp.
