In This Review

The author was once political editor of the Berliner Tageblatt, and is now in exile. In this book he seeks to interpret Hitler's character and actions in the light of his early environment in Austria. Being fundamentally a psychological study, it is somewhat weak on the general political and social background of National Socialism. In so far as there is a thesis, it is that Hitler has always been the tool of the Reichswehr.
