The Young Hitler I Knew
The Young Hitler I Knew
By August Kubizek
Houghton, 1955, 298 pp
Purchase

Personal and relatively intimate recollections of the adolescent Hitler during the years 1904 to 1908. While filling in a gap in the biography, the book is perhaps of most interest in what was not really revealed at that time--the demonic drive of Hitler's later career. (A translation of "Adolf Hitler, Mein Jugendfreund," Graz: Stocker, 1953, 352 p.)
