تکرار مکررات، کتاب گویی خلاصه ای از فصول اولیه ظهور و سقوط رایش سوم بدون اشاره به آن بود، این کتاب نیز مانند ظهور و سقوط از یکسویه نگریستن رنج میبرد و حتی هیچ تلاشی برای رعایت انصاف نیز ننموده است
نمره واقعی صفر

Adolf Hitler Director of the Nazi’s Book Review 11-16-13
This is a book about Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was the Chancellor of Germany, a politician and the leader of the Nazi party. He caused the Holocaust and most parts of WWII. The book tells about Hitler’s life. It was in chronological order starting when he was a baby until he died.
He grew up in Braunau, Australia. When Hitler was 18, he attempted to be an artist, but was criticized and couldn’t get into painting school, which made him ve

I chose this book because in the past i thoroughly enjoyed studying about Adolf Hitler and his life, the stuff that he did to work his way up to be head of the Nazi community.
I think reading this book was not a waste of time even though i particularly liked reading this book.
Even though people hated his life and i did as well he was a very interesting man to read about, all his achievements he made to work his way up and all of the plans he must of made to be like he was.
This book was very inter

In April 20, 1889 Adolf Hitler has joined the German world. Adolf Hitler grew up with anger as a baby. Adolf's parents didn't care about him and so Hitler started doing things without their help. His mother was pregnant with Adolf when she wasn't married but five years later she married someone named George Hiedler. "Five years later, Maria married a man named Georg Hiedler" (Haugen 17). In conclusion, Hitler's childhood wasn't easy at the time.

Adolf's mother died in 1949. After his mothers deat

This is infortmative and if you are a huge history fan like I am it will be good with the pictures of battle plans movements and other things of importance to WW2 plus it gives some insight to how the war started ended and some poisons that the main generals used to evade capture with death. Not the best historical information and not the worse its one of the books that just adds to the Views Of Hitler in WW2

I learned from this book about Adolf Hitler and how he was mean. It was amazing because you can learn that you should not be mean like that. I learned that Adolf Hitler started World War II. During the story, you'll find out that Hitler went into hiding, then three days later, he was found and arrested and kept in jail for nine months. The best part was when Adolf Hitler was killed, because Hitler was mean.

With this book being a biography, it is filled with interesting facts about Adolf Hitler and him growing up to be the Dictator and Chancellor of Germany from 1934 to 1945 and all the interesting little in between facts about his art career and everything. I wouldn't recommend this book just because it is filled with facts, because someone can get tired of the book very quickly.

This is the second book written for young people that I have read in the past few days.

The first book was about a young boy who survived the Nazi Holocaust. This book is about Adolf Hitler, the one responsible for creating the Holocaust.

Although written at a level for kids, I have gained a lot of useful information and found this book to be absolutely fascinating.

What an informative look into the life of the man who provoked World War II and conquered most of Europe before his regime was defeated in 1945. Unfortunately, before he could be stopped, he destroyed millions of lives and left Germany divided. The book has many photos of Hitler and of the people he affected.

Chronological read about Adolf Hitler's life. Interesting how he came about and how he succeeded in 'taking over the world'. Nice quick and easy read. Loved it. And it interested me a lot.

Well i don't entirely agree with it. Truth is, it oversimplifies Hitler's figure, and gives him too much credit. In the end, it sticks to the traditional "big men" view of history.
