Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives
Lewis Smith's review
Mar 02, 2015
I read this book when it first came out over 20 years ago, and last school year I picked it up and started over again. While it is a bit dated, this is the only serious work to ever lay the lives of history's two most deadly dictators side by side. While Bullock's style is a bit dry in places, the scope of his scholarship is truly impressive. There are some golden quotes in this book, not just about Hitler and Stalin, but about the similarities and differences between Nazism and Communism. Overall, if one has the patience for a 900 page read, this is one of the most comprehensive looks at these two men ever undertaken.
