Hitlerís War

By: Edwin P. Hoyt (580.16/36108)
Publisher: Robert Haled. London
From the John Laffin Library

Unlike other histories and biographies on the subject, Hitlerís War vividly recreates the events of World War Two as seen through Hitlerís eyes.

Hoyt freshly analyses Hitlerís political career, exposing his psychological make-up and his relationship with those around him. And, slipping behind enemy lines, he points out the strengths and weaknesses of Hitlerís military strategies.

Following Hitlerís rise from demagogue to dictator, the author probes the roots of the Fuhrerís anti-Semitism and anti-communism, and shows how these obsessions ultimately undermined his power.

Hitlerís crucial miscalculations in his campaigns to overrun the West are highlighted and the Alliesí idealistic pursuit of an unconditional surrender is called into question.

Fast-paced and controversial, Hitlerís War is a skilful rendering of a critical period of military history and a striking new portrait of the man who dominated the era.
