Of the political books available this election season a history of Hitler is sadly relevant. It's a door-stopper but easy reading because while Ullrich is not a historian he is a trained journalist. Having never read a Hitler biography before, this seemed to fit the bill for an introduction - it is focused on Hitler personally, no complicated thesis, meant for the average reader, up to date research without bias. There is little analysis, though the facts for the insightful reader feel relevant. Hitler has been analyzed more than any figure in history, Ullrich could have included more insights from other writers.

Like most people, I already knew something about Hitler's life from bits here and there. He seemed to start believing his own BS after about 1937 when he successfully occupied the demilitarized zone bordering France. He had traits often seen in brilliant people - contradictions, charisma, photographic memory, artistic sensibility, risk taking, leadership, fast reader - but was also deeply insecure and, well, a tyrannical genocidal dictator. He was a terrible dinner host, a kill joy, Eva Brown would let loose and party after he left the house. Many people around him were hesitant about going to war, the economy was improving. The lesson we learn from a Hitler biography is to be on the lookout for similar personalities using the same tactics and ideas and stop them while possible. There are a few who echo him today, but none as demonically talented. ( )

Very interesting, highly detailed, certainly recommended. The detail is fascinating following the steps AH took between 1923 and 1933; not to mention the immediate steps after Jan 1933. Thank goodness there is no current world leader anywhere near as frighteningly methodical and clever and evil. ( )

Disclaimer: I made it part way through this masterful work of history, but had to move onto other things. The author has assembled a spectacular argument that Hitler was neither a lazy shirker during the way or obviously psychopathic -- that's too easy a measure for a man who was deeply flawed but also uniquely able to exploit the moment for his murderous political ends. I'm a firm believer in the belief that you don't need to have an evil monster to do truly despicable things. Those creatures are in fact quite rare. Instead, Ullrich portrays a Hitler who found his purpose in war (World War I), then exploited the moment brilliantly to work his way to the Reichstag. One of the most fascinating stories comes early. His mother, who he adored, died of breast cancer. Her physician, Eduard Bloch, was diligent and caring, something Hitler appreciated. Bloch was also Jewish. At the time of her death in Linz, there's no record of Hitler's anti-semitism (though Ullrich makes it clear that this was a pretty common feeling among many at the time). Hitler made good on his promise to the doctor that he was grateful. Alone among the Jewish families of Linz, Bloch had explicit Gestapo protection and later fled Germany with his family in 1940. This story isn't used to soften Hitler at all -- but it does demonstrate the depth of Ullrich's research and the intricacy of this portrait. Much has been made of comparisons to Donald Trump and his increasingly terrifying recourse to racism, bigotry and antisemitism. What's clear to me is that Trump is nowhere near Hitler in the level of his self-control, intellect or determination. However, I'm not so sure about the people around Trump (like Breitbart's Steve Bannon). If the alt-right that survives what looks to be a historic GOP defeat in November, they will be looking for a more suitable standard-bearer. All of us who care about democracy need to remain on the alert -- the forces that Hitler harnessed to cause so much horror are still clearly with us. ( )

Wie was Hitler echt? Na Joachim Fest en Ian Kershaw doet Volker Ullrich in zijn tweedelige biografie een uiterst ambitieuze poging het grootste raadsel van de moderne geschiedenis te ontrafelen. Hij slaagt er wonderwel in een nieuw, verrassend portret van de mens achter de `Führer te tekenen. Daarbij worden nu eens álle facetten van zijn persoonlijkheid belicht: zijn afstotelijke, maar ook zijn aantrekkelijke kanten, zijn vriendschappen en relaties met vrouwen, zijn complexen en destructieve drijfveren, en de onmiskenbare gaven en talenten die zijn opmars mogelijk maakten.

Highly recommended. A very in-depth and carefully referenced and accurate view of Hitler's rise to power that led up to WWII. It would be nice to assume something like this will never happen again, but when looked at in detail, and knowing societies' penchant for hysteria and hero worship (or cu;t of personality worship), it seems entirely possible for it to happen again. It is worth noting that at no time did it appear that a majority supported Hitler (even though elections seemed to say so once he was in power), so it doesn't even take a majority to lead a country down such a dark path.

there is little here that is substantially new. However, Mr. Ullrich offers a fascinating Shakespearean parable about how the confluence of circumstance, chance, a ruthless individual and the willful blindness of others can transform a country — and, in Hitler’s case, lead to an unimaginable nightmare for the world.
 
Hitler cries out for explanation, and perhaps always will, because even when we know all the facts, his story remains incredible, unacceptable. How could so insignificant a man have become so potent a force for evil? How could the world have allowed it to happen? And always, the unspoken fear: Could it happen again?.... What is truly frightening, and monitory, in Ullrich’s book is not that a Hitler could exist, but that so many people seemed to be secretly waiting for him.

Introduction

« Ce type est une catastrophe ; ce n’est pas une raison pour trouver inintéressants son caractère et son destin. » Et c’est aussi pour cette raison que nul « n’est dispensé de se préoccuper de son triste personnage », écrivait Thomas Mann dans « Frère Hitler », un essai publié en 1939. [...]
Chapitre premier
LE JEUNE HITLER

« Je n’ai aucune idée de ce qu’est une histoire familiale. Dans ce domaine, je suis le plus limité des hommes », reconnaissait Hitler en août 1942 dans l’un de ses innombrables monologues tenus au Quartier général du Führer à la « Wolfsschanze » [« la tanière du Loup », surnom du QG de Hitler, situé en Prusse-Orientale (N.d.T.)].
