    Hailed as the most compelling biography of the German dictator yet written, Ian Kershaw's Hitler brings us closer than ever before to the heart of its subject's immense darkness. From his illegitimate birth in a small Austrian village to his fiery death in a bunker under the Reich chancellery in Berlin, Adolf Hitler left a murky trail, strewn with contradictory tales and overgrown with self-created myths. One truth prevails: the sheer scale of the evils that he unleashed on the world has made him a demonic figure without equal in the 20th century.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hitler to be better than the print version?

    43 hours...yes...43 hours. Took me 2 months of 30 minute commutes to finish this doozy. Was a good, detailed history of how Hitler came to power and how he really should have been the joke of town who died reading Soldier of Fortune magazine, while talking about what he 'should have done'.

    My biggest issue with the book is that you need to know some of the setup for Germany's government or you'll wonder what the auther is talking about. Google was my friend. Many central elements in the book (things like 'the reichstag', 'Wehrmacht' or even why they called it the 3rd Reich (what was a 'reich')) are never covered, so you're on your own to understand whats going on when you get to those parts.

    Overall, a good book. BIG (and trimmed from the first version), but worth the time. Just wish more time had been spent on the setup and less time repeating why he hated the Jews or that people were 'working toward the Fuhrer'.
