Stephen Thorne heads a cast of actors in this biography of Adolf Hitler, written by Steven Fuller, who traces Hitler's rise from a violent, stubborn youth to the despotic leader of the Third Reich. Thorne's crisp diction makes Fuller's portrait a thorough and reputable account of how a young man - grief-stricken over his mother's early death, frustrated with his failures as an artist, and obsessed with socialism at an early age - became the dynamic ideologue responsible for the Holocaust. Michael Burrell gives a harsh, bristling, and credible performance as Hitler, adding even more authenticity to this remarkable biography.
In this sometimes spine-chilling audio biography, the dark atmosphere of the age is superbly conveyed, with actor Michael Burrell giving a terrifyingly convincing interpretation of the demonic despot.
Hitler is played by Michael Burrell, with other parts played by Michael Kilgarrif and Michael Sheard.

PLOT: mini bio of Adolph Hitler
This hits the highlights of Hitlers life. Lacks details but gives a solid over all bio of the man and what influenced him. FAST listen. 3 STARS~ geared for students.
It was always going to be ambitious to do a dramatization of Hitler's life in an hour. i found this work less than comprehensive, the performances were poor and bland.
Stephen Fry - The Hippopotamus
Would be really cool to have a dramatized version of Fuhrer by Alan Prior.
