Publisher's Summary

Dietrich von Hildebrand was a German-Catholic thinker and teacher who, in response to the rise of Nazism, devoted the full force of his intellect to doing public battle with Hitler for the hearts and minds of the German people.

In My Battle Against Hitler, von Hildebrand tells of the scorn and ridicule he endured for sounding the alarm when many still viewed Hitler as a positive and inevitable force. He tells how he defiantly challenged Nazism in the public square, prompting the German ambassador in Vienna to describe him to Hitler as "the architect of the intellectual resistance." And throughout it all, he conveys his unwavering trust in God, even during his harrowing escape from Vienna and his desperate flight across Europe, with the Nazis always just one step behind.

    "amazing book what in site I loved every second."

    A great presentation. I listened to it twice back to back. I fear for our nation. There are so many similarities in the direction America going. I feel this book was written as a warning for our time.

    "Wonderful!!"
    Would you listen to My Battle Against Hitler again? Why?

    Yes. In fact I have listened to several sections twice already. There is so much content that one listen is not enough to truly absorb it all.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ..well, Von Hildebrand of course


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found myself really pondering my values and asking if I believe in them enough to hold fast to them no matter the cost.

    Story
    "Prophetic"

    D. Van hildebrand was a philosopher and a catholic. His warnings about Hitler and his regime began in the 1920s and 30s, he recognized the nature of the threat and vigorously spoke out against the inevitable outcome of Naziism. His well articulated philosophy and his ability to see what was coming is both eerie and enlightening. His chronicle of Hitler's rise to power is unique in that he saw and warned humanity about the inevitable consequences of what he called 'nationalist socialism'. His understanding of the decadence and blindness that allowed Hitler to come to power has a lot to teach us today.
