Michael FitzGerald has an honors degree in philosophy, including political philosophy, and is the author of a work on psychic warfare in World War II, which has been described as "racy and readable," "extremely well-researched," "the standard work on the subject," and "a classic in the field." He has made a lifetime study of Hitler and German history between 1918 to 1945 and has given numerous talks to a variety of organizations.
There have been dozens of biographies on Adolph Hitler. Not surprising in view of his impact on Europe and the world in the early decades of the 20th century. Michael FitzGerald's biography differs from the others in several significant ways. Readers are presented with a portrait of Hitler that arising from the influence of Western European art, architecture and culture on his 'world view'. FitzGerald reveals that Hitler was the first European leader to adopt radical economic policies which were primarily responsible for bringing Germany out of the disastrous recession and runaway inflation brought about by the draconian provisions forced upon the nation by the victorious Allies after World War I. It will come as a surprise to most readers that Hitler was also the first world leader to adopt 'green' policies for his countries natural environment. An impressively researched, deftly written, and confidently recommended biography, "Adolph Hitler: A Portrait" also reveals the origins of Hitler's anti-Semitism and the very curious and unexpected phenomena of high-ranking anti-Semitic Jews within the Nazi Party.
