Editorial Reviews

Review


"An essential volume for anyone wanting to build up a picture of this atrocious man..." -- Simon Heffer, The Daily Telegraph


"... a real biography by a genuine specialist ..." -- Richard J Evans, The Guardian


"... a comprehensive and impressive work. I am happy to say that Hitler: A Life is a very good book, fluently translated by Jeremy Noakes and Lesley Sharpe. It is comprehensive on the domestic side of the story, and it draws on the newer literature of the past two decades ... Longerich's work is much more than a synthesis... The result is a fine-grained and generally persuasive account of Hitler's rise to power..." -- Brendan Simms, Irish Times


"Here once again [Longerich] mobilises a formidable quantity of archival material and shows us Hitler in his true colours ... [A] detailed biography." -- Richard Overy, Literary Review


"Longerich's meticulous account touches on many issues..." -- Christopher Clark, London Review of Books


"... demonstrates a mastery of a vast mass of primary and secondary research... that is remarkable even for a German professor ... Longerich is uniquely equipped to explore the enigma of a Fuhrer who manipulated and ultimately ruined not on his lieutenants but an entire continent..." -- Daniel Johnson, Standpoint


"Essential reading." -- Christopher Bray, The Tablet


"Throughout, the author wears his impeccable scholarship lightly, creating a fresh picture of one of history's most written-about subjects. A Hitler biography unlikely to be surpassed for quite some time."--Kirkus, Starred Review


"Despite its length, Longerich's book is no ornamental 'door stopper;' it is, rather, an 'eye opener' that sets this book apart from those of many other Hitler biographers."
--Reform Judaism


"A chilling but masterful portrait."--Booklist, Starred Review



"Longerich brings distinctive perspectives to the subject, offering compelling insights... A worthwhile and thought-provoking assessment of Hitler's life and times, in the process providing a stark reminder of the consequences of the politics of hate."
--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


"While Longerich agrees that Hitler was an inept administrator, he convincingly argues that the administrative upheaval was a function, not a glitch, of the system, enabling Hitler to act as arbiter of policy conflicts and to insert himself forcefully into policy decisions... Readers and scholars of 20th-century history will welcome this [biography]."--Library Journal


"The English-language translation [of Hitler], a herculean feat accomplished by Jeremy Noakes and Lesley Sharpe, never flags, always smartly conveying Longerich's peculiarly magisterial readability... This is [one of] the most impressive translated biograph[ies] of the year."--Christian Science Monitor


"A fantastic look at how the f�hrer became the embodiment of the Nazis and the terrors of World War II. For historians or history buffs, this new and comprehensive biography is a must-read."--Bowling Green Daily News


"Hitler is surely the benchmark against which all scholarship on the subject of Nazi Germany, past or future, will be measured."--Jewish Journal


"A fascinating and at times brilliantly written read."--National Review


About the Author


Peter Longerich is Professor of Modern German History at Royal Holloway University of London and founder of the College's Holocaust Research Centre. An internationally renowned authority on the Nazis, he has published widely on the history of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, including Holocaust: The Nazi Murder and Persecution of the Jews (2010), which is widely recognized as the standard account of the Nazi machinery of mass murder and the steps by which it unfolded, and Himmler (2011), described by the London Review of Books as "one of the landmark Nazi biographies."
