Reader's Reviews[]


This biography of Hitler was very good. Despite it looking like a young children's book on the front, the actual text is reasonably detailed. The photographs are provide an excellent accompaniment to the book. Highly recommended for those who are interested in Hitler's personality.


I got this book out of the library because I wanted to know more about Adolf Hitler. I was really surprised at some of the things he did as a younger man – I didn't know he wanted to become an artist, for instance. I thought the book was really good and really interesting, as well.

Fairly clean, although the book does say that Hitler committed suicide, etc. But they are not described graphically.
