Madman, tyrant, animal- this is what history reserved for Adolf Hitler. But in real who was he? What was his life? What were his ideals and dreams? How he dealt with the frustrations? What influenced his decisions?
Adolf Hitler was born to impoverished parents in Austria. He was a talented painter and all he wanted was to become a great painter. But fate had something else in stores for him. The death of his parents followed by his rejections from art schools forced him to work as an underpaid labourer.
He was decorated for bravery for the first time during the First World War. Later he got involved with socialist political groups, he led invasions and got arrested and the rest is history.
Mein Kampf is widely considered as the blue print for Hitler’s political and military campaign. In this title Hitler describes his strategy for rebuilding Germany and conquering Europe.
It is translated to many languages. DC Books published its Malayalam Version under the same title. It was translated by Dr.T.S.Girish Kumar without losing the essence and power.
Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party (NSDAP), Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer (“leader”) of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. Hitler was a decorated veteran of World War I. He joined the precursor of the NSDAP, the German Workers’ Party, in 1919 and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923, he attempted a coup in Munich to seize power. The failed coup resulted in Hitler’s imprisonment, during which time he dictated his autobiography and political manifesto Mein Kampf (“My Struggle”). After his release in 1924, Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles
