About this book
The author of the acclaimed two volume biography, "Hitler: 1889-1936" and "Hitler: 1936-1945", charts the creation and growth of the personality cult that was a vital element in the attainment of Nazi political aims.
This study of the myth that sustained one of the most notorious dictators, delves into Hitler's powerful hold over the German people. In this work, Ian Kershaw argues that it lay not so much in Hitler's personality or his bizarre Nazi ideology, as in the social and political values of the people.
