About the Author

Adolf Hitler (geboren am 20. April 1889 in Braunau am Inn, Österreich-Ungarn, gestorben am 30. April 1945 in Berlin). Er war von 1933 bis 1945 Diktator des Deutschen Reiches. Am 30. April 1945 verteilte er Giftampullen mit Zyankali oder Blausäure an seine Begleiter und erlaubte ihnen private Ausbruchsversuche. Die Wirkung des Gifts ließ er vorher an seiner Schäferhündin erproben, ohne dabei anwesend zu sein. Etwa um 15:30 Uhr schluckte Eva Braun Gift; Adolf Hitler erschoss sich.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"For years, Mein Kampf stood as proof of the blindness and complacency of the world. In its pages Hitler announced—long before he came to power—a program of blood and terror in a self-revelation of such overwhelming frankness that few had the courage to believe it...That such a man could go so far toward realizing his ambitions—that is a phenomenon the world will ponder for centuries to come."—Konrad Heiden, author of Der Fuhrer: Hitler's Rise to Power

Citizens and voters become accustomed to hearing statements from politicians that are taken seriously only to the point where the election takes place. Even the most unusual or disturbing comments are passed off as political rhetoric, to be taken seriously only as a ploy to improve the chances of winning the election. If the politician wins the election, we then expect the duty and responsibility of the office to temper their actions down into a more reasonable and realistic configuration. If they lose the election, the citizenry largely ignores them. Ironically and unfortunately, this was the expectation but not the reality of the political career of Adolph Hitler. In this book, originally published in 1925, Hitler made it quite clear that he had a deep hatred of Jews and would not hesitate to launch Germany on a war quest to conquer additional territory and enslave the "inferior" races currently occupying the territory. However, whether out of fear or delusion, most of the German people and other inhabitants of Europe did not take Hitler's ranting, as expressed in this book, seriously. It is often lost to history that Hitler was legally named Chancellor of Germany at a point when his electoral fortunes were fading. Many of the political power brokers in Germany felt that Hitler could be moderated and controlled once he took the responsibility of the Chancellorship of Germany. This book is one of the most chilling and factual cases of "hiding in plain sight", as Hitler is so very explicit about his aims and yet few paid attention. If you have any interest in how Germany launched a war of conquest and genocide, then this is a book that you must read. In my opinion, it should be required reading in all political science programs. It is a stark reminder that an informed citizenry must pay attention to what politicians say, for while it is only rarely true, sometimes it is devastatingly so.

The guy was a nutter, however much of what he says one can see in the world today. No I am not speaking of the racial nonsense. This is foolish and so clearly in error that it isn't funny. However if you replace race with culture, and look at it from that point of view. Much of what he says is very applicable to today and what is going on right now. One should never forget the past, learn from it and move on.

I was reading the paper back version but it sadly fell apart... I am in 8th grade. I had been talking to my social studies teacher and he believes that we should learn from the past but he believes that this is an EVIL book and that i should not read it. I am not saying that Hitler was not crazy or that this book is not evil, because both are true, but Hitler was also an amazing speaker....... To be able to tell nations that jews should die and make them beileve it is true, that is slightly amazing... Not that it is right. One of the reasons WW2 happened was because europe ignored things like these.

I have read a review that said that this book helpd her look for what not to want in a politician but he was the best there ever was. There was a reason he came to power. He knew when to start his campaign again and don't be mistaken, he did fail a coiple times. He knew to " attack" and ut was when his country fell into hard economic times such as our "Great Depression" was for us. And another point yes he was human. But as little as is possible. He was ruthless on his quest for perfection but then they call him a prime example of pure evil but that is not quite a full truth. Yes I know I kind of countering my own point of view but I have multiple opinions about this conflicting man. He had more respect for architects than he had for his loyal officers. He had tried multiple times to pursue a career in the arts but was rejected. He is human and he has felt rejection and that has made deep and penetrating roots of hatred and loathing for a society tht had thrown him out onto the street worth as much as any rat. Although now having had just said that I will also stand by the fact that he barely had a heart to hold anytjing cloae to. His mistress Eva Braun had been disregarded but obviously something abiut this man made her stay. She must have recognised the demons un his eyes iland his soul but his power made her stay. His power and almost demonic nature caused a past lover, his neice, to take her own life because her inly chance to free herself was to go into God's accepting arms. What does this say about the man who willingly and knowingly sent mostly innocent people to their deaths? What do you think when you remember you grandparents who may have survived the horrid Holocaust and their memories that may still haunt them at niht and the regular life that has been ripped away from them. I am 12 years old. My name is Jenna Vieux and I just want my voice heard. I am just doing it in a way Hitler did not have a chance to and I dl not want to do what he did. I want to be thought of with respect. And if you could reply that would be great. Thanks guys.

This is one of the books I had on my own "bucket list". It is a remarkable historical book. I find it almost incredible that anyone who read it in the 1920s (and millions did) could not see exactly what he would do when he gained power. Some of his words will raise your blood pressure, and he repeats himself terribly, but I am glad I read it.

A good insight and personal opinion of Hitler, before the evil man people know him for came to be.

Im only on page 48 and I'm already lost in it... history buffs this is a must read! a total look to the inside of Hitler's mindset

Hitler was without a doubt the most evil man alive in his time. While reading his rantings you can see the depth of his insanity and the building strength of his hatred. It's difficult to read and accept the intensity of the vile filth in his mind. Mein Kampf is a good study for criminal justice students when trying to grasp the criminal mind but also for psyc students.

We read this book in my Holocaust class in college. At first some of us were a little creeped out by reading the words of Adolf Hitler, but it became very interesting to learn about his warped view of the world. It was clear that he was a dangerous person long before World War II. He had traits of a psychopath early on. But his book is not all vitriol by any means. He does show that he was an educated person, and he could write down his ideas in a catchy way, which was very evident later in his life when he gave speeches that electrified German crowds. He was indeed a madman, but he wasn't dumb, at least not on a booksmarts level. It really is fascinating reading. It definitely left me with a list of traits to avoid in any politician that I ever vote for.

Great book

Although tedious, difficult to read, & often offensive, this book, a product of one of the greatest persuaders of all time, should be read by all of us; especially in light of the similar use of hate, fear, intolerance, & ignorance by the demogogues of our time.

Even tho he rambles much of what he had to say realy does reflect the sentiment of his day,Hitler was one of the few men who actualy openly stated his beliefs before hand...and many agreed with him,not just germans,but many many peoples ...henry ford was a major supporter and walt Disney as well,before ww2 started the Nazi movement in America was expanding rapidly...if ww2 hadn't happened we would be a Nazi nation as well......if u want to enter the mind of the times....this book reflects the ugly truths that mankind realy is a sick race....I found this book very enlightening,on how easy it was to stir up millions in a fervor with so little proofs or facts.....

Interesting insight into what prompted this man to do that which he thought was best for Germany. Not always does the end justify the means it would seem. What a terrible time he brought upon the world blaming the Jews as the principle cause of Germany's downward trend in their relationship with the rest of the European nations.
