Synopsis

Adolph Hitler's life divides into five major categories: his life as a young man, his experiences in World War 1, the gaining of ultimate power, the gambles he took on a possible war, and his final defeat. As a young man he consistently chose to fight one of his parents, to reject the educational system, to live isolated from others as much as possible, never to love anyone again because of a death in the family, and finally to live as a homeless street person for four years. His experiences in World War 1gave him the opportunity to view war as the greatest of all human achievements and a necessary experience which all humans should go through. On his way to gaining ultimate power in Germany he practiced turning likely defeats into victory. His secret of dealing with seeming defeats was to never yield an inch to his enemies at any point. When facing a choice between comradeship and power he chose power. Hitler was a gambler. He gambled on war when he marched into the Rhineland, into Austria and into Czechoslovakia. Each time his gamble paid off. He took the chance again in Poland and the West, but miscalculated. However, he did get to shed blood, which he felt was his calling and destiny. Adolf Hitler had two goals, which led to his final defeat: the destruction of Communism and the annihilation of the Jews. His greatest risk was the invasion of the Soviet Union. His unyielding personality and unwillingness to admit a mistake caused him to make major military blunders such as Stalingrad and the Normandy Invasion. Unable to defeat the Communist he concluded that the Jews must be destroyed at all costs even if it meant losing the war. Hitler ended as a suicide in his underground bunker in Berlin. His last year was spent as a physical wreck, feeling extreme self-pity, and blaming others for his mistakes. In his last few days he married the person closest to him, his mistress, Eva Braun. He gave instructions to a close adjutant to destroy all his papers. This book is a supposed account of what his life was like in his own writings: how he became the man he was!
