Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler
by Katie Daynes
juvenile biography
64 pages
Tulsa, OK : EDC, 2006

Adolf Hitler was a fascinating and charismatic leader. I have never bothered to read a biography about this man just because I feel I already know the worst about him. Yet when presented with this short, illustrated volume, I thought I would take the opportunity to learn a little more about what made Hitler tick. After reading it, I still think he was insane. I will never understand how so many people followed a dark-haired man who was promoting blond-haired, blue-eyed people as the perfect race. A great introduction for younger readers needing an historical biography.
