Richard J. Evans Reviews Volker Ullrich's, Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939

Last October I wrote, "I doubt we need a new Hitler biography at this point, but then, there's certainly a market for them."

Frankly, I wasn't so sure there was much new to be told about the life of Adoph Hitler, but I'm always open to persuasion.

So, while I'm not a fan of the Nation and rarely link it, this Richard J. Evans reveiw, of Volker Ullrich's new biography of Hitler, calls for an exception. See, "A Warning From History: A new biography of Hitler reminds us that there is more than one way to destroy a democracy."

It's good. RTWT.

And the Ullrich volume is here, at Amazon, Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939.
