The life and death of Adolf Hitler

Giblin, James.

New York : Clarion Books, c2002.

246 p. : ill., maps ; 26 cm.

2003 Sibert Medal Winner

Many people believe Hitler was the personification of evil. In this Sibert Medal-winning biography, James Cross Giblin penetrates this fa├žade and presents a picture of a complex person--at once a brilliant, influential politician and a deeply disturbed man.

In a straightforward and nonsensational manner, the author explores the forces that shaped the man as well as the social conditions that furthered his rapid rise to power. Against a background of crucial historical events, Giblin traces the arc of Hitler's life from 1889 to 1945: his childhood, his years as a frustrated artist in Vienna, his extraordinary rise as dictator of Germany, his final days in an embattled bunker under Berlin. Powerful archival images provide a haunting visual accompaniment to this clear and compelling account of a life that left an ineradicable mark on our world. Author's note, bibliography, index.
