Informationen zum Autor Ian Kershaw Klappentext When the two volumes of Ian Kershaw's biography of Hitler, Hitler 1889-1936: Hubris and Hitler 1936-1945: Nemesis were published, they were immediately greeted around the world as the essential works on perhaps the most malign figure ever to hold power in modern Europe. In the face of considerable demand for such an edition, Kershaw has now created a single volume version. Zusammenfassung Now available in a single, abridged paperback, Ian Kershaw's Hitler is the definitive biography of the Nazi leader.
