Hitler: Ascent Volker Ullrich

Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939 by Volker Ullrich is a well-researched and well-written biography.

Ullrich’s task of bringing this to life is challenging for one reason: Hitler is not interesting. There’s almost nothing about Hitler the person that’s compelling.

Orwell wrote that Hitler was a “criminal lunatic.” That’s the consistent theme of this book and Hitler never diverts from being a criminal lunatic. And not even an interesting lunatic.

However, this is a detailed and fascinating portrait of Hitler’s rise to power.
