Adolf Hitler: Die Jahre des Aufstiegs 1889 - 1939. by Volker Ullrich

By Volker Ullrich

Die neue große Hitler-Biographie für unsere Zeit

Wer conflict Hitler wirklich? Dem Zeithistoriker und Publizisten Volker Ullrich gelingt es eindrucksvoll, hinter der öffentlichen Figur des »Führers« den Menschen sichtbar zu machen: mit seinen gewinnenden und abstoßenden Zügen, seinen Begabungen und Talenten, seinen Komplexen und mörderischen Antriebskräften. Neben der neuesten Literatur hat der Autor auch bislang unbekanntes Archivmaterial ausgewertet. So kann er dem bisherigen Hitler-Bild wichtige Facetten hinzufügen, etwa was once Hitlers Privatleben, seine Beziehung zu Frauen und die Berghof-Gesellschaft betrifft. Von den Anfängen bis zum Höhepunkt seiner Macht 1939 vollzieht der erste Band den durchaus aufhaltsamen Aufstieg des Diktators nach. Eine glänzend erzählte Biographie, die Hitler nicht als Psychopathen zeigt, sondern als Meister der Verführung und Verstellung – und gerade dadurch die Abgründe seiner Persönlichkeit greifbar macht.

»Seine Beiträge zur deutschen Geschichte vor allem des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts verbinden eigene Forschung und kraftvolle Synthese auf glänzende Weise und erreichen dadurch ein großes Publikum.« Zur Verleihung der Ehrendoktorwürde der Universität Jena 2008 an Volker Ullrich

Hamilton's career is a remarkable parallel of Dizzy's.

Its object, besides recording the Hot Club's "house band" (the string quintet with Stephane Grappelli and Django Reinhardt), was to record U.
