Hitler's Mein Kampf - The Roots of Evil

This is the fascinating account of how the violent events which befell Hitler between 1889 and 1924 influenced his personal life and formed the basis for his of his Weltenschaaung as set out in the pages of Mein Kampf. Drawing extensively on Hitler's own biographical account from Mein Kampf coupled with a wide range of primary sources, Emmy award winning author and historian Bob Carruthers illustrates how a series of violent events transformed Hitler's view of the world and led directly to the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923.

Hitler's difficult relationship with his violent father, his harsh experiences in Vienna and his involvement in the Great War conditioned Hitler to celebrate aggressive acts. By Hitler's own account, his love of violence and complete disregard for the consequences of his actions was vindicated by a series of victories in fierce encounters involving beer hall brawls and street battles. Each successive triumph over adversity influenced his decision making process and culminated in the ill-fated events of November 1924 which saw Hitler imprisoned for the second time. The parallel growth of the SA from a small group of fist fighters to a feared paramilitary force is also covered in detail along with a comprehensive survey of the brutal events between 1920 and 1924 which shaped this infamous political instrument of terror.

This remarkable work is appearing as an ebook for the first time and is essential reading for anyone interested in the roots of National Socialism from the ultimate primary source.
