    David Cannadine, Observer Books of the Year
  • The Hitler biography for the 21st century ... cool, judicious, factually reliable and intelligently argued ... Kershaw triumphantly succeeds in showing that Hitler's rise to supreme power depended not just on his own talents, nor on the nature of German society, but on the interaction of the two

    Richard Evans, Sunday Telegraph
  • One of the major historical biographies of our times ... Kershaw has written a dazzlingly lucid interpretation of the central dynamics of the Nazi regime which draws on a wide new range of sources and expertly manages a huge cast of accomplices ... a riveting read

    Jackie Wullschlager, Financial Times, Best Biographies of the Year
  • His analysis of Hitler's extraordinary character has the fascination of a novel, but he places his struggle and rise in the context of meticulously researched history ... Deeply disturbing. Unforgettable

    A.N. Wilson, Daily Mail
  • A sane, erudite, moral and intellectually honest biography of the 20th century's most destructive politician. Every page is focused on the historical question we would prefer to forget: how did it happen?

    Ruth Scurr, The Times
  • This new biography is of profound importance and will ... quickly establish itself as the standard work on Hitler and his regime

    Thomas Childers, Boston Globe
