The Life and Death of Adolf Hitler

Written by James Cross Giblin. Published by Clarion.



Gibson poses and answers three questions in this compelling, accessible account of Hitler, his world and his legacy. "What sort of man could plan and carry out such horrendous schemes; how did he win support for his deadly ventures; and why did no one stop him until it was almost too late?"

"A true master of storytelling, Giblin demonstrates that Hitler was a more complex person than most textbooks portray," states Chair Sue McCleaf Nespeca. "An engrossing and absorbing text, this work sets the standard for biographies for older children."
