Acclaimed chronicle of the Second World War, beginning with an account of Hitler's ascent to power at a time when the Germans were stricken by humiliating military defeat, runaway inflation and economic depression. The Nazi leader's promises of regained national pride and prosperity struck a chord with millions of ordinary citizens, and he was elected on a tidal wave of popular support.
