Does Hitler emerge as a mythic anti-hero whose crimes and errors blur behind an aura of power and conquest? By making Hitler's biographers, rather than Hitler himself, the subject of inquiry, Lukacs reveals the contradictions that take us back to the true Hitler of history. By examining those like the controversial historian David Irving who have been involved in a rehabilitation of Hitler, Lukacs draws powerful conclusions about Hitler's differences from other monsters of history, such as Napoleon, Mussolini and Stalin. As the New York Times said of this book: 'Surprising, even shocking. Mr Lukacs arrives at his conclusions with painstaking, exhaustive logic that is hard to resist.'Hide synopsis
