309 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Like New. GERMANY. When the famous German author Sebastian Haffner died at the age of ninety-one in 1999, a manuscript was discovered among his unpublished papers. The book was begun in 1939, but with the advent of World War II, Haffner had set it aside. His family made the decision to publish it, and the result is Defying Hitler: A Memoir. Spanning the period from 1907 to 1933, it offers a unique perspective on the rise of Hitler and the growing influence of Nazism, and anticipates much of what was to unfold in the ensuing years. Haffner's personal memories form the basis for questioning, analyzing, and interpreting German History and culture. His astute and compelling eyewitness accounts provide a broad overview of a country in a constant state of flux. Translated into English from the German by the author's son, Oliver Pretzel. (Key Words: Adolf Hitler, Sebastian Haffner, Oliver Pretzel, Germany, National Socialism, Nazis, Stresemann, Memoirs).
