2nd printing 1982. 185 pp., numerous cold., + b&w photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 29 x 22cm. FINE. From the creation of the Third Reich to its final destruction, The Illustrated Hitler Diary looks behind the documented history at the actual words of the man himself. Quotations of his increasingly bizarre ideas, comments and accusations are dramatically presented with a detailed analysis of whether or not they were true, and their military, political and human consequences. Hitler's thoughts on his enemies, his sometime friends in the Nazi inner circle – and of course his feelings for Eva Braun – are included, along with his reactions to the assassination attempts, the mass bombing of German cities and major campaign victories and defeats. Dozens of photographs, many in full colour, graphically illustrate this unique record of the dictator's war and give a remarkable insight into the mind, motivation and strategy of Adolf Hitler.
