After reading Mein Kampf, my views about Hitler began to change and soften ... I could see what he was saying as opposed to what the media and my teachers "thought" he was saying. It led me to further investigate this man who even President Kennedy considered him a man that the passing of time and the truth would label him "a great man." When I found out he had written a second book that at the time was unpublished, it became a MUST READ! After finishing this edition which is the longer, more in...
It is amazing to see the power and insanity that encumbered this man. To say he was a genius is an understatement. An evil genius, but a genius nevertheless
As I wrote in my review of Mein Kampf, I wished to read this book objectively, and for historical research purposes.After reading Mein Kampf, I decided I really wanted to read this book, not because I support Nazism or any totalitarian ideology, but because I am so interested in Adolf Hitler. His life, his decisions, his ideology, his views on various social sciences; to do so requires me to read his writings and his speeches. I personally think Hitler was not a madman, but he was a intelligent
author originally wanted to write a multi-volume serial fantasy, like Tolkien or George Martin, but was discouraged by early bad reviews of the first volume. persistent scholars have done everyone the favor of uncovering this conclusion to the thrilling saga commenced in Mein Kampf.
Unpublished. Probably unpublished because it was intended as propaganda for rallying Germany towards war, but events in Europe went faster than even Hitler had imagined.
Anything that I might normally write in a review has been described sufficiently in the Goodreads description.I found the work very illuminating into aspects of Hitler's personal philosophy and its relation to his larger outlook on politics. He also provides the reader with a number of incisive commentaries on Germany's geopolitical situation during, prior to, and after WWI.
dis book was also da shizzle!
A rather dry book about (supposedly) Hitler's ideas on foreign policy. A vast majority of the book was very boring. The only chapters that particularly interested me were chapters 1-3 where he writes about his views on life, territorial conquest and domination. The rest of it was rather boring and uninteresting. I even skipped the last two chapters on England and Italy because he had already ranted a lot about the two countries through most of the book, and I already knew it was going to be more...
Somewhere in my mind, I think this is a farce. I don't believe Hitler wrote a second book.
Tl;dr; This book is much more informative and honest than Mein Kampf. Finally we get to see Hitler for who he really was.It is NOT required to read Mein Kampf/My Struggle first. In fact, having read this book as well, I believe it’s a serious waste of your time. But it can be useful to understand the differences between these two books.Mein KampfMein Kampf is foremost a lengthy utterance of anger and frustration, like a child who doesn’t get his candy. Hitler talks about the past and current pro...
More "Clap Trap" from a crazed genius. Just a pure evil person.An outline and road map combined with Mein Kampf was his manifesto to world dominance.He explains his views as to who are friends and enemies of Germany. I want to make sure I go to Heaven, because to be in the company of this evil soul and the likes of Mao and Stalin would be another hell within itself.Makes one wonder, why God would allow such an evil presence among us.On a side note: I read Norman Mailer's last book "Castle In The...
The most interesting thing about this book is Hitler's views on foreign policy. I think it is easy to make comparisons between his lust for land and the paranoia the German leadership felt about being encircled by enemies before World War One. His views on the German "Folk" and national identity are also somewhat interesting. Since I didn't know about this book it was worth looking into for context regarding World War Two. My main question is regarding its authenticity, but that is my own person...
I am saying this is better than Mein Kampf, not just because it is shorter but also because I appreciate the editor's notes on the provenance and occasional footnotes on issues with claims Hitler was making. Reading Hitler's thoughts is still a horrible experience, but having decided it was necessary, at least it was slightly less of an ordeal this time.
2 Mein 2 Kampf
Very interesting if you wonder Hitlers views on different economic policies and how he perceived his allie countries and enemy.
My review is based solely on this books value as a work of historical insight.
Not a fan but no sequels are as good as the original it had a great story lots of good points but poorly written. Hoping for a new one soon. not all heroes wear capes ;)
This book is not an addictive book. But I do not regret reading this book.
There has been some debate whether or not this book is an artifact of history or a forged document. While I do not know for sure, the language of the book sounds similar to Hitler's famous document, the first Mein Kampf, while the foreign policy and alliance building he lays out in this book seems so similar to German's actions during WWII that I would not be surprised if this document was fake.
Wanting to know what the next move by Goodread PTB may be as they are closely following H's path.
I got about a quarter of way through this before stopping it. The book just didn't do it for me, maybe reading his actually 1st book might help make this more enticing.
