review ½ The Hitler of History Above the fray to produce a definitive history of a history the history of the evolution of our understanding of Hitler's life and our debates about its meaningLike an expert attorney Lukacs puts the biographies on trial identifying their strengths weaknesses and hidden agendas And through their intersecting and conflicting accounts he addresses the enduring enigmas surrounding the demiurge of the Third Reich Was Hitler a revolut. Lukacs delves into areas others fear to tread and asks some awkward uestions about our perceptions of Hitler His nit picking at biographies uncovers authors intentions and reveals that even some of the best respected and most highly regarded of historians have on occassion faltered in their facts and figures and that some have even used innacurate research by holocaust deniers This book has certainly made me rethink my view of Hitler although I still disagree with Lukacs well argumented case that we should consider Hitler a revolutionary rather than a reactionary although his catogarizing Hitler as an idealist determinist is unarguable The only down side to this book is the author s assumption that all readers are fluent in German which makes some of his references difficult to understand without a German
