The Unfathomable Ascent: How Hitler Came to Power

£24.99

Published during the tense 2020 presidential election in the United States, this book is a chilling “cautionary tale” of Adolf Hitler’s rise to power between 1925 and 1933.

Ross Range examines the improbable coming to power in 1933 of Hitler’s fractious Nazi movement, repeatedly rescued from defeat by the support of a section of German industrialists and financiers. Reich President Hindenberg’s reluctant decision to hand Hitler power would lead to the Third Reich and the slaughter of millions in the bloodbath of the second imperialist world war.

Description

Ross Range examines the improbable coming to power in 1933 of Hitler’s fractious Nazi movement, repeatedly rescued from defeat by the support of a section of German industrialists and financiers. Reich President Hindenberg’s reluctant decision to hand Hitler power would lead to the Third Reich and the slaughter of millions in the bloodbath of the second imperialist world war.

The parallels to the growth of fascist movements not only in the United States but as a global phenomenon are unmistakable.
