Publisher's Summary

Adolf Hitler had no compassion for his fellow man and yet could beguile them individually or in tens of thousands; he was so narcissistic that he could throw a tantrum to get his way if his supposedly iron will was contradicted. His favoured architect, Albert Speer, compared him to a 6-year-old child. This remark provides a valuable insight when considering Hitler's unthinking cruelty and incomparable destructiveness.In this sometimes spine-chilling audio biography, the dark atmosphere of the age is superbly conveyed, with actor Michael Burrell giving a terrifyingly convincing interpretation of the demonic despot.
Hitler is played by Michael Burrell, with other parts played by Michael Kilgarrif and Michael Sheard.


Audible Editor Reviews

Stephen Thorne heads a cast of actors in this biography of Adolf Hitler, written by Steven Fuller, who traces Hitler's rise from a violent, stubborn youth to the despotic leader of the Third Reich. Thorne's crisp diction makes Fuller's portrait a thorough and reputable account of how a young man - grief-stricken over his mother's early death, frustrated with his failures as an artist, and obsessed with socialism at an early age - became the dynamic ideologue responsible for the Holocaust. Michael Burrell gives a harsh, bristling, and credible performance as Hitler, adding even more authenticity to this remarkable biography.

Hitler in 59 Minutes

What would have made Adolf Hitler better?

It was always going to be ambitious to do a dramatization of Hitler's life in an hour. i found this work less than comprehensive, the performances were poor and bland.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Stephen Fry - The Hippopotamus

Would you listen to another book narrated by Stephen Thorne and Full Cast ?


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

Would be really cool to have a dramatized version of Fuhrer by Alan Prior.
