A Chronology of his Life and Time


Hitler: a Chronology of his Life and Time should serve as a constant companion to students of Twentieth-century history who need a reliable and comprehensive reference book when dealing with topics related to German interwar history and the Second World War itself. In particular, the book traces the origins and development of three dominant themes in Hitler's life: what he understood under the headings of 'Race', 'Living Space' (Lebensraum), and World Dominion (Weltherrschaft).
Like the successful 1983 edition this detailed reference guide is based on a vast number of sources recording every detail of Hitler's life and career, with extensive quotations from Hitler's writings and speeches.
