History has revealed to U.S. the full depth of the horrific actions carried out under the leadership of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany. However, the articles in this collection offer a unique perspective: that of journalists and the public during Hitler's rise to power, conquest of Europe, and attempted extermination of Europe's Jewish population. The New York Times's coverage of Hitler ranged from wise warnings about the dangers he presented to profiles of his diet and private life. The various types of news stories in this book offer diverse takes on the rise of one of history's most despicable dictators and how the world responded to his bloodlust.
