Summary:
In "Hitler's First War," award-winning author Thomas Weber delivers a master work of history--a major revision of our understanding of Hitler's life. Weber paints a group portrait of the List Regiment, Hitler's unit during World War I, to rewrite the story of his military service while offering a profound challenge to the idea that World War I served as the perfect crucible for Hitler's subsequent rise.
