Description
The dark story of Adolf Hitler's life in 1924—the year that made a monsterBefore Adolf Hitler's rise to power in Germany, there was 1924. This was the year of Hitler's final transformation into the self-proclaimed savior and infallible leader who would interpret and distort Germany's historical traditions to support his vision for the Third Reich. Everything that would come—the rallies and riots, the single-minded deployment of a catastrophically evil idea—all of it crystallized in one defining year. 1924 was the year that Hitler spent locked away from society, in prison and surrounded by co-conspirators of the failed Beer Hall Putsch. It was a year of deep reading and intensive writing, a year of courtroom speeches and a treason trial, a year of slowly walking gravel paths and spouting ideology while working feverishly on the book that became his manifesto: Mein Kampf.Until now, no one has fully examined this single and pivotal period of Hitler's life. In 1924, Peter Ross Range richly depicts the stories and scenes of a year vital to understanding the man and the brutality he wrought in a war that changed the world forever.

      • premium: False
      • source: Ronald Rosbottom, author of When Paris Went Dark
      • content: This book could not be more necessary, as Germany prepares to re-publish Mein Kampf for the first time in 70 years. Range gives us a fluent narrative of Hitler's 13 months in prison, where he wrote his political testament. Eminently readable.

      • content: Hundreds of historians, perhaps thousands, have set out to explain how Hitler became Hitler — but none have succeeded nearly so well, or so brilliantly, as Peter Ross Range. 1924: The Year That Made Hitler now stands front-and-center among those great works that, through a narrative that is both granular and compelling, finally explains one of the great mysteries of our era. Range's deft portrait clicks into place the final necessary nugget in one of our time's darkest eras and provides us with a biographical portrait that is chilling to read — but that we dare not ignore.

        December 1, 2015
        Following the current trend of focusing a work of history on a single year, a journalist and academic examines the year that Hitler spent in Landsberg Prison for his failed putsch of 1923. Range (Murder in the Yoga Store, 2013, etc.)--a former correspondent for U.S. News & World Report and a visiting scholar who's sojourned at several prestigious institutions, including Harvard and the University of North Carolina--takes some time escorting us through 1923, and even earlier, before arriving at 1924 nearly 125 pages in. He rehearses the life of Hitler, the German defeat in World War I, and the horrible postwar economy that was one of the factors enabling a fiery ex-corporal from Austria to rise in Germany's extreme right-wing political world. Range seems simultaneously disgusted and dazzled by his subject. Hitler's political and cultural views were, of course, repellant and murderous, but the man could deliver a stemwinder and could somehow attract to his cause all sorts of adherents, from the thugs who pounded on his enemies to the wealthy folks who kept him financially afloat. One society woman bought for him the typewriter that he used to pound out the first volume of Mein Kampf during his yearlong incarceration. (He wrote the second volume shortly after his release.) Range shows us Hitler's despair after his failed putsch late in 1923 and his hunger strike and other behavior in Landsberg. It was, the author demonstrates, his trial that re-energized the future dictator and drew even more Germans to his cause. He had a steady stream of visitors, and one fellow prisoner, Rudolf Hess, became a key figure in the Third Reich. Range's style is generally fluid and journalistic; his deep knowledge of the figures and events enables him to narrate clearly without being sucked into excessive explication. A lucid description of a year that made all the horror possible, even inevitable.

        January 1, 2016

        Journalist Range (A Killer in the Family) provides a detailed account of Adolf Hitler's career and the evolution of his ideology prior to the ill-fated Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 and through his subsequent trial and imprisonment, during which he wrote Mein Kampf, published in 1925. The year 1924 was, according to Range, when Hitler transformed himself from a local rabble rouser into a national politician. The author's recounting of the treason trial, and how Hitler turned it into a publicity forum for his own ideas--while destroying the careers of some of the mainstream Bavarian politicians who opposed him--are well argued, interesting reading, and are the strongest chapters in the book. The author's claim that he is breaking new historical ground, however, is less convincing as he doesn't utilize new sources, nor does he provide fresh interpretations; he often makes sweeping generalizations about the mind-set of the people who came to listen and who sometimes supported Hitler. VERDICT Despite the aforementioned issues, Range provides an informative narrative for those unfamiliar with the significance of the Bavarian debacle to Hitler's career. Recommended for general library collections.--Frederic Krome, Univ. of Cincinnati Clermont Coll.
