Description

Mein Kampf The angry ranting of an obscure, small-party politician, the first volume of Mein Kampf was virtually ignored when it was originally published in 1925. Likewise the second volume, which appeared in 1926. The book details Hitler's childhood, the "betrayal" of Germany in World War I, the desire for revenge against France, the need for lebensraum for the German people, and the means by which the National Socialist party can gain power. It also includes Hitler's racist agenda and his glorification of the "Aryan" race. The few outside the Nazi party who read it dismissed it as nonsense, not believing that anyone could--or would--carry out its radical, terrorist programs. As Hitler and the Nazis gained power, first party members and then the general public were pressured to buy the book. By the time Hitler became chancellor of the Third Reich in 1933, the book stood atop the German bestseller lists. Had the book been taken seriously when it was first published, perhaps the 20th century would have been very different. Beyond the anger, hatred, bigotry, and self-aggrandizing, Mein Kampf is saddled with tortured prose, meandering narrative, and tangled metaphors (one person was described as "a thorn in the eyes of venal officials"). That said, it is an incredibly important book. It is foolish to think that the Holocaust could not happen again, especially if World War II and its horrors are forgotten. As an Amazon.com reader has pointed out, "If you want to learn about why the Holocaust happened, you can't avoid reading the words of the man who was most responsible for it happening." Mein Kampf, therefore, must be read as a reminder that evil can all too easily grow.

    It really shows how deluded Hitler was and to the idiot who thinks this should be illegal, shut up. Books shouldn't be banned just because you disagree with it, this book is good in a historical sense as it shows the mindset of Hitler.

    If you want the mad ramblings of a very deluded mind repeated ad nausium, this is a great read. /s It has a boogie man, a very simple message and an apparently simple solution. Technically awful, morally bankrupt and very boring. I waited years to read this out of morbid curiosity. I now wish I hadn't bothered. Honestly, as an historic artefact it's important, sort of. As a work of literature it's just a meaningless diatribe that was as doomed to failure as its author. Historical value only.
