"This is the definitive book on the Hitler trial in the English, German, or any language." -- Peter Ross Range, author of 1924: The Year That Made Hitler "A courtroom drama both farcical and ominous. An absorbing, detailed account of a crucial-but often overlooked-chapter in Hitler's rise." -- Joseph Kanon, author of The Good German and Leaving Berlin "A powerful work that underlines what a pivot point the trial was-and how badly it went awry." -- Bookpage "An astute work of scholarship and vivid narrative....A meticulously researched, deeply instructive work with great relevance for our current era of right-wing resurgence." -- Kirkus (starred review) "King affirms his reputation as a first-rate narrative historian in this well-researched....fast-paced account." -- Publishers Weekly "Engrossing and well-researched....[King] vividly sets the scene....This first book-length account in English of Hitler's trial makes an important contribution to the understanding of modern totalitarianism." -- Christian Science Monitor "As captivating as it is well researched and scholastically precise." -- The New Criterion "Gripping....The Trial of Adolf Hitler provides a textbook example of how a determined demagogue can turn defeat into victory. It is also a disturbing portrait of how an advanced country can descend into chaos and of the human cost that this chaos entails." -- Frederick Taylor - Wall Street Journal
