The Trial of Adolf Hitler is 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 In The Trial of Adolf Hitler, David King tracks the progression of Hitler's failed coup, arrest, and subsequent trial, which threw Hitler into the public spotlight and gave him a platform on which to introduce his demagogic powers to the German people. A story that drew interest across the globe at the time, but which has been largely forgotten in the annals of World War II history, this narrative is brought to our renewed attention by a book that is as captivating as it is well researched and scholastically precise. * The New Criterion *
