Provides an account of the events that culminated in Adolf Hitler's taking power in January of 1933.

Turner, a Yale history professor, expounds in riveting detail the pressures and intrigues that brought Hitler to power in Berlin at the end of January 1933, just when his party was about to split apart. Once that supreme opportunist had got power, he held it for 12 fateful years. This illuminates many dark corners, and shows how much chance - rather than system - influences human affairs. In the guise of an old-fashioned monograph of narrative history, Turner takes on the prevalent view that Hitler's accession to power was the inevitable outcome of irresistible forces of history by demonstrating the powerful role chance and mischance, contingency, personality and, frankly, stupidity (on the part of conservative German political elites) played in bringing Hitler to power. He restores individual accountability - blame - to the individuals responsible and, refuses to exculpate their actions on the grounds that 'it would have happened anyway'. (Kirkus UK)
