<h3>What incidents and environments wrought <strong>the</strong> <strong>most hated man</strong> <strong>in history</strong>? How does a child become a young man who evolved into a self-proclaimed messiah? Why did this <strong>one </strong>man become a psychotic who was responsible for the deaths of more than 50 million people?<br /><br /><sub>This book follows the first, formative years of Adolf Hitler’s life. Presented as a personal journal, this is a fact-supported re-telling of a desperate existence, as viewed by Hitler, and tracks the points of pain that forged his beliefs. From a childhood of abuse and cheating death to an agonizing unrequited love to torturous years as a beggar in Vienna to finally finding his destiny. Enflamed by delusions, Hitler embraced the powers he believed guided his life.<br /><br />This is a story of dire happenstances that broke a mind and spirit, created beliefs that twisted innocence, ultimately morphing into a malicious brew that changed the world <strong>forever</strong>.</sub><br /><br />This is the <em>one</em> story that's never been told. </h3><h2><br /></h2><h2><br /></h2><p><br /></p>
