The Artist Within the Warlord: An Adolf Hitler You’ve Never Known

https://barnesreview.org/product/artist-within-warlord-adolf-hitler-youve-never-known/

Meet an Adolf Hitler you never knew in the pages of this truly extraordinary book . . .

Wilhelm Kriessmann and Carolyn Yeager, working as a team, translated sections from the German Ein Anderer Hitler (“Another Hitler”), the memoir of architect Hermann Giesler . . . and the result has become this volume which they titled The Artist Within The Warlord—An Adolf Hitler You’ve Never Known This is not the usual copy-cat “history” by another “historian” who tries to find some angle to make his or her book stand out from the hundreds of other books already on the shelves about the most misunderstood man in history.

Artist-Within-Warlord-Cover-8002This book is genuinely unique—taken from the account given by an intimate of Adolf Hitler who was privileged to enjoy many private talks with him during the time of some of the most momentous events of contemporary world history. Munich architect Hermann Giesler became from 1938 on not only Hitler’s favored architect for the renovation of Munich and Linz, but also an agreeable confidant to whom the Supreme Commander felt comfortable unburdening himself as they spent many hours together drafting city-wide building ideas. Hitler’s artist nature needed such a creative outlet, leading Giesler to become a more frequent guest at the Berghof and the two secret military headquarters Wolfsschanze and Werwolf for this very purpose. You will gain insight into how the artist and humanist in Hitler revealed itself i n his character and his world view (Weltanschauung).

Of Giesler’s book, Arno Breker, the great sculptor who also knew Hitler very well, wrote that it was “by far the most essential, most true and realistic reporting that has been written about the tragedy of that epoch.” Gerard Menuhin—son of famed Jewish-American violinist Yehudi Menuhin and the author of Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil —called Giesler’s book “wonderful” and “one of the main books to read about Hitler” in July 2017. That Giesler had so much trouble finding a publisher for his book tells the true tale of the value of this volume.

  1. More and more people are waking up to the lies about Adolf Hitler, the holocaust story is falling piece by piece. However the questions is, is there still time and are we waking up fast enough?

    JFK was an admirer of Hitler as he talked about it in his Diary.

    “After visiting these two places you can easily see how that within a few years Hitler will emerge from the hatred that surrounds him now as one of the most significant figures who ever lived. He had boundless ambition for his country, which rendered him a menace to the peace of the world, but he had a mystery about him in the way that he lived and in the manner of his death that will live and grow after him. He had in him the stuff of which legends are made.”

    1. I was recently listening to a radio interview with Carolyn Yeager and Michael Collins Piper. He talked at length about preparations for a biography on Hitler. I believe he wanted to call it “Hitler’s Century” referring not to the 20th but the 21st. He believed too as JFK did, that people would one day wake up to the lies. It is too bad he was never able to write that biography.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. We have such a distorted image of the man here in the US thanks to all the biased propaganda that is passed off as history.

    Another good book that just came out last month is Life in The Reich, by Mike Walsh. This short book tells us that life had improved significantly for the Germans under the economic and cultural policies of the National Socialist government in the 1930s.

    We ought to also mention the soon to be classic work by Nick Kollerstrom, How Britain Initiated Both World Wars. An eye opener for many to be sure.
