A master cartoonist and veteran tells the life story of the man who started the Second World WarSeventy years after his death, Adolf Hitler remains a mystery. Historians, military tacticians, and psychologists have tried in vain to unravel his complex motivations for leading Germany into the Holocaust and World War II. With Shigeru Mizuki's Hitler, the manga-ka ( Kitaro, NonNonba, Showa: A History of Japan ) delves deep into the history books to create an absorbing and eloquent portrait of Hitler's life.
Beginning with Hitler's time in Austria as a starving art student and ending with a Germany in ruins, Shigeru Mizuki's Hitler retraces the path Hitler took in life, coolly examining his charismatic appeal and his calculated political maneuvering. The Munich Beer Putsch, Hitler's ascent to chancellor, the sudden death of his half-niece Geli, the Battle of Stalingrad, his relationship with Eva Braun, and his eventual demise: all are given equal attention in this thorough and compelling biography.
In Mizuki's signature style, which populates incredibly realistic backgrounds with cartoony people, Japan's most famous living cartoonist has created an overview of Hitler's life that is as fascinating as it is informative.

In Japan, the life of Mizuki and his wife has been portrayed in an extremely popular daily television drama. Mizuki is the recipient of many awards, including the Best Album award for NonNonBa ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manga master brings history to life The story here is so familiar - the rise and fall of Hitler. Yet somehow Mizuki makes the story seem new. As manga it is a stripped down and concise history yet it captures everything. And testament to his bing a master storyteller her even manages to bring new facts forward in his stripped down history. Again Mizuki has shown how manga can be the highest of literature. Or even history. #plumreview

Praise for Showa: A History of Japan

" Showa is literature, illustrated or not, at its finest: a story that sweeps you off your feet only to find, when you return to Earth, that nothing looks quite the same." ? Los Angeles Times
