What drove Adolf Hitler to do the abominable things he did? In this chilling new psychohistory, a distinguished psychotherapist with long experience in evaluating personality disorders examines Hitler's profoundly disturbed psyche. He then explains how Hitler made an entire nation help him advance a dark, deeply personal agenda.Dr. George Victor has drawn some surprising conclusions as he accounts for many of the most bizarre programs of the Third Reich. One of his most controversial findings is that Hitler had a plan to sterilize millions of ordinary Germans to ensure that, eventually, not a single drop of "Jewish blood" flowed in German veins. But even more amazing is Hitler's motivation for initiating the program. Dr. Victor also argues that many of Hitler's war decisions that contributed greatly to Germany's defeat achieved objectives of which military historians are unaware - objectives meant to satisfy Hitler's specific inner needs. This is the first book to show that implementation of the Final Solution was actually the root of Hitler's most disastrous military decisions.
