The archetypal story of following the life that was and the life that could have been gets a news twist in this exploration of what Hitler's life could have been if a slightly different turn had been taken at a critical juncture. Quite a daring (near suicidal) proposition for a writer, but Schmitt pulls it off, with a successful balancing act of fact and fiction. An introspection that leaves the reader wondering if there could be a little bit (or a lot) of Hitler in any human being, ready to be unleashed, triggered by an unfortunate event, just like a butterfly effect that can trigger a hurricane.

Note: The English version of this book (according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89ric-Emmanuel_Schmitt) is "The Alternative Hypothesis (not found on Amazon.com). ( )
