With Hitler on the Road to Power by Dr. Otto Dietrich

Subtitled "Personal Experiences with my Leader," this work, written by Adolf Hitler's chief of press in 1934, details the three tumultuous election campaign years from 1930 through to the coming to power of the NSDAP in January 1933. The author formed part of Hitler's inner circle and campaign staff during this period-which included six full elections in two-and-a-half years-and later went on to become the chancellor's personal press officer. Starting with a short backgrounder of the growth of the National Socialist party, Dietrich then springs into a vivid description of the exhausting and intense electoral campaigns. Many fascinating details are included, such as Hitler's hectic speaking schedule, and his ground-breaking-and sometimes highly dangerous-innovation of flying to meetings up and down the country. Hitler's schedule, Dietrich recalled, was so intense that his entourage had trouble keeping up with him. Also detailed are accounts of the Communist Party's endeavors to stop Hitler-which included the setting of ambushes, and the attempts by the supposedly democratic parties to legally restrict the NSDAP. Finally, the triumph of winning power-and the political intrigue which preceded it-are ably presented, before the work finishes with a broader philosophical discussion on the new National Socialist government's position and interaction with the rest of the world.
