Comrade Hitler: Man of the Left

Norman Stone reviews Thomas Weber’s Hitler’s First War. It sounds like an amazing piece of scholarship. How is it possible that there’s any new archival material to discover about Hitler?

I’ve already ordered the book from Amazon. But this tidbit bears highlighting now:

Mr. Weber has discovered that, briefly at the turn of 1918-19, and unmentioned in “Mein Kampf,” Hitler wore a red brassard and supported the short-lived Bavarian Soviet Republic.

Oh. My.

Well, if I ever do a new edition, that’ll have to go in there.
