As a staff reporter on the Frankfurter Zeitung Heiden was one of the first writers to take a stand against Naziism, and his is the only contemporary document to give the whole story of Hitler's rise to power from the very beginning to the day in 1934 when the Blood Purge eliminated the last opposition, leaving hom absolute dictator of Germany. As Heiden states: "his path of murder and violence was, in accordance whit Hitler's beliefs, the right path to greatness".

This new edition of Heiden's work shows it to be not only a profound and revealing narrative but an important historical document essential to both historian and layman for a greater understanding of the calamitous events that dominated the twentieth century.
