--Rumor has it that our young are now so far removed historically from the Hitler experience so many of us felt so immediately that they sometimes confuse him as a contemporary of, say, Napoleon. Moreover, they haven't learned nor absorbed the full horror of the reign of carnage he visited upon the western world. Payne wants us all to remember & to study the story of how this "totally alienated" man full of "nihilistic fury" who more resembled Dostoyevsky's mouse hole man than any real person came to power, came to be called der Fuehrer & finally Oberster Gerichtsherr in a nation which claimed Enlightenment, came to give an unwary world Blitzkrieg & Auschwitz, came to cause such unparalleled suffering wherever he cast his rage. "We need to come to terms with Hitler by knowing more about him, because his spirit is far from dead
