    One thought on “Hitler and Churchill”

    1. A fairly poor book The author is a rabid Churchill fan, which would be fine in this context if the book were actually focused on comparison The comparison segments are relatively few however and poorly constructed the way a 16 year old might write a comparison paper The author then spends way too much time defending Churchill from various detractors I think that is beyond ridiculous since this is not meant to be a biography and since such things are better saved for reviews of the books you feel [...]

    2. Andrew Roberts takes the concept of how one person can lead millions and compares it to the leadership styles of Hitler and Churchill Though general parallels can be made of their charisma, oratory ability, use of symbolism, and trademarks they possessed Both were effective leaders with completely opposite styles of leadership Hitler was a hands off leader until the end of the war Hitler did not get involved in details He sold a vision and was simply involved in creating a strategy to accomplish [...]

    3. 3.5 Realmente es bueno, me da una perspectiva diferente y m s cercana de lo que pas en la 2 Guerra Mundial, aunque se nota el favoritismo hacia Churchill.

    4. Nice book on the leadership styles of Hitler and Churchill, full of examples and an analysis of why Churchill was the better leader of the twoNice read, but a bit light on the subject itself.

    5. AL FIN TERMIN ESTE LIBRO El experimento demostr , m s all de toda duda, que personas t midas, amables y decentes pueden convertirse en monstruos si se les presenta la oportunidad Este m s que un libro sobre dos mentes claves en la historia de la humanidad, es un libro que habla sobre la gente y como es f cilmente manipulada para acceder a cometer atrocidades tambi n habla sobre la educaci n y el car cter de ambos lideres, y como esto fue clave para el final de la guerra entre ambos sus pa ses es [...]

    6. First, in the introduction, we have Donald Rumsfeld and George Bush being portrayed as heroic figures Then we have such clunkers as the salient observation that neither Churchill or Hitler enjoyed independent means Then this gem on page 19 Although he was never as poor as Adolf Hitler was during his wilderness period, Churchill lived for many years teetering on the brink of bankruptcy Roberts outdoes himself in inanity with the following just a few pages later Both Hitler and Churchill, therefor [...]

    7. It s usefull and interesting, BUT, it starts recognizing nazi accomplishments and stating it will be a fair impartial look and then, after the first half, Roberts starts attacking Hitler unceasingly and overcomplementing Churchill which was a disapointment.Not to mention he, almost desperately, tries to convince you of why Hitler s statements about jews had no sense or grounds whatsoever, based on the number of Jews but his own numbers made me realize for the first the great positions Jews had e [...]

    8. More interesting was to get my father s impressions, since he lived it and remembers Churchill s speeches on the radio and the newsreels of Hitler s As other reviewers have noted, the author takes no pains to hide his own bias, although his comparisons are adequately objective There is a bit of repetition as some of the same data appear in different contexts, but the real difference between the two men is far than leadership style There is the issue of right and wrong, of the reality of evil, t [...]

    9. A very well documented comparison between Hitler and Churchill s leadership techniques The author is very thorough, yes, but the constant allusion or paraphrase of his own arguments conclusions get repetitive and, even sometimes, tiring The text is filled with many interesting facts about Hitler and Churchill s personal lives and their actions before WW2 that gives the reader insight about the way the war started and ended.

    10. A decent enough look into the differing leadership styles and to some extent abilities of two of the most important leaders in modern history.I am a fan of Winston Churchill and do agree with the author that he was the effective leader.That aside I do feel that Roberts is than a little biased which in my opinion detracts from the work overall

    11. For anyone who did not study history, this is an excellent book and connection point to understanding the political and cultural settings of that time The way that leadership is presented and handled is impressive and thought provoking An insightful book that I can only recommend.

    12. Learned some interesting facts about Hitler, other than the fact he was a mentally sick individual.

    13. An exciting and informative read of leadership and history From the courage of Churchill to the failings to say the least of Hitler, Roberts teaches parallel lessons that transcend through today.

    14. Un buen libro en que se examina con lupa y compara a estos dos l deres de la WWII Sus puntos en com n y sus diferencias resaltan dos formas opuestas de guiar multitudes.

    15. Easy to understand and informative Roberts gives a good introduction to these two important figures of the second world war.

    16. Un muy buen acercamiento a las caracter sticas y decisiones de ambos l deres que los llevaron al fracaso o a la victoria en cada caso.
