Mein Kampf is a much more interesting book, and more importantly, it was published during Hitler's life and with his permission. Hitler's Second Book: After reading Mein Kampf, my views about Hitler began to change and soften See also: In the first two chapters Hitler proclaims the balance between population and natural resources to be the main focus of any nation, and he gives it a far-reaching and detailed analysis.

Jun 11, sologdin rated it did not like it Shelves: Oct 24, Stuart Spitalnic rated it liked it. Probably unpublished because it was intended as propaganda for rallying Germany towards war, but events in Europe went faster than even Hitler had imagined.
Sep 22, Victor rated it it was ok. A rather dry book about supposedly Hitler's ideas on foreign policy. A vast majority of the book was very boring. The only chapters that particularly interested me were chapters where he writes about his views on life, territorial conquest and domination.
The rest of it was rather boring and uninteresting. I even skipped the last two chapters on England and Italy because he had already ranted a lot about the two countries through most of the book, and I already knew it was going to be more A rather dry book about supposedly Hitler's ideas on foreign policy.
I even skipped the last two chapters on England and Italy because he had already ranted a lot about the two countries through most of the book, and I already knew it was going to be more of the same stuff. Mein Kampf is a much more interesting book, and more importantly, it was published during Hitler's life and with his permission.
This book, however, was published a couple of years after his death. Thus, this makes me a bit sceptical of its legitimacy Interesting Quotes: Just as internationalism damages and thereby weakens the existing racial value, and just as democracy destroys personal qualities, so pacifism disables the natural powers of a people's self-preservation. The prominent one occupies himself with it most persistently but nevertheless fears it the least.
The one lives blindly from day to day, sinning away, only to sink down before the grim reaper. The other carefully observes his approach but then looks him in the eye, calm and composed. That means I am openly committed to the Volkstum ethnic community.
All of my thoughts and actions belong to it. I am a socialist. I see before me no class or rank, but rather a community of people who are connected by blood, united by language and subject to the same collective fate. I love the people and hate the current majorities only because I do not see them representing either the greatness or the happiness of my people.
Sep 02, Devan rated it it was amazing. Oct 18, Frederick rated it liked it. The most interesting thing about this book is Hitler's views on foreign policy.
I think it is easy to make comparisons between his lust for land and the paranoia the German leadership felt about being encircled by enemies before World War One. His views on the German "Folk" and national identity are also somewhat interesting.
Since I didn't know about this book it was worth looking into for context regarding World War Two. My main question is regarding its authenticity, but that is my own person The most interesting thing about this book is Hitler's views on foreign policy.
My main question is regarding its authenticity, but that is my own personal concern. It is consistent with Mein Kampf. Jul 11, Kevin Oliver rated it really liked it. My review is based solely on this books value as a work of historical insight. Oct 16, Betsy Ross rated it did not like it.
Somewhere in my mind, I think this is a farce. I don't believe Hitler wrote a second book. Mar 20, Douglas Cunningham rated it did not like it. There has been some debate whether or not this book is an artifact of history or a forged document. While I do not know for sure, the language of the book sounds similar to Hitler's famous document, the first Mein Kampf, while the foreign policy and alliance building he lays out in this book seems so similar to German's actions during WWII that I would not be surprised if this document was fake.
Feb 11, Moira rated it really liked it. At least this one's a bit better then Mein Kampf.
Dec 27, Rohit Kumar marked it as to-read. View 1 comment. Mar 26, Lemar Rivers rated it liked it. I got about a quarter of way through this before stopping it. The book just didn't do it for me, maybe reading his actually 1st book might help make this more enticing.

About Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler. During the final days of the war in , as Berlin was being invaded and destroyed by the Red Army, Hitler married Eva Braun. Hitler's "Zweites Buch": Reading primary historical source documents, even in translation, is less and less popular today.
The reading attention span has been traduced more and more by the growing demand for snippets of edited and propagandized bits of information. For many decades, from the date of its first publication on through until even now, Mein Kampf is considered important as a "key to Hitler's mind.
Mein Kampf from its first publication until now is evidence of just how disjointed Hitler's pathological mind was in In this work drafted two years later, in , unpublished with an informal title merely descriptive of its fact, Hitler's ZWEITES BUCH "Second Book" , Hitler's mind presents thoughts and arguments much more coherent; more succinct; clearer; and, much "truer keys" to his agenda and plans in the coming years.
Most assuredly, because this book was not published until and because Mein Kampf already was and remains "fixed" in the public mind as "classic Hitler"--if this Zweites Buch were required reading for students of World War II as 1 Hitler's more matured ideology and 2 a necessary correlate by which to evaluate all that followed from , after Hitler became Reichskanzler "Reich-Chancellor" , many scholarly works would require revision.
For example, look at historians' reconstructions and explanations of Hitler's attitudes towards Great Britain and the United States. Without the Zweites Buch, perhaps many explanations would remain essentially the same. However, with this book from , one reads from Hitler himself exactly what he thinks, without reconstruction.
In some works, historians have depended upon the diaries of Wehrmacht generals to illuminate what formerly seemed Hitler's "indeterminacy" or "vacillation" regarding England. Read the Zweites Buch and find some statements which are more illuminative than the generals' private thoughts. Compared with the ponderous, overwrought, mental-bludgeoning of his readers in Hitler's ersten Buch, Mein Kampf, his zweites Buch is much tighter, better-thought, completely engaging, for anyone interested in this pathological dictator's inner mental world, which he projected upon the entire outer political world.
