Description
Hitler’s makeover from rabble-rouser to statesman coincided with a series of dramatic home renovations he undertook during the mid-1930s. This book exposes the dictator’s preoccupation with his private persona, which was shaped by the aesthetic and ideological management of his domestic architecture. His bachelor life stirred rumours, and the Nazi regime relied on the dictator’s three dwellings -- the Old Chancellery in Berlin, his apartment in Munich and the Berghof, his mountain home on the Obersalzberg -- to foster the myth of a morally upstanding and refined man, both within Germany and abroad.

Inarguably the powder-keg title of the year. ARCHITECURAL DIGEST
