op, 2002, 985 pages, toc, b/w and never published color photos, end paper (ep) maps, appendices, notes and sources, index, rear book ads, bound-in book mark ribbon. DOUBLE SIGNED by the Author on the Title page over a 6 year period. A scholarly detailed commentary of Hitler's leadership and decisions based upon 1st person accounts and primary sources. The War as seen through Hitler's eyes was expanded in this 2002 Edition based upon declassified documents in Germany and Russia since the 1991, 1999 and earlier editions. Needless to say, the observations in this book have been considered controversial and troubling. Nonetheless, it offers a remarkably scholarly, insightful and unique view of the War. This book is particularly unique and hard-to-find for two reasons - obviously it is double signed by the author on 23 April 2002 and again on 8 August 2008 and secondly, most of the US printed copies published by Macmillan were destroyed by the publisher.
