about this book

A dual biography of the two most destructive figures of our century, Hitler and Stalin examines its subjects' origins and personalities, traces the arc of their careers, analyzes the methods by which they seized and clung to power, and assesses the scars they left on their world with a clarity and mastery of detail that are nothing less than breathtaking.

"The crowning achievement of a distinguished career...To understand how Nazism and Stalinism came to power and held sway for so long, one could do no better than to read this extraordinary dual biography."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A model of the art and craft of thinking and writing history, and a triumph of the skill and determination of one historian...For anyone wanting to get to grips with the 20th century by reading just one book--this is it."--Chicago Sun-Times
