This Part("pages" 8 to 15) describes the horrors and waste of WWI while, at the same time, placing Hitler within the action by using historical records, Hitler's own words and those of fellow soldiers and friends. These five-and-a-half years of Hitler's life are usually glossed over by most historians. Yet, he was made into what every upper class citizen would like to see every solider become who is protecting their way of life--a brave, resolute, determined, patriotic and loyal subordinate. When one understands what Hitler, and millions of other unknowns like him experienced during WWI, one can better understand why WWII and its horrors occurred.
