It seems appropriate that a book on Adolf Hitler is the first book in a new series History's Worst.  This biography follows Hitler from birth through his childhood and his rise to power.  An aspiring art student, Hitler was rejected from art school several times before he moved to Germany.  There he joined the military and fought in World War I.  After the war, he turned his interest to politics and used his charismatic nature to become one of the most powerful men in Germany.  When he finally become the leader of Germany, he began his plan to control Europe and do away with people he felt were inferior to the Germans. He paid no attention to laws or treaties with other countries.  He took what he wanted and eliminated those who opposed him.  Read about one of history's worst.
