About the Author

"This excellent book for the general reader is shorter and gives an authoritative and very readable understanding of who Hitler and Stalin were and what they did."--BookPage
"Rees is incredibly successful with this dual biography of the most notorious figures of the 20th century, focusing specifically on the war years."
"Via meticulous research and mesmerizing testimonies, Rees expertly reveals the 'malleability of the human mind'."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"This richly detailed history powerfully documents the destruction that tyrants with utopian visions can inflict upon the world."--Publishers Weekly
"In this fascinating study of two monsters, Rees is extraordinarily perceptive and original."--Sir Antony Beevor, author of Stalingrad.
"Coming from one of the world's experts on the Second World War, this is an important and original - and devastating - account of Hitler and Stalin as dictators. A must read."--Professor Robert Service, author of Stalin: A Biography.
"Laurence Rees brilliantly combines powerful eye-witness testimony, vivid narrative and compelling analysis in this superb account of how two terrible dictators led their countries in the most destructive and inhumane war in history."
--Professor Sir Ian Kershaw, author of Hitler - Hubris and Hitler - Nemesis
"Presenting this complex history with his usual clarity, his latest study is an enthralling read, weaving many fresh eyewitness accounts into the narrative, offering new insights and commanding his reader's attention despite the huge scope of his task."--Julia Boyd, author of Travelers in the Third Reich
"A vivid and terrifying portrait of the twentieth century's two most brutal tyrants. His mastery of the subject shines through on every page. Provocative, gripping and full of fresh insights, Hitler and Stalin is narrative history at its very best."--Henry Hemming, author of Churchill's Iceman
