A new biography of Adolf Hitler by a prominent German historian is likely to stir controversy with its argument that the Nazi leader's political acumen has been underestimated and that the belief in his hypnotic grip over Germans is inflated. Peter Longerich's "Hitler," to be released Monday, is a 1,295-page tome that includes material from the diaries of Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels and early Hitler speeches.Longerich also seeks to debunk the theory that Hitler had an irresistible charisma that captivated Germans, arguing it was largely artificially constructed by the Nazi propaganda machine that pumped out pictures of entranced fans at rallies.Longerich believes Germans' attitudes toward Hitler are still evolving seventy years after his death.
