This is a hard book to review.

You would like to believe that, homosexual or not, "dear sweet" Adolf had some kind of sexual inadequacy that made his life unfulfilling. After all, he made life so terrible for millions of people, so why shouldn't he have been unhappy too.

The fact that Hitler's "tragic flaw," whatever his sexual problem was, eventually led to death for 50 million people, and horror for tens of millions more, is an historic tragedy.

We'll probably never know, as he took great pains to destroy all evidence of his personal life.

This book has been criticized as being unfounded. The truth is there is evidence of homosexuality in many who were leaders of the Nazi party. Some of the criticism made be due to the fact that homosexuality is no longer considered politically IN-correct for many, and to brand Hitler as a homosexual may brand homosexuals as evil too.

Still, as one homosexual quoted in the books states, just because one homosexual is evil, doesn't mean all are.

The real tragedy is that there are still people today who believe Hitler was right in doing what he did.
