Mystery of Hitler's Youth.

Hitler as as a youth and young man.

On page 161 of The Coming of The Third Reich, Richard J. Evans clearly states that little is known of Hitlerís childhood, youth and upbringing and much, if not most of what has been written about his early life is highly speculative, distorted or fantastical.

This book was first published in 2003 but the book, Adolf Hitler by John Tolland, was published in 1992 and deals extensively with Hitlerís ancestry, his youth and his early years in Austria. I was very impressed with Tollandís work and would hardly describe it as speculative, distorted or fantastical.

But the most curious thing of all is that John Tollandís book doesnít even appear in Richard Evansí bibliography.

Very strange.
