Ronald Hayman is a celebrated playwright, and biographer of Nietzsche, Brecht, Sylvia Plath and Thomas Mann. I thought that this book barely started to unfold the history of Geli and Hitler. It's main focus was on Hitler with what seemed to be a few side thoughts about a realationship that was said to be the most meaningful in Hitler's life. It raised many questions and did not offer many answers.

Hitler and Geli book. Few people know of the affair Adolf Hitler had with his niece, Geli. Hitler was shattered by his niece's death, and for the rest of his life couldn't speak of her without becoming emotional. Hitler & Geli is the remarkable and little-known story of the most important relationship in Hitler's life.

Higham Ronald Hayman (4 May 1932 – 20 January 2019) was a British critic, dramatist, and writer who was best known as a biographer. Ronald Hayman was born on May 4, 1932 in East Cliff Hotel in Bournemouth, England, a Jewish hotel which had been founded by his grandmother, Anne Morris. His mother, Sadie, was an administrator at the hotel while his father, John, was in a partnership running an antiques and jewellery business.

Few people knew about the affair Adolf Hitler had with his niece, Geli Raubal, when he was 38 and she was only 17. Geli came to live with Hitler in his house in Berchtesgaden with her mother, Angelika Raubal - his widowed half-sister and the only one of his relatives he was on good terms with.

Hitler was shattered by his niece's death, and for the rest of his life couldn't speak of her without becoming emotional.

Few people knew about the affair Adolf Hitler had with his niece, Geli Raubal, when he was 38 and she was only 17. Geli came to live with Hitler in his house in Berchtesgaden with her mother, Angelika Raubal - his widowed half-sister and the only one of his relatives he was on good terms with. The couple shared a strangely intense passionate relationship in the early years they spent together, but it was always dogged by Hitler's hopeless intolerance, chauvinistic attitude to womanhood and his perpetual possessive jealousy. Later, the significant weakening of the bond between Hitler and Geli coincided with the phenomenal rise in the popularity of the Nazis. On 14 September 1930, nearly six-and-a-half million people voted for the party that was, by then, virtually Hitler's personal possession. He had achieved unchallenged supremacy as leader, and this idolization by his public lessened his need to idolize Geli. His tenderness became twisted and his behaviour even more oppressive. In 1931, aged 21, Geli Raubal was found dead in the Munich flat she shared with Hitler; his revolver on the floor and an unfinished letter on the table. Hitler was absolutely shattered by his niece's death, and for the rest of his life was unable to speak of her without tears coming to his eyes. However, despite the obvious depth of Hitler's feelings for Geli and the enormous importance of their relationship in his life, there is scarcely mention of their strange uncle-niece bond. This volume examines the degeneracy in the family Hitler and Geli both came from, the emotional and sexual problems Hitler suffered, and gives the reader a chance to look at Hitler the man. It charts Hitler's movements away from normality and the consequent deterioration of his behaviour.

Some people would criticize this book for not being the historical end all analysis of Hitler's relationship with his niece. I don't feel that's important. No one should base their opinions off of one book. This is just one of the many you should read on the subject. Ronald Hayman takes an approach that many others haven't by concluding that Hitler's abnormal relationship with his niece may have spawned the genocidal impulses latent within him. That's one man's opinion. And it's an enjoyable one to read as the author is very articulate. But don't leave your research here. Continue on. Others have written on the subject (who are just as biased as the sources Hayman uses). One must find their own opinion of what's out there and to do so you'll need to read this book.

I give this 2 stars only for its historical information of Hitler himself. Most of which you can get from anyother book. I thought that this book barely started to unfold the history of Geli and Hitler. It's main focus was on Hitler with what seemed to be a few side thoughts about a realationship that was said to be the most meaningful in Hitler's life. It raised many questions and did not offer many answers. There are a few conflicts with previously written accounts of Hitler's sexual life. This relationship was surrounded by mystery and will continue to be surrounded by mystery when you are done reading.

Very good book if you are researching. Otherwise in general very interesting.
