The Secret Journals of Adolf Hitler by A.G. Mogan is a gripping opening book that explores the psychology of one of the historical personages that have shaped the course of modern history, the man responsible for the death of millions of people, Adolf Hitler. Most people will always remember Hitler in association with the Holocaust, but few historians have been able to penetrate the depths of Hitler’s mind. What was it that made him tick? What were the factors — familial, social, and environmental — that made him a historical conundrum that has haunted the human mind, a vile and ruthless dictator, an unpredictable psychotic? In this novel, the author allows Hitler to speak for himself, recreating an exciting character that readers will want to explore, a character who gives clear answers to these questions.

This well-researched and compelling historical novel took me by surprise in many instances and I had no doubt, as I read through the pages, that the author has spent time studying Hitler. I was surprised at some of the facts the author unearthed about Hitler’s troubled childhood, including the abuses, begging in Vienna and nurturing an unrequited love. In these pages, the reader meets the Hitler that history ignores and they can get to the root cause of his madness. Told in Hitler’s own voice, the story is captivating, rich in imagery and psychological depth. A.G. Mogan’s writing is great and I enjoyed the historical references, the clear and compelling narrative voice, and, above all, the portrait of the protagonist. The Secret Journals of Adolf Hitler will entertain and inform both fans of history and psychology and any reader who loves well-crafted stories with characters that are developed to feel as real as one’s road trip companions. This one is an awesome treat for fans of historical novels and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
