Alan Bullock's bestselling and monumental masterpiece, now in a revised Second Edition`It is practically unprecedented to take two such monsters as Hitler and Stalin, who never met, and interweave their lives chronologically, chapter by chapter, often paragraph by paragraph, as Bullock has done...a triumph of organization, lucidity and perspective.' John Campbell, The Times`Compulsive reading. The sweep is broad and the information concisely conveyed without any sign of pedantry...a titanic narrative history.' Zara Steiner, Financial Times`An astonishing feat of organization, brilliantly illuminating the tragic history of the twentieth century.' Philip Ziegler, Daily Telegraph Books of the Year`If you knew nothing about the twentieth century and were allowed one book to bone up on it, this would have to be it.' Alex Campbell, Daily Mail

" A monumental and completely absorbing volume that creates vivid portraits of...two tyrants, while illuminating the first half of this blood-stained century."-- The New York Times
Forty years after his Hitler: A Study in Tyranny set a standard for scholarship of the Nazi era, Lord Alan Bullock gives readers a breathtakingly accomplished dual biography that places Adolf Hitler's origins, personality, career, and legacy alongside those of Joseph Stalin--his implacable antagonist and moral mirror image.
