I recommend by Alan Bullock

The best books are The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William Shirer, Hitler the missing years by Ernst Hanfstaengl, At Hitler's Side by Nicholaus von Below,Inside the Third Reich by Albert Speer, Berlin Diary by William Shirer, I knew Hitler by Kurk Ludecke. Also any of the Time Life Third Reich books. The Hanfstaengl book in great because he is the only one who gives us a glimpse of Hitler's early years. Berlin Diary is great because Shirer was around so many top Nazis in the early years and has great discriptions of life in Nazi Germany before the war. Speer's book give you an inside look at people and events from first to last. To Temper your reading, read the Bravest Battle about the Jewish fight against the Nazis in the Warsaw ghetto and how brave they were in fighting and dying againt their Nazi foes.

Be careful of relying too much on Shirer's testimony. He experienced the Third Reich at first hand - this makes him a great witness and source of evidence but not necessarily a great historian!

Bullock's "A Study in Tyranny" is still regarded as a definite piece (and is highly readable).

Any book by Laurence Rees, he writes in every day language and does not over complicate the issues

This person performance at the 1936 summer Olympic Games made him famous?

Jesse Owens. He was an African American, and his performance was an embarrassment more so to Adolf Hitler, than the German people.

Did Adolf Hitler hate christians?

Hitler was a baptized christian but he did his best to destroy it. Much has been made of the fact that Adolf Hitler spoke of "God" in his writings. But what kind of god did Hitler believe in? Certainly not the God revealed in Jesus Christ. He believed rather ala Hegel in the divinization of the State, the People, the Reich. And, as the soul and very personification of the Reich, this meant that Hitler believed he was himself indistinguishable from god and in this was like Caligula and the other ancient emperors of Rome, whose pagan brutality he so admired. Hitler was't a proper christian, He along many Germans were Nazi Christians ad Hitler was their god.

Why did Hitler think He could defeat the Russians during World war 2?

After Hitler defeated France, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and the rest of continental Europe without hardly having to work up a sweat, it seems that nobody could stop him. The German military was the best armed, best disciplined, and most feared military on Earth. It seemed reasonable to expect that Russia would not be much more of a problem than any of the other nations which had already proved to be no match for the Third Reich. Of course, Russia is tremendously larger than any of those other countries, which is what Hitler failed to adequately consider.
