“The book is an impressive work of scholarship, with more than two dozen pages of footnotes and the blessing of esteemed World War Two historians. From Hitler’s irregular hours and unusual dietary preferences—his staff would leave out apple raisin cakes for him to eat in the middle of the night—to his increasingly monomaniacal demands, Ohler offers a compelling explanation for Hitler’s erratic behavior in the final years of the war, and how the biomedical landscape of the time affected the way history unfolded.” —THE NEW REPUBLIC

“While drugs alone cannot explain Germany’s early successes in World War II, Ohler makes an important case for the importance of the exploration of this subject toward a more complete historical understanding of the Third Reich and the Holocaust.” —THE JEWISH BOOK COUNCIL

“Ohler’s reputation precedes him… [Ohler] brings storytelling vigor to an unexplored corner of Hitlerology… Mordant and casual even in translation, it’s easy to mainline (with a pinch of salt mixed in).” VULTURE
