    1. On November, 8th, 1923, Hitler, who was suffering from toothache, left his rented room for the offices of the National Socialist newspaper, edited by Alfred Rosenberg. Due to inflation, the paper cost five billion marks. Hitler told Rosenberg, and the half-American Ernst Hanfstaengl, to be at the Burgenbrau beer cellar that evening – “The moment for action has come!”This then, is the story of the ‘Beer Hall Putsch,’ which Hitler managed to turn from a disaster, into something of a vict [...]

    2. This book chronicles one of the crucial moments of Adolf Hitler's life, after failing to overthrow the Weimar Republic in a failed putsch in 1923 him and his coconspirators were put in front of a court and charged with high treason, it should have been an easy conviction, there were thousands of witnesses, there was kidnapping of government officials, there was deaths , there were racist remarks and race violence against Jewish and minorities in Munich. But Hitler received the most lenient sente [...]

    3. The Trial of Adolf Hitler – Could he have been stopped?Historian David King asks a challenging question over the course of his book, The Trial of Adolf Hitler, could he have been stopped? That is a question that the reader will continue to ask themselves throughout the book, and that it what good historians do, make you question! King maybe a full-time writer now, but has taught European History and is a former Fulbright Scholar at Cambridge.The Weimar Republic was doomed from its existence, a [...]

    4. More like 4.5 stars, due to some breeziness of style and a bit too much conjecture here and there. Overall, an engrossing and chilling read. Watching Hitler become HITLER is sobering and says a lot about the power of demagoguery in bad times. Hitler was partly the center of a confluence of events and trends, and a gadfly who struck a chord with some people at a critical historical point. This book gives you a much clearer sense of what led to the rise of Hitler, how bullheadedness and delusion - [...]

    5. An excellent book as well as very interesting!!! This book tells of Adolf Hitler who tried unsuccessfully to attempt to overthrow the government in Germany and started the Beer Hall Putsch on November 8, 1923 at a beer hall in Munich. He was arrested and put on trial and was sentenced at Landsberg prison. While in prison, He wrote Mein Kempf-My Struggle. He wrote the book and had ideas to set up a government party and how to exterminate his opponents. Years later in January 1933, He established [...]

    6. A fantastic book to end the year with for me! I immensely enjoy historical tales; may of them hold more adventure and mystery mysticism than you would find in a fantasy novel. When written with an astute hand, the historical story takes a shape and form that gives it a mythical appearance. Imagine then, a 30-something man shouting and screaming nationalistic ideologies in a beer hall, rallying people to overthrow the existing republic, marching on with his supporters in the streets of Munich, be [...]

    7. David King's book on French mass murderer Dr Petiot -- not quite Dr Finlay nor Dr Marcus Welby -- was outstanding and this one is too. Drawing on newspapers from all round the world provides an interesting insight and early assessment of Hitler and also highlights how being already on probation he should have been banged up and deported to Austria at the end of his sentence. The Austrians had the good taste to reject him though for history's sake it is a shame they weren't pressured into doing s [...]

    8. Overall, this was an enjoyable read. I thought the first section which details the events of the Beer Hall Putsch was a little slow. However, the section dealing with the trial completely made up for it. What an absolute farce that one. The German nation is at fault for allowing the trial to be held in Munich. The judge is at fault for being biased and not maintaining order in his courtroom. Germany is again at fault for sentencing the conspirators to such light punishments. Hitler could have be [...]

    9. After failing to overthrow the Weimar Republic in a putsch, Hitler and his co-allies were put in front of a court to get charged with high treason. Although there were thousands of witnesses supporting all of their crimes, Hitler still emerged as the most powerful dictator of his time. He was allowed to stay in Munich and not deport to his native land.How he managed to turn the failure of the court into his victory? How he managed to turn all odds against him in his favour? Could he have been st [...]

    10. Excellent work about a little know subject, Hitler's trial. Well written and well researched by David King. He sticks to the subject and tells the story of the putsch and its aftermath. King doesn't waste your time with a lot of historical "what if's. If you are reading this book, you already know it. (like what if Hitler had gotten 30 years in prison. Would the Third Reich ever have happened? You already know that answer). One minor flaw--he doesn't tell you what happened to the 3 Bavarian lead [...]

    11. Excellent and highly recommendable story of how the tragicomic Beer Hall Putsch lead to the trial that gave Hitler a voice and stature outside of Munich and can be seen as the tipping point for the rise of Nazism. For a contemporary reader a frightening reminder of of how oratory can sway and ignite those weak multitudes vulnerable to populism .

    12. The Trial Of Adolf Hitler details the failed beer hall putsch and subsequent trial of Hitler and his co-conspirators. The book helps the reader to understand the post WWI Germany and the circumstances that allowed Adolf Hitler to the perpetrator of one of the most horrific genocides in history.

    13. It's an account of the Beer Putsch trial. Although at times the author brings important insights on the trial, how it proceeded, and how Hitler reacted to it, it fails to put these in a more eloquent manner. Many chapters go by a couple of pages only. I find this style is somewhat confusing.

    14. Very interesting deep dive into Hitler's trial. Good insights into early Third Reich leaders and their relationships with each other before coming into power.
