Mon Combat by Adolf Hitler

By Adolf Hitler

Mon strive against est un livre rédigé par Adolf Hitler entre 1924 et 1925. Commencé pendant les neuf mois de sa détention à los angeles felony de Landsberg à l. a. suite du putsch de l. a. Brasserie, l'ouvrage contient des éléments autobiographiques, l'histoire des débuts du NSDAP et diverses réflexions sur los angeles propagande ou l'art oratoire.

Si l'ouvrage peut être perçu comme un véritable « livre programme », les chambres à gaz n'y sont cependant pas directement évoquées bien que l'auteur fasse brièvement allusion à ce moyen d'extermination. los angeles rédaction de Mon wrestle: Mein Kampf répond à plusieurs motivations de l'auteur : 1.Emprisonné du eleven novembre 1923 au 20 décembre 19243 à los angeles legal de Landsberg à l. a. suite du putsch de l. a. Brasserie, Hitler se despatched trahi. Gouverné par l'émotion et los angeles colère, il cherche un règlement de compte body of workers ; 2.Du fait des avocats qu'il a dû engager pour sa défense, Hitler est criblé de dettes et los angeles views de droits d'auteur n'est pas étrangère à sa démarche d'écriture. 3.Enfin et surtout, Hitler veut s'imposer politiquement et devenir l. a. strength idéologique des milieux nationalistes de son époque. l. a. rédaction d'un texte qu'il conçoit comme un manifeste est pour lui une étape obligée de son parcours politique. Lors de son emprisonnement, Hitler tape son texte sur une Remington ou le dicte à plusieurs de ses camarades emprisonnés, dont Rudolf Hess et Emil Maurice four.

Mon strive against: Le texte d'origine a ensuite été remanié à plusieurs reprises par l'entourage de Hitler pour lui donner une forme plus cohérente et plus lisible.
