ADOLF HITLER - Bilder aus dem Leben des Führers
(Adolf Hitler - Pictures of the Life of the Führer)
Rare Third Reich German book published in 1936 by Cigaretten-Bilderdienst in Altona-Bahrenfeld, Germany.

Cigaretten-Bilderdienst was a German tobacco company which published blank books and sets of photos for those books which they marketed as a promotion for the cigarettes and tobacco they produced.

This Nazi book has an excellent historical text and photo captions that cover the period of Hitler's life from his birth in Braunau am Inn through his service in World War I, his excellent watercolor paintings, the battles of the early days of the NSDAP, the success of the Nazi Party in German elections and Hitler's eventual appointment as Reichskanzler or Chancellor of Germany.

Although written completely in German, the Silvian Library possesses a competent American-English translation by Jack Krapf and Ray Cowdery of every word of text and every photo caption in this historic book.
