Hitler was thirty-four when he fired a pistol in a Munich beer hall one November night in 1923 and declared a revolution. Known as the beer hall putsch, this was Hitler’s dramatic entry onto the world stage. During the four weeks he and nine co-conspirators were on trial for high treason, Hitler turned the spotlight to his advantage, proclaiming the whole episode a triumph for the Nazi Party. Sentenced to five years in prison, he served nine months, using the time to write Mein Kampf. King, author of Death in the City of Light and Vienna 1814, weaves a riveting story from trial transcripts, police files, and a cache of documents that recently surfaced in a Nuremburg flea market.
