The true story of the monumental criminal proceeding that followed when Hitler and nine other suspects were charged with high treason. Reporters from as far away as Argentina and Australia flocked to Munich for the sensational four-week spectacle. By its end, Hitler would transform the fiasco of the beer hall putsch into a stunning victory for the fledgling Nazi Party. It was this trial that thrust Hitler into the limelight, provided him with an unprecedented stage for his demagoguery, and set him on his improbable path to power. Based on trial transcripts, police files, and many other new sources, including some five hundred documents recently discovered from the Landsberg Prison record office, this is a gripping true story of crime an dpunishment -- and a haunting failure of justice with catastrophic consequences. --

Detailed account of Hitler's failed 1923 putsch and his subsequent trial for treason. Explains how he turned a fiasco that should have ended his career into a demagogic triumph that magnified his importance and set him on the road to supreme power. In this narrative, the putsch seems hopeless and laughable. But the description of the trial and its aftermath shows that Hitler's support was already dangerously widespread.
