Professor Stephen Fritz On His Book “The First Soldier: Hitler as Military Leader”

April 26, 2021

Was Adolf Hitler’s military leadership truly the cause of Nazi Germany’s defeat in World War II? On this week’s “Leaders and Legends” podcast, we talk with best-selling historian Professor Stephen Fritz about Hitler’s performance as supreme commander during the war, how his military performance was affected by his political insanity, and how hard it is for an author to be complimentary of Adolph Hitler’s performance even when praise is justified.
