August Kubizek met Adolf Hitler in Vienna in 1904. Their mutual passion for music created a bond, and over the next four years they became friends, even sharing a flat at one point. Kubicek's memoir was first published in 1953, but has never before appeared in a full English translation; it offers a rare glimpse into the dictator's formative years and provides important insights into his personality. Ian Kershaw, Britain's leading historian of the Third Reich, provides a critical introduction.
