Mein Kampf
Posted 8/13/11 , edited 8/13/11
Has anyone read the manga adaptation of Mein Kampf?

I just read it, it's only 4 chapters long. It was okay I guess, I haven't read the original book nor do I have a sound knowledge about Hitler and WWII...So I can't really criticise.

I'll look it up, it looks interesting enough. The only WW2-themed mangas I've ever read were Adolf and Hetalia, and both were quite entertaining.

"Mein Kampf" would make for a good children's storybook.

Personally I like Hitlers book about interior design called Mein Kampfy Chair.

Mein Kampf has nothing to do with WW2, but rather WW1 and the troubles germany (and europe) was facing.

Ah, I see. I've never read it, so I wouldn't know. Makes sense, as it was written in 1925 xD Sorry, that was a really dumb mistake of mine.

Haven't read it myself either. But I've read a lot about it...

Think you could give a basic outline? I only know that in the beginning, he talks of his childhood (in which his father abused him and he learned he wanted to be an artist).

As I said, I haven't read it. But from what I've heard it's about him growing up, how the world was unfair to him and how he feels the situation in Europe should be handled. Also some stuff from WW1 I guess.. He wrote most of it while in prison hospital or something.
