By Adolf Hitler

Mon wrestle est un livre rédigé par Adolf Hitler entre 1924 et 1925. Commencé pendant les neuf mois de sa détention à los angeles legal de Landsberg à l. a. suite du putsch de l. a. Brasserie, l'ouvrage contient des éléments autobiographiques, l'histoire des débuts du NSDAP et diverses réflexions sur l. a. propagande ou l'art oratoire. Surtout l'auteur divulge, dans un kind empreint de haine, toute l'idéologie totalitaire du nazisme, avec ses composantes hégémoniques, belliqueuses mais aussi racistes et ouvertement antisémites, mêlée d'irrédentisme, d'ultra-nationalisme et de revanchisme. Si l'ouvrage peut être perçu comme un véritable « livre programme », les chambres à gaz n'y sont cependant pas directement évoquées bien que l'auteur fasse brièvement allusion à ce moyen d'extermination. los angeles rédaction de Mon strive against: Mein Kampf répond à plusieurs motivations de l'auteur : 1.Emprisonné du eleven novembre 1923 au 20 décembre 19243 à los angeles legal de Landsberg à l. a. suite du putsch de l. a. Brasserie, Hitler se despatched trahi. Gouverné par l'émotion et l. a. colère, il cherche un règlement de compte group of workers ; 2.Du fait des avocats qu'il a dû engager pour sa défense, Hitler est criblé de dettes et l. a. views de droits d'auteur n'est pas étrangère à sa démarche d'écriture. 3.Enfin et surtout, Hitler veut s'imposer politiquement et devenir l. a. strength idéologique des milieux nationalistes de son époque. l. a. rédaction d'un texte qu'il conçoit comme un manifeste est pour lui une étape obligée de son parcours politique. Lors de son emprisonnement, Hitler tape son texte sur une Remington ou le dicte à plusieurs de ses camarades emprisonnés, dont Rudolf Hess et Emil Maurice four. Originellement intitulé : Viereinhalb Jahre [des Kampfes] gegen Lüge, Dummheit und Feigheit (« Quatre ans et demi [de lutte] contre les mensonges, los angeles stupidité et l. a. couardise »), l'ouvrage prend son titre définitif : Mein Kampf. Eine Abrechnung (« Mon wrestle. Un bilan ») sur une idée de l'éditeur Max Amann five. Les premiers lecteurs furent les fidèles de Hitler ; le succès du livre auprès des siens motivate Adolf Hitler à rédiger un moment tome. Hitler a quitté l'école très tôt et n'a pas l'habitude d'écrire d'où un variety confus ; l'ensemble est un fatras de choses diverses avec de longues digressions. Pour les commentateurs de l'ouvrage comme l'Institut d'Histoire contemporaine (de) de Munich, le manque de professionnalisme de l'auteur explique aussi pourquoi on a longtemps sous-estimé los angeles nocivité du livre, les passages les plus sulfureux étant noyés dans un ensemble mal rédigé. Mon strive against: Le texte d'origine a ensuite été remanié à plusieurs reprises par l'entourage de Hitler pour lui donner une forme plus cohérente et plus lisible. C'est du moins ce qu'affirme Otto Strasser, dont le frère Gregor Strasser était en détention avec Hitler à Landsberg-am-Lech, dans son ouvrage « Hitler et moi » (Hitler und ich) : « […] Le Père Stempfle […] travailla pendant des mois à mettre en ordre et à lier les pensées exprimées dans Mein Kampf. » Plus loin, le même auteur laisse entendre que Hitler n'aurait « jamais pardonné » à Bernhard Stempfle, qui fut l'une des victimes de l. a. nuit des Longs Couteaux en 1934, d’avoir relevé autant d’insuffisances dans l. a. relecture du manuscrit.
