An icon of true evil, Adolf Hitler is arguably the most important figure of the twentieth century. No one has so patently demonstrated the horrific capabilities of mankind. In Hitler: The Terminal Biography, D. Harlan Wilson tracks the life of the infamous monomaniac from struggling artist to mass murderer. Based on more than ten years of archival research and German sociological study, this one-volume account covers ground previously uncharted by other biographers, drawing heavily on newfound diaries, letters, memos, and phonograph recordings of Hitler’s closest confidants as well as the Führer himself.

Book 1 of The Biographizer Trilogy

“An extraordinary and masterful work. Wilson has written the biography to end all biographies.” —Gideon Johnson Pillow, Professor of History and Chair of African American Studies at the University of Fostoria

"This is not a book. It is an algorithm. D. Harlan Wilson’s trilogy of Hitler: The Terminal Biography, Freud: The Penultimate Biography and Douglass: The Lost Autobiography are Magrittesque artifacts. Certainly not biographies in the conventional sense of the genre, these titles may not be, strictly, books, whatever those are these days. They are experiments in deconstructing the supposedly cynical matrices of literature in the Internet age, where units are defined and shifted algorithmically, by guilty—sometimes arbitrary—associations with other books." The Rumpus

"This biographical non-biography is a fantastic (and here you can apply all the meanings of that word), funny, smart, self-referencing meta-narrative. It’s everything a book shouldn’t be, and it’s a great read because of it." Verbicide Magazine

"The Biographizer Trilogy is like a series of magic tricks that the magician painstakingly explains, but which nevertheless still dazzle the audience and retain an element of mystery. Meanwhile, as Wilson is explaining his tricks, he’s also stealing your wallet. He’s pulling moves we’re not even aware of until the aftermath." —Book Riot

"Not only is this THE perfect biography of Adolf Hitler, it is also an explosive trek inside the mind of a most complex author and teacher at the University of Fostoria." —Jamie Grefe, author of The Mondo Vixen Massacre

"Just as a reader picks up a copy of A Clockwork Orange and begins to think in terms of the language Burgess uses, so too will the reader become invested in the language and depiction of the author/persona in Hitler: The Terminal Biography [which] serves as a cynical perspective on reality and fiction; this book shows us that the reality of the self is the only reality." —Vincenzo Bilof, author of The Horror Show
