Redlich labels Hitler a "destructive prophet," and Hitler considered himself to be the Messiah. He wrote his manifesto, Mein Kampf(9), while in Landsberg prison. He shares his literary use of prison time with other writers such as Saint Paul, Seneca, Cervantes, Bunyon, Voltaire, Dostoevsky, Solzhenitsyn, Martin Luther King, and Iceberg Slim (Robert Beck). Prison has a way of focusing the mind and allowing the lost to find their way. Little is made of this book, in which Hitler set forth his anti-Semitic and anti-Communist paranoia and his plan for racial "purification" through eugenics.
