London: A rare English translation of Adolf Hitler’s notorious book ‘Mein Kampf’ is expected to rake in 1,500 pounds at an auction.

The book, which is part of a private collection, will be sold by Mullock’s at Ludlow, Shropshire, on 17th November, the Daily Express reported.

It was circulated at a Prisoners of War (PoW) camp in an attempt to convert Allied prisoners to fascism, and only one similar edition is thought to exist.

‘Mein Kampf’ combines the elements of the Nazi leader’s autobiography with an exposition of his political ideology.
