A native of Breckerfeld in Westphalia, he earned his DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2003. Before coming to Aberdeen, Weber held fellowships or taught at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Chicago, and the University of Glasgow. Since joining Aberdeen, Weber has held visiting positions at the Center for European Studies and the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University in 2008/2009 and from 2012 to 2015.

His first book, Lodz Ghetto Album, won a 2004 Golden Light Award and a 2005 Infinity Award. His second book, Our Friend “The Enemy” was the recipient of the 2008 Duc d’Arenberg History Prize for the best book of a general nature, intended for a wide public, on the history and culture of the European continent. His third book, Hitler's First War, was published in English by Oxford University Press in 2010, as well as in eight other languages. It is the recipient of the 2010 Arthur Goodzeit Book Award of the New York Military Affairs Symposium for the best book on military history.  It is also being adapted into a TV mini series by UFA-Fiction and Beta Film. His latest book, Becoming Hitler: The Making of a Nazi , was published in 2017.
