If you are interested in "social history" or what life was like living in Nazi Germany, than this book is a good jumping off point. The book is very well written, covers an array of differing topics, and is extremely well illustrated with numerous photographs, many of which I'd never seen before.
The content of the book itself is very good. I am a slow reader, but found myself reading a chapter a day. It features chapters on the war, economics, genocide, how the Nazis were formed and came to power, resistance movements, youth organizations, women in the Reich, and a brief bio of Hitler. The book does a good job of giving a general history of the war itself, but never straying too far from the point of the book--describing life in Nazi Germany. The book even features a two page glossary at the end with some definitions of terms. Overall, it is a wonderful read and is an excellent introdcution to life in Germany.
However, it does not get 5 stars for two reasons. First, as mentioned by a previous reviewer, I found the last chapter somewhat curious as the authors spent several pages quoting German soldiers who were captured by the Russians, but were treated well, which was not the norm. Then, they spent just a couple paragraphs describing the more common experience of being sent to gulags and not returning to Germany for several years, if at all. Second, although the authors obviously did a thorough amount of research, there are no footnotes, no endnotes, no bibliography page. As someone who received a B.A. in history, I was always taught to cite everything and the authors do not do this, which is frustrating because it does not allow the reader to verify their facts or to read further based upon their research.
