It is wonderfully written and well researched. I have read it so often that the original book has disintegrated. This Kindle Edition is well put together.
I thoroughly recommend it.
Of course, it only recounts the entire history of the Nazi party to a certain level of detail. So many years, which included a world conflict, can only be covered in detail by other works that focus purely on a few aspects of the party/war. Nevertheless, I cannot praise this book enough.
On reading the book (a rich 1200 pages!) one wonders whether it should not have been called "The Rise and the Fall of Adolf Hitler" for it centers around Hitler and his generals and seems to almost forget Goering, Goebbels, Himmler and other Nazi leaders after their initial appearances. A central conclusion from the book is, no doubt, that the Third Reich and World War2 would not have come about were it not for this one man - Adolf Hitler. All the other players in Shirer's story pale into insignificance beside the genius, charisma, madness, vision, evil, manipulativeness, leadership and single-mindedness of the one man. The only other "heros" of the book, although not covered in great detail, are Stalin and, rather more so, Churchill whose vision, inspiration and leadership changed the course of history.
[Reviewer's personal note: WW2 and the Holocaust are themes of enormous importance to me personally.Read more ›
