Format: Paperback
I've been reading about the Third Reich for many years, on and off, and this is one of the most authoritative and well-written accounts of the middle to late Thirties in Nazi Germany I've come across.
Evans manages to pack each page with daily detail of the lives of the people, the shenanigans of Party members, the sheer dirty dealing and downhanded nastiness of the regime and still manages to make it entirely readable. He is to be congratulated on his writing style, for he makes it easy to read and digest such detail without putting the book down out of sheer boredom or falling asleep, unlike so many other historical writers.
I look forward to the third volume in the series.

Format: Hardcover
The second volume of this trilogy fully maintains the excellent standard of the first. It covers the period from when the Nazis came to power in 1933 to the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939.
While all the familiar foreign policy developments are there, the book's real focus is on life for the German people during the period. This covers, in a very comprehensive way, all levels, schools, the arts, leisure, work etc, and those the Nazis saw as enemies or dispensable. It is of course grim in many places. The author lets facts speak for themselves and writes in a very clear style aimed at the general reader rather than the specialist.
The final volume will cover the remainder of the era of the Third Reich till Germany (along with much of Europe around it) lay in ruins in 1945 and will, I am sure, be grimmer still.

I am an A-level student who just took the exam for the 'Life in Hitler's Germany 1933-1939' module. My teacher is not the best in the world and so when I bought this book I was looking for an authorative, interesting and accessible text. I found it.

Firstly, there is no need to worry if you hadn't read the companion book 'The Comming of the Third Reich' as what you need to know is nicely summed up in a prologue. 'The Third Reich In Power' manages to cover the social aspects of the Third Reich, and along the way gives an idea of the political structure of the Nazi reigme. There is a intensely satisfying attention to detail in Evans' book which clarifies a lot of things which you may not realise you don't know the actual specifics of. The level of analysis is very high, which is both objective and offers the author's personal conclusions. The level of research comes through with the sheer amount of sources/maps included, as well as relevant figures and satistics. This may alienate some more casual readers but I found you can take or skip-over detail acording to need/interest.

What is perhaps most enjoyable about this book is the fact that alongide the conventional important facts are also stimulating sections that I didn't expect, these include looks at the indvidual lives on people under the Third Reich that reveals a lot about the time and even a section looking at the kind of dreams and nightmares the German people had during Nazi rule. These sections are much more relevant than they sound, and it was refreshing and engaging to find them here.

At the begining I called this text accessible, and it is, but remember this is not a revision guide.
