Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 16 Mar 2012
Quite simply,this book is,in my opinion,the best work of literature on the Third Reich. Well written and researched by an author who actually lived and worked in Germany at the time of the events being described. Mr Shirer explains in great detail how Hitler managed to attain power using democratic methods. When reading this book you will become frighteningly aware of how easy it is for a Government to control it's populace using 'security measures to protect them'. Something we are all seeing today. Although a long read it is never difficult to understand the events being written about due to Mr Shirer's skills as an author. This book is a must buy.
