This is a superb book and a fine companion piece to RJ Evans first work in this trio. It is an once utterly engaging and terrifying when one sees the true callous nature of those in power.
It's true genius is the narrative flow and the clarity brought to the governance of a nation once revered for it's poets and thinkers.
I eagerly await the final book, The Third Reich At War.
Evans is brilliant.

My son requested this book as a Christmas preent and that was why it was purchased. Arrived on time, excellent condition and packaging. I can not comment on the book as it was not for me.

Very detailed and extensively researched work.
One chapter in particular I found fascinating - examining the association between the Nazi party and Classical music - obviously Richard Wagner is the most notable name-check here. Absorbing to read which composers were officially endorsed and the ones that were 'black listed' by The Third Reich.
A good read for dark days.
