5.0 out of 5 stars Goebbels both right and wrong
An extraordinary book. Strange the way in which such detailed analysis of events could be recorded by one who must have known that he was doomed. A strange mixture of realistic appraisal of events with short bursts of totally unrealistic assessments. Everyone who doubts the value of the bomber command contribution to the victory in WW2 should read these diaries. It is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Perverted view of the 3rd Reich from within.
Final Entries 1945: The Diaries of Joseph Goebbels

An intelligent man, so well informed about the Western powers. His twisted view of events matching his mind and body. Amazingly accurate with forecasts of forthcoming events.Gripping portrayal of venom against his own side. The fate he gave his children,wife and himself almost unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goebbels both right and wrong, 7 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An extraordinary book. Strange the way in which such detailed analysis of events could be recorded by one who must have known that he was doomed. A strange mixture of realistic appraisal of events with short bursts of totally unrealistic assessments. Everyone who doubts the value of the bomber command contribution to the victory in WW2 should read these diaries. It is clear that Goebbels felt that the bombing war was the overwhelming reason that Germany was unable to fight back effectively. When one observes how incredibly tough the German army was despite this it is clear that thousands of allied lives were saved as a result. An odd feature of Goebbels is how he cannot connect this bombing with that perpetrated by the Germans in the early phases in the war and totally vindicates Harris's observation that 'the Germans entered this war in the naive belief that they could bomb others with impunity while considering themselves exempt from this'. The value of this type of diary is that it is written on a day by day basis with no benefit of hindsight. The problems that pursue the allies after the war as a result of the decisions of Yalta are very accurately forecast by Goebbels. His and Hitler's mistake was to believe that the western allies would act in their own self interest as the Nazis themselves would do and recognise that their major enemy at that point in History was Stalin and his empire - they did not of course and this opened the story of the next 44 years of European history!
