A novel approach and fascinating new research.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Third Reich: A New History (Paperback)
Burleigh's history of the Third Reich carefully avoids the blow-by-blow immediacy of other classic histories such as Shirer's "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich". Instead, he concerns himself with the psychological landscape of the Reich; the conceits and lies that led a a nation and a continent to the brink of destruction.
Readers who are looking for the whys and wherefores of defeats on the battlefield will not find them here - this is not a simple military history. Readers who are looking for moral insight into why regimes as evil as the Third Reich can develop and thrive will be richly rewarded by a masterful portrait of an evil state.
Never has Arendt's "banality of evil" been better illustrated than in this remarkable book.
A chilling warning of the horrors that complacency, apathy and uncritical acceptance of our political leaders can bring about. A masterpiece.

If Hitler was a bad egg,what does that make Churchill!.You couldnt fit Hitler's empire,which only lasted a couple of year's.On the back of a postage stamp,the real villain's are the world banker's and Oil men.People like the Rockerfellers and the Rothschild's,who funded just about everyone.World war two,was just a stepping stone to world goverment.
