Product description

Review

"Of all the biographers and writers on the Third Reich, Joachim Fest was not only good at his craft, but also had the good fortune to be invited to act, as her describes it, as ′interrogating editor′ for the best selling autobiography of Albert Speer. What he has done is to create the literary equivalent of a fly–on–the–wall documentary."
The Spokesman

"These conversations will be indispensable for specialists in the history of the Third Reich and fascism."
Political Studies Review

"In its poignancy, this book gives remarkable insights into three men: Hitler, as a consummate manipulator of people; Speer, as not particularly bright but vainglorious, weak, unremarkable and very lonely; and, not least, Fest himself, who proves tenacious and resourceful. He has convinced me with a work of brilliant analysis: the best study of Speer I know."
Michael H. Kater, York University, Toronto

"These diary–type notes by Joachim Fest, bestselling historian of the Third Reich, of his extensive conversations with Albert Speer make truly absorbing reading."
V.R. Berghahn, Columbia University

From the Back Cover

Albert Speer remains the most mysterious character of the leadership of the Nazi regime. He was the chief architect of the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler s confidant. Speer built the Reichskanzlei (official offices), discovered the Lightdome and was finally, in 1942, named as the minister for arms. But he characterised himself as apolitical, called Hitler s hatred of Jews an anomaly, and the conspirators of the 20th July placed Speer s name on their cabinet list.

Joachim Fest helped Albert Speer to draft his memoirs and the Spandau diaries. Between 1966 and 1981 they conducted numerous detailed conversations whose content (and at times exact wording) Joachim Fest recorded in writing after the event. The records captured in this manner are now published for the first time in this book and they provide a unique portrait of Albert Speer of the man, his thinking and his role in the Nazi regime. They are an important contribution to understanding the psychology of the national socialist leadership and at the same time a significant document of history.
