By J. E. Parry VINE VOICE on 27 Mar. 2007
Format: Paperback
This is a great study of the life and work of the Nazi Minister for Propaganda. We follow his life from his beginnings in the Rhineland through his university years and onto his political life. What strikes you most is the fact that he was fighting from his earliest years against the crippling effects of Polio. Yet throughout everything he never lost sight of his aim to be someone important.

In his early life he wanted to be a writer. Unfortunately he was not able to get his work published and had interviews for journalism posts turned down. It was lucky for him that he found a position in the Gau office for the Rhineland. From there his rise for quick and spectacular.

He soon gained the attention of Hitler who recognised some raw briliance in his organisational and speaking abilities. He was then launched on the road to notoriety and death. He was always an anti-Semite, after all it was Jews who prevented him from becoming a great writer. They therefore drew his anger and ridicule from then on.

We follow his rise to power and the important role that he played in turning around the fortunes of the Party in Berlin and then his manipulation of the media to help push the Nazis into power. He is the person who helped to make political campaigning what it is today - not a very good thing to say I know.

After the ascension to power Goebbels' career went from strength to strength until his affair with a Czech actress almost destroyed it. He was an very ambitious and power hungry man and this is shown throughout the book. he dispised many of his fellow Nazis and wanted more and more power but was not granted it until 1944. By then it was too late for him to save the German military machine.

Ive taken a long while to read this, but worth the effort. Ive read most of the Nazi leaders stories now and need to read some lighter subject matter, but this one not the worst account of an evil regime, but an awful insight into how the propaganda manipulated Germany and the outside world.

A fascinating and detailed study of this character from start to finish in this excellent book
Highly recommend this read I could not divert to read anything else as every page drew you into the story of the rise and fall of one of Hitler's Henchmen .

I have read more scholarly works on the role of top Nazi leaders but this one was reasonably well written and a good insight into one of the top leaders in Nazi Germany.

He was very evil, and makes Hiltler look less so!! Very interesting reading, and sheds more light on the inside happenings of the time.

An extraordinary story, well worth reading, both as a biography and and as a history of the time in which Goebbels flourished.
