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.Read more ›
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 .
