Review

Praise for "Goebbels"

"Peter Longerich . . . has delved into rarely accessed material from his subject's diaries, which span thirty years, to paint a remarkable portrait of the man who became one of Hitler's most trusted lieutenants."--"The Daily Telegraph"

Praise for "Heinrich Himmler"

"There have been several studies of this enigmatic man, but Peter Longerich's massive biography, grounded in exhaustive study of the primary sources, is now the standard work and must stand alongside Ian Kershaw's "Hitler, "Ulrich Herbert's "Best" and Robert Gerwarth's "Hitler's Hangman: The Life of Heydrich" as one of the landmark Nazi biographies. As the author of a celebrated study of the Holocaust, Longerich is better able than his predecessors to situate Himmler within the vast machinery of genocide. And he brings to his task a gift for capturing those mannerisms that are the intimate markers of personality."--"London Review of Books"

"[An] excellent and comprehensive biography."--"The New York Review of Books"

"Supremely enlightening."--"The New York Times"

"Admirably thorough and packed with facts . . . Students of World War II will likely find this the last word on its immediate subject."--"Kirkus Reviews"

"Splendid . . . Longerich gives [Himmler's biography] a depth and breadth it has previously lacked."--"The Daily Telegraph"

"[An] epically gripping portrait."--"The Independent"
