If you are looking for a behind the scenes, personal look into the world of nazi Germany, this is the book for you. The author did more then his homework and gives references throughout the series. Very good book, I recommended for the strong willed.
This audiobook is 57 hours of history. All of it informative.
One thing that caught my eye was the treatment of the universities in Nazi Germany. the first thing Hitler did after taking power was to clean the University of anyone opposed to Nazism. then to systematically indoctrinate students to the Nazi Doctrine. we've all heard of how the Nazis burn books. But have many of us heard that it wasn't Nazi Stormtroopers doing the burning. it was the indoctrinated student themselves who decided there was nothing to be learned from any book that did not follow Nazi Doctrine. indoctrination works with little skulls full of mush.
I am not so shallow as to compare liberals to Nazis. I'll leave that to liberals. But indoctrination of college students by liberals in the United States is just as effective as Nazi indoctrination in Germany. It's one-sided and it's False.
Another lesson that stands out clearly is appeasement and leading from behind is a fool's errand. Thank God our fool only has another week in office.
This book is a slog, but extremely informative. it focuses mostly on the more technical side of the Third Reich -- diplomatic relations, etc than on actual battle details, which can we tedious at times. But overall, it's worth your time.
A genuine work of historical devotion and classical values that transcends time. And should be a gem for personal research and also true entertainment for any enthusiasts of historical events that involves human social movement. A momentous event like the facts behind the tragedy of the second world war. And which should be a lesson for mankind in order to avoid a repeat of such a mistake ever repeating itself in the future.
A surprisingly enjoyable telling of such a horrible period in human history. Don't be intimidated by the length of the book, it's told in a fast enough pace to keep you consistently interested and riveted on the dark and sorted tale of the Nazi rise and fall.
The details of events and character description make for some of the best non-fiction narrative ever written. I feel as though I've met Hitler and his henchmen in person and could predict their words and actions if they were alive today. Their stories are chilling and instructional. May we recognize the signs and act much quicker.
just finished and I know I'll need to go over it a few more times to even take in the timeline.
