This is one of the books on my library bucket list. I was pleasantly taken aback by the new information of history I thought I knew. I'm not a historian by any measure but I have an interest. Important history told as a great story.
Honest impressions of the authored commend to all who want to understand this era in history
The book is touching, informing, and entertaining. Truly a masterpiece. I know feel like I have a much better grasp on the rise and fall of the third Reich. Although it's a topic that one could spend a lot of time studying, this is an incredible book to give someone a good idea of everything that happened on a higher level, with many interesting and helpful details.
I will. The story itself is beyond summary. There is so much depth to it and the narrative is compelling.
The rise of Hitler. It was so improbable.
I have not.
When the author's mask would slip and he was unable to mask his contempt for this or that person.
Much of the style is dated, but it adds to an authenticity to the time. This is a story, not a dry recollection of dates. The author clearly tries to be impersonal but the times and people are so extraordinarily evil... The authenticity of the book is remarkable, informative, and impactful.
An excellent book that explains a challenging history in simple terms for the listener. There is also a lot of detail for the serious history buff. A great work!
This is a master work of historical information. Well thought out, well performed, and well footnoted.
Should be required reading for every human.
Some outdated and offensive views on sexuality, but otherwise an incredible account of Hitler's inner circle from the beginning to the end of the Third Reich, based on primary sources, from an author who lived through it.
