If you want the truth, details, facts as to what appears to be and what really is get this book. You shouldn't see our govt in the same light again. For the deniers out there this book tackles the fallacy that our two party system is for anything other than growing govt. gaining and holding power.
Bonhoeffer had everything to live for, His family had all the connections needed to secure him a comfortable life without worry. He chose an education in Theology at age 12, step by step he examines the questions of God, Christ and the Holy Bible from an academics perspective. As he moved through his education and the historical occurrances of Europe (Nazi's and Hitler) you laugh with him and cry as well at the love and conviction he developed along his short but fulfilling life. On a side note if you believe in Christ and have questions due to a number of reasons or if you want perspective to solidify your faith read this now and buy a hard copy for your home library as well. You'll read it again.
Fabulous, wonderfully detailed historical accounts first hand. Relive our past, learn what govt education hasn't schooled you about.
The Author, shifted through 485 tons of Reich records, personal diaries, telephone logs and more to take you step by step exactly how this Nazi enterprise sprouted, took root and grew. Also, demostrating the gullibilities of democratic and monarchial governments. Hitler was a master at reading the lay of the political landscape, exploiting every opportunity he created or observed. To sum it up, Brilliant expose` of the Nazi Reich's Rise and Fall. I am still stunned by this intense exposure to "man's" darkest character, I'll never see politicians, persons of ambition or govt as harmless again. G. Washington said; "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." Absolute power corrupts absolutely. The German Generals had many opportunities to take Hitler out in the late thirties, all were held back by their personal ambitions and addiction to the euphoria enveloping them. Until Col. Claus Von Stauffenberg came along. Worth every minute of your time.
Learning about GW I would recommend the book.
The Author on the other hand continues to pass on dispersions on Jefferson regarding his/TJ's "Slave" children myth originating from the mid 1990's by faulting research with a left leaning agenda. This "research" was quietly rescinded yet never heralded by the media whom originally touted the research as evidence of some character flaw. So most have yet to hear the truth regarding the issue.
However, the letters and first person accounts are great!
One can not argue with original sourcing, can't hide truths either. Very revealing. Want the truth get this book.
