    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    "A must-have!"
    Overall

    I read this book from an old edition some years ago and the audiobool is really great also. Hours and hours of immersive 'reading' and learning about how Hitler rose to power and became master of Germany and Europe. The audio version is really nice. A true classic well reproduced in audio. Thumbs up!

  • Vietnam: A History

    In this comprehensive history, Stanley Karnow demystifies the tragic ordeal of America's war in Vietnam. The book's central theme is that America's leaders, prompted as much by domestic politics as by global ambitions, carried the United States into Southeast Asia with little regard for the realities of the region. Karnow elucidates the decision-making process in Washington and Asia and recounts the political and military events that occurred after the Americans arrived in Vietnam.

    David Ewing says: "As stunning as it was engaging"
    "Unbiased history of the Vietnam Conflict"

    Story
    What did you love best about Vietnam?

    The book offer a vietnamese perspective of the conflict from both North and South. It is not an all-american centered book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    President Lindon Johnson is a very complex characther - as most people are - and acted under extreme pressure and was influenced by many different and conflicting interests in the US and Vietnam, but ultimately he was responsible for the American policy towards Vietnam and the escalation of the conflict.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is no specific scene do comment on in this book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It offers a deep insight on rhe nature of conflicts and how interests move histpry more than beliefs. It is very hard for leaders not to compromise or take different courses to remain on power or to achieve part of what they believe to be right.
