    Who were the Gestapo officers? Were they merely banal paper shufflers, or were they recognizably evil? Were they motivated by an eliminationist anti-Semitism? Did the average German know about the mass murder of Jews and other undesirables while they were happening? Exactly how was Nazi terror applied in the daily lives of ordinary Jews and Germans? Eric A. Johnson answers these questions as he explores the roles of the individual and of society in making terror work.

    Overall

    The narrator reads too quickly and his delivery is in an awkward high speed monotone without proper sentence pacing. The writing is also questionable, for example, content about Gestapo agents comes out like someone reading the agents' day planner, and quite boring. I would refer an interested listener to William L. Shirer's 'The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich' for a more comprehensive, more engaging, and better referenced book on the subject.
