A Brief History of the Third Reich: The Rise and Fall of the Nazis: Brief Histories | [Martyn Whittock]

A Brief History of the Third Reich: The Rise and Fall of the Nazis: Brief Histories

Beginning in the broken aftermath of the First World War and the Treaty of Versailles, which made German recovery almost impossible, Whittock tells not just the account of the men who rose to the fore in the dangerous days of the Weimar republic, circling around the cult of personality generated by Adolf Hitler, but also a convincing and personality-driven overview of how ordinary Germans became seduced by the dreams of a new world order, the Third Reich.

Publisher's Summary

Beginning in the broken aftermath of the First World War and the Treaty of Versailles, which made German recovery almost impossible, Whittock tells not just the account of the men who rose to the fore in the dangerous days of the Weimar republic, circling around the cult of personality generated by Adolf Hitler, but also a convincing and personality-driven overview of how ordinary Germans became seduced by the dreams of a new world order, the Third Reich. The book also gives a fascinating insight into the everyday life in Germany during the Second World War and explores key questions such as how much did the Germans know about the Holocaust and why did the regime eventually fail so disastrously?

    "It hits the major points without bogging down"
    What did you love best about A Brief History of the Third Reich: The Rise and Fall of the Nazis?

    This was a very good listen while I was working. It hits all the major points without bogging down in details. What was really refreshing was the amount of time spent on the rise to power, which was well over half the book. World War II is covered, but the battles are given minimal coverage. The focus, from start to finish, is on the state and it's people. I found the recording of jokes overheard by the Gestapo a very nice touch, as it is something not found in most other sources.
