Publisher's Summary

In this powerful audiobook, first published in 1943, Amy Buller recounts the hopes and fears of Germans engulfed in the rise of fascism during the 1930s. 

During the years leading up to the outbreak of war, Buller defied her critics and social norms by leading delegations of British intelligentsia to Germany to learn about and confront the appeal of the Nazis. 

The audiobook speaks of how Hitler and the Nazis stripped the German people of their freedoms and oppressed them and how young people were swept along with the tide of hate. It tells the stories of the Germans whom Buller met, including their positivity about the forces uniting the country and their terror that Hitler was the man at the helm. 

Darkness over Germany is Amy Buller's recollection of these unlikely encounters and her analysis of how national socialism took hold. It tells a remarkable and largely forgotten story of British-German relations in the 1930s. The book speaks resonantly of the need to stay vigilant and maintain dialogue in times of change and discord.

A message worth reviewing

This book is a fascinating glimpse into what transpired in the hearts and minds of Germans as Hitler and the Nazis rose to power. I found myself relating it to our current political environment in some ways, and found some stories that offered me the chance of introspection on my own ideals. The author is good, though a bit dramatic at times. This book is definitely worth a listen.

Welsh accents? Scouse accents? Ridiculous. Ruins an amazing story

The ridiculous use of scouse and welsh accents ruins this absolute bombshell of a perspective of a many told period.
