Publisher's Summary

American journalist and author William L. Shirer was a war correspondent for six years in Nazi Germany, having a front-row seat to Hitler’s rise in influence and power. His most definitive work on the subject, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, is a riveting account of life in the tyrannical state, a country transformed by war and dictatorship.

The author was originally commissioned to write The Rise and Fall of Adolf Hitler for a young adult audience. This account loses none of the immediacy of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich - capturing Hitler’s prominence in public cognizance, the horror of mass killings, and the paranoia and insanity that marked the führer’s downfall. This book is by no means simplified - and is sure to appeal to anybody with an interest in World War II history.
