The rise and fall of the Third Reich [a history of Nazi Germany]

William L. 1904-1993 Shirer

Sound recording - 2010

The rise and fall of the Third Reich offers an examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. Shirer's account of the pivotal characters and events of that critical era benefits from his many years as a reporter and his own personal recollections, as well as from the mass of historical documents retrieved from the German Foreign Office. The result is this account of how Hitler wrested political control of Germany and managed to take the country with him on his mad... six-year quest for world domination, only to see it go down in flames in the end.

Review by Publisher Summary 2

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 twentieth 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.Shirer's unforgettable account of the pivotal characters and events of that critical era benefits from his many years as a reporter and his own personal recollections, as well as from the mass of historical documents retrieved from the German Foreign Office. The result is a brutally objective account of how Hitler wrested political control of Germany and managed to take the country with him on his mad six-year quest for world domination, only to see it go down in flames in the end.
