Book Details

Format: EPUB

Page count: 992 pages

Protection: DRM

Language: English

In this riveting book, Michael Burleigh sets Nazi Germany in a European context, showing how the Third Reich’s abandonment of liberal democracy, decency and tolerance was widespread in the Europe of the period. He shows how a radical, pseudo-religious movement, led by an oddity with dazzling demagogic talents, seemed to offer salvation to a German exhausted by war, depression and galloping inflation. ‘This is a monumental book.’ Richard Overy, Sunday Telegraph ‘If I had to recommend one book on the Third Reich, this would be it.’ Daniel Johnson, Daily Telegraph ‘It is a breathtaking achievement, at once broader and deeper than any other single volume ever published on the subject. Indeed I would go further: it is the product of authentic historical genius.’ Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times ‘Happily, Michael Burleigh now fills that bibliographical gap, with a readable and highly knowledgeable account of that ghastly period. You will never be bored by this extraordinary book.’ Andrew Roberts, Mail on Sunday
