“The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”: Book review

“Perhaps it will help too if the erring governments and the wondering people of this world will remember the dark night of Nazi terror and genocide that almost engulfed our world and that is the subject of this book. Remembrance of the past helps us to understand the present.”
William L. Shirer’s 1,500 page “Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” is one of the most intense and thorough books on the subject, drawing on thousands of pages of captured documents, on testimony and records from the post-war trials, on memoirs and diaries, and on his own experiences living in Germany as a correspondent during the Third Reich.
Compelling and riveting, this is important reading material for any students of history and its danger of cycling back around again.
