Read full description of the books:
This remarkable book is a readable, percipient and closely documented history of the Third Reich. It is also the personal story of Adolf Hitler; for Hitler and the monstrous Reich he created rose and fell together.
For only 12 years did the Fuehrer rule Germany. In that brief time he made the greatest, most destructive war in history, and extended the frontiers of his domain from the Artic tip of Norway to Stalingrad on the Volga, from the Pyrenees to the gates of Cairo.
The author tells the story from its beginnings. Everything is recorded in the most telling detail; from the early days in Vienna to the Beer Hall Putsch in Munich and, in 1933, the seizure of power from the aged Hindenburg.
This tremendous work, based on voluminous captured documents never before fully analysed for the public, records one of the most appalling chapters in the history of mankind. And it exposes, as never before, the true and terrible nature of dictatorship.

Read information about the authorWilliam Lawrence Shirer was an American journalist and historian. He became known for his broadcasts on CBS from the German capital of Berlin through the first year of World War II.
Shirer first became famous through his account of those years in his Berlin Diary (published in 1941), but his greatest achievement was his 1960 book, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, originally published by Simon & Schuster. This book of well over 1000 pages is still in print, and is a detailed examination of the Third Reich filled with historical information from German archives captured at the end of the war, along with impressions Shirer gained during his days as a correspondent in Berlin. Later, in 1969, his work The Collapse of the Third Republic drew on his experience spent living and working in France from 1925 to 1933. This work is filled with historical information about the Battle of France from the secret orders and reports of the French High Command and of the commanding generals of the field. Shirer also used the memoirs, journals, and diaries of the prominent British, Italian, Spanish, and French figures in government, Parliament, the Army, and diplomacy.
