Their Darkest Hour by Laurence Rees
Book DescriptionHow could Nazi killers shoot Jewish women and children at close range? Why did Japanese soldiers rape and murder on such a horrendous scale? How was it possible to endure the torment of a Nazi concentration camp? Award-winning documentary maker and historian Laurence Rees has spent nearly 20 years wrestling with these questions in the course of filming hundreds of interviews with people tested to the extreme during World War II. He has come face-to-face with rapists, mass murderers, even cannibals, but he has also met courageous individuals who are an inspiration to us all. In Their Darkest Hour he presents 35 of his most electrifying encounters.

Dark Charisma of Adolf Hitler, Paperback (June 2013)
Adolf Hitler was an unlikely leader - fuelled by hate, incapable of forming normal human relationships, unwilling to debate political issues - and yet he commanded enormous support. So how was it possible that Hitler became such an attractive figure to millions of people?
Horror in the East, Paperback (July 2011)
Traces the shift in the Japanese national psyche - from the civil and reasoned treatment of captured German prisoners in the First World War to the rejection of Western values and brutalization of the armed forces in the years that followed.
