Description - The Nazis by Laurence Rees
This is a ground-breaking account of the rise and fall of the Third Reich. Laurence Rees, who also wrote and produced the accompanying BAFTA-winning BBC TV series, describes how the Nazis rose to power, provides chilling details about life in Nazi Germany, and explodes the popular myths surrounding Adolf Hitler, the Party's charismatic leader. At the core of the book lie compelling eyewitness accounts from those who experienced this regime at every level of society; many of those interviewed were committed Nazis who only felt free to tell their story after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Communism throughout Europe. THE NAZIS- A WARNING FROM HISTORY sheds new light on the causes of the worst conflict the world has ever known and the personal experiences of those involved. This dramatic and incredible story once read, is not easily forgotten.
