From the Publisher"Of all the biographers and writers on the Third Reich, JoachimFest was not only good at his craft, but also had the good fortuneto be invited to act, as her describes it, as 'interrogatingeditor' for the best selling autobiography of Albert Speer. What hehas done is to create the literary equivalent of a fly-on-the-walldocumentary."
"These conversations will be indispensable for specialists inthe history of the Third Reich and fascism."
Political Studies Review
"In its poignancy, this book gives remarkable insights intothree men: Hitler, as a consummate manipulator of people; Speer, asnot particularly bright but vainglorious, weak, unremarkable andvery lonely; and, not least, Fest himself, who proves tenacious andresourceful. He has convinced me with a work of brilliant analysis:the best study of Speer I know."
Michael H. Kater, York University, Toronto
"These diary-type notes by Joachim Fest, bestselling historianof the Third Reich, of his extensive conversations with AlbertSpeer make truly absorbing reading."
