There have been many histories of World War II and many analyses of the Third Reich, but few show what it was actually like to live under the Nazi regime. Inside Hitler's Germany attempts just that. Beginning with an examination of the early thirties, before the full horrors at the heart of the regime were evident, this extensively illustrated book looks at all aspects of life under Hitler's government.

    Really poor!

    The book is not too original. It features entire passages copied literally from Kershaw's video series 'The Nazis: A Warning from History' (produced by A&E and the History Channel) without the proper footnote to indicate the source. Instead they only listed some books in the last pages for 'further reading'. Also I found at least 2 misstatements -one of them really serious- and informed the authors directly with the correspondent proof to substantiate my claim. They haven¿t answer about it. The only good thing about the book is its pictorial content.
