Overview

American journalist and author William L. Shirer was a correspondent for six years in Nazi Germany—and had a front-row seat for Hitler's rise to power. His most definitive work on the subject, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, is a riveting account defined by first-person experience interviewing Hitler, watching his impassioned speeches, and living in a country transformed by war and dictatorship.

William Shirer was originally commissioned to write The Rise and Fall of Adolf Hitler for a young adult audience. This account loses none of the immediacy of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich—capturing Hitler's rise from obscurity, the horror of Nazi Germany's mass killings, and the paranoia and insanity that marked Hitler's downfall. This book is by no means simplified—and is sure to appeal to adults as well as young people with an interest in World War II history.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

William Lawrence Shirer (1904-1993) was an American war correspondent, historian, and author of The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich—a definitive account of Nazi Germany that has stood the test of time as a scholarly resource for over five decades. Shirer was the first journalist hired for Edward R. Murrow's CBS radio team of journalists covering World War II events worldwide, and later became famous for his radio broadcasts from Berlin.

Shirer's work is gripping for its first-hand immediacy, informed by personal observation, storytelling, and interviews with prominent leaders including Hitler himself. As a member of CBS's news team, he produced a 30-minute broadcast of live reporting from Vienna, Paris, Berlin, London, and Rome. This was later adopted as the CBS World News Roundup, one of the longest-running programs in news broadcasting today.

    Adolf Hitler was a dangerous megalomaniac, from the time of his

    Adolf Hitler was a dangerous megalomaniac, from the time of his youth he was violent and argumentative with his father.His book Mein Kampf was a blue print of what was to happen but no one took notice. As the years past he took massive amounts of medication for his nervous tensions that eventually led to his downfall and death.

    This author has heard speeches made by Hitler's and more info from secret documents that were found. I enjoyed reading about more of Hitler's life.

    The Rise and Fall of Adolf Hitler is a book about Adolf Hitler's

    The Rise and Fall of Adolf Hitler is a book about Adolf Hitler's life and how he gained power. It describes his family relationships from childhood and even his love life. It goes into detail with how he came to and lost power. From the moment he steps into office to the moment of his death. It is a good book to read because it gives details about WWII and is readable for any age groups. You should read this if you have interest in Adolf Hitler, WWII or the events that happened during WWII because of Hitler. Also The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is another great book about Adolf Hitler and goes into extreme depth in his life.

    History book for school age person

    I read this book when I was in the 6th grade, many years ago. It was the 1st book of history that I had read for pleasure. It told the story of Hitler and the 3rd Reich. It is written in an understandable form for a 6th grader.

    blown away by excitement

    a very well written book. I recommend this to and more mature reader due to the fact that there are adult themes. I found the book to be very informational yet interesting at the same time. It had alot of facts that a reader that was interested in WW1 would be shocked to have learned.
