Overview

The final volume in Richard J. Evans's masterly trilogy on the history of Nazi Germany traces the rise and fall of German military might, the mobilization of a 'people's community' to serve a war of conquest, and Hitler's campaign of racial subjugation and genocide

Already hailed as 'a masterpiece' (William Grimes in The New York Times) and 'the most comprehensive history' of the Third Reich? (Ian Kershaw), this epic trilogy reaches its terrifying climax in this volume.

Evans interweaves a broad narrative of the war's progress with viscerally affecting personal testimony from a wide range of people-from generals to front-line soldiers, from Hitler Youth activists to middle-class housewives. The Third Reich at War lays bare the dynamics of a nation more deeply immersed in war than any society before or since. Fresh insights into the conflict's great events are here, from the invasion of Poland to the Battle of Stalingrad to Hitler's suicide in the bunker. But just as important is the re-creation of the daily experience of ordinary Germans in wartime, staggering under pressure from Allied bombing and their own government's mounting demands upon them. At the center of the book is the Nazi extermination of Europe's Jews, set in the context of Hitler's genocidal plans for the racial restructuring of Europe.

Blending narrative, description and analysis, The Third Reich at War creates an engrossing picture-at once sweeping and precise-of a society rushing headlong to self-destruction and taking much of Europe with it. It is the culmination of a historical masterwork that will remain the most authoritative work on Nazi Germany for years to come.

    Excellent account of the Nazis' role in the Second World War

    This magnificent book completes Evans¿ trilogy on the Third Reich. It covers all aspects of the war including the home front: morale, the role of women, the effect of the bombing, food, wages and conditions. He also examines the roles of the air force, navy and army, and gives us shrewd portraits of the leading personalities in the Nazi state.<BR/><BR/>Nazi ideology blamed the Jews for all ills, including the Second World War itself, and saw communism and socialism as essentially Jewish. Hitler created a genocidal mentality and justified a genocidal policy.<BR/><BR/>The Nazis committed countless atrocities. They killed thousands of handicapped children. They killed as many Gypsies as they could. They deported Jews from all the countries they occupied to death camps like Auschwitz. They murdered six million Jews and four million Soviet prisoners of war. The war they started killed 50 million people.<BR/><BR/>Evans nails the lie that Nazism was in some sense socialist; he shows how ¿Germany was still a capitalist economy, dominated by private enterprise.¿ Hitler¿s policies were not `autarchic¿, which means `self-sufficiency as an economic system¿. Nazism was not contained in one country but expansionist, predatory and aggressive. It never relied on its own national resources but on stealing other people¿s equipment and materials. Nazi Germany extracted more than 30% of the wartime national production in the occupied countries of Western Europe.<BR/><BR/>Nazi Germany ¿invaded Russia, unprovoked, and caused an almost unimaginable degree of death, suffering and destruction.¿ But Hitler¿s invasion of the Soviet Union caused his downfall.<BR/><BR/>The battle of Stalingrad was the decisive turning-point of the whole war. As Evans writes, ¿What happened on the Soviet Front dwarfed anything seen in France, Denmark, Norway or the Low Countries. From 22 June 1941 onwards, at least two-thirds of the German armed forces were always engaged on the Eastern Front. More people fought and died on and behind the Eastern Front than in all the other theatres of war in 1939-45 put together, including the Far East¿ It was in the end on the Eastern Front, more than any other, that the fortunes of war were decided.¿

    Awesome book

    Evans final third book of his series on The Third Reich is a masterpiece!!! Evans explains in detail of the nazis military succeses and ultimate deat in WW2. Anyone studying or loves WW2 history has to read Evans three part series. In this particular book, Evans brings you into the heart and minds of the Nazis, ordinary German citizens, and victims of the nazis. I came away with a real understanding of WW2 from reading from a great professor and author as Evans!!!
