Overview

The definitive account of Germany's malign transformation under Hitler's total rule and the implacable march to war

This magnificent second volume of Richard J. Evans's three-volume history of Nazi Germany was hailed by Benjamin Schwartz of the Atlantic Monthly as "the definitive English-language account... gripping and precise." It chronicles the incredible story of Germany's radical reshaping under Nazi rule. As those who were deemed unworthy to be counted among the German people were dealt with in increasingly brutal terms, Hitler's drive to prepare Germany for the war that he saw as its destiny reached its fateful hour in September 1939. The Third Reich in Power is the fullest and most authoritative account yet written of how, in six years, Germany was brought to the edge of that terrible abyss.

A well researched, well written account that weaves the story of Hitler and the Nazi consolidation of power. It brings home the oft forgotten fact that the Nazis went after anyone who stood in their way, not just Jews or Political dissidents but trade unionists and other "ordinary" Germans who might not have considered themselves to be a threat to the Nazis like the mentally challenged or disabled. It also makes one think, there were times in Nazi Germanys early history when Hitler could have been stopped in his tracks. It shows just how foolish and meek the theory of appeasement was. It also brilliantly emphasizes that Hitler had no idea that he would win, each victory; from the blood-less victories in Austria, and Chechoslovakia truly built up Hitlers courage to advance to the next takeover. This is a must for any history buff or any one curious about the Nazi tenure in power. It reads almost like a novel at some points, almost as if you were in Berlin as news broke of the Reichstag fire, etc.

Excellent series. The 1st and 3rd books are currently available as ebooks -- why not this one? Can't imagine it's good for sales if one can't download the whole trilogy...
