Abstract:

"The Devil's Disciples is the first major book for a general readership to examine Adolf Hitler's lieutenants, not only as individuals but also as a group. It focuses on the three Nazi paladins closest to Hitler - Goring, Goebbels and Himmler - with their nearest rivals - Bormann, Speer and Ribbentrop - in close attendance. Others who were removed in various ways - like Gregor Strasser, Ernst Rohm, Heydrich and Hess - play supporting roles." "Perceptive and illuminating, The Devil's Disciples is above all a powerful chronological narrative, showing how the personalities of Hitler's inner circle developed and how their jealousies and constant intrigues affected the regime, the war, and Hitler himself."--Jacket.
