The devil's disciples : Hitler's inner circle by Anthony Read( Book )
22 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,579 libraries worldwide
The Nazi Regime was essentially a religious cult relying on the hypnotic personality of Adolf Hitler, and it was fated to die with him. But while it lasted, his closest lieutenants competed ferociously for power and position as his chosen successor. This peculiar leadership dynamic resulted in millions of deaths and some of the worst excesses of World War II. The Devil's Disciples is the first major book for a general readership to examine those lieutenants, not only as individuals but also as a group. It focuses on the three most important Nazi paladins-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. Making the fullest use of diaries, documents, and memoirs, The Devil's Disciples offers fresh insights into their characters and their relationships to one another and to Hitler. Perceptive, illuminating, and grandly ambitious, 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. It is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the Nazi period, or the workings of a dictatorship

The proudest day : India's long road to independence by Anthony Read( Book )

The Proudest Day is an account of the end of the Raj. Anthony Read and David Fisher put the events of 1947 into perspective, telling the whole story in detail from its beginnings more than a century earlier. Their narrative takes a look at many of the events and personalities involved, especially the three charismatic giants - Ghandi, Nehru, and Jinnah - who dominated the final, increasingly bitter thirty years. Meanwhile, a succession of British politicians and viceroys veered wildly between liberalism and repression until the Raj became a powder keg, wanting only a match. --From publisher's description

When President John F. Kennedy electrified the world by declaring, "Ich bin ein Berliner," he could not have produced the same effect by claiming to belong to any other city. For more than a century, Berlin has exercised a strange fascination for the rest of the world. It has stood as a symbol for arrogant militarism, unrestrained imperialism, bloody revolution, and the terrors of totalitarian rule. In the twenties and thirties it harbored an explosion of artistic expression, from kinky cabarets to the confrontational plays of Bertolt Brecht to the architecture of the Bauhaus. After World War II, its division mirrored the divisions of the old world order
