Abstract:

The rise and fall of the Third Reich offers an examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. Shirer's account of the pivotal characters and events of that critical era benefits from his many years as a reporter and his own personal recollections, as well as from the mass of historical documents retrieved from the German Foreign Office. The result is this account of how Hitler wrested political control of Germany and managed to take the country with him on his mad six-year quest for world domination, only to see it go down in flames in the end.
