Publisher Comments:

A Major Study of One of the Twentieth Century's Darkest Periods

Until now there has been no up-to-date, one-volume, international history of Nazi Germany, despite its being among the most studied phenomena of our time. The Third Reich restores a broad perspective and intellectual unity to issues that have become academic subspecialties and offers a brilliant new interpretation of Hitler's evil rule.

Filled with human and moral considerations that are missing from theoretical accounts, Michael Burleigh's book gives full weight to the experience of ordinary people who were swept up in, or repelled by, Hitler's movement and emphasizes international themes-for Nazi Germany appealed to many European nations, and its wartime conduct included efforts to dominate the Continental economy and involved gigantic population transfers and exterminations, recruitment of foreign labor, and multinational armies.

Book News Annotation:

This massive history of the Nazis focuses on the moral breakdown and transformation they created in their otherwise advanced industrial society through the religious type of fervor they fomented in their followers. The human and moral element of the tale is maintained even as Burleigh traces the political and military events in mind-boggling detail. Burleigh, who has written four previous books on the subject, is currently visiting professor at Washington and Lee U. in Lexington U. in Kentucky; he is professor of modern history at Cardiff U. in Wales.
