Review-A-Day

"Richard Evans's three volumes of disagreeable details, masterfully ordered and presented with ruthless clarity, are not centrally concerned with actual fighting, although a good account can be found there. His indictment is principally based on the political and cultural climate that created a monster out of an apparently civilized nation-state. And it does not fail to quote from countless witnesses whose eyes had to shed — like tears — their disbelief of a barbarism for which only the human species could find the evil energies." William H. Gass, Harper's Magazine (read the entire Harper's review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An absorbing, revelatory, and definitive account of one of the greatest tragedies in human history.

Adroitly blending narrative, description, and analysis, Richard J. Evans portrays a society rushing headlong to self-destruction and taking much of Europe with it. Interweaving a broad narrative of the war's progress from a wide range of people, Evans reveals the dynamics of a society plunged into war at every level. The great battles and events of the conflict are here, but just as telling is Evans's re-creation of the daily experience of ordinary Germans in wartime. At the center of the book is the Nazi extermination of the Jews. The final book in Richard J. Evan's three-volume history of Hitler's Germany, hailed a masterpiece by The New York Times, The Third Reich at War lays bare the most momentous and tragic years of the Nazi regime.
