Berlin Diary: The Journal of a Foreign Correspondent, 1934-1941

Berlin Diary: The Journal of a Foreign Correspondent, 1934-1941 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

CBS radio broadcaster William L. Shirer was virtually unknown in 1940 when he decided there might be a book in the diary he had kept in Europe during the 1930s--specifically those sections dealing with the collapse of the European democracies and the rise of Nazi Germany. Shirer was virtually the only correspondent able to report on the startling events from 1934-1940 and so offers an invaluable perspective on that period. ''Berlin Diary'' first appeared in 1941, and the timing was perfect. The energy, passion, and electricity in it were palpable. The book was an instant success, and it became the frame of reference against which thoughtful Americans judged the rush of events in Europe. It exactly matched journalist to event: the right reporter at the right place at the right time. It stands as so few books have ever done--a pure act of journalistic witness.
