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.

Synopsis:

What happened when Germany's elite as well as most of its citizens chose not to think for themselves and to favor instead a politics based on faith, hope, hatred, and sentimental regard for their own race and nation? The consequences were catastrophic. Michael Burleigh's account of the moral breakdown and transformation of an advanced industrial society in the heart of Europe is a clearheaded assessment of the history, effects, and meaning of National Socialism in Germany.

Filled with human and moral considerations that are missing from more theoretical accounts, The Third Reich gives full weight to the experience of ordinary people who were swept up in, or repelled by, Hitler's movement. It restores a broad perspective and intellectual unity to issues that have become academic sub-specialties and offers a brilliant new interpretation of Hitler's evil rule.
