Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Third Reich came of age in 1938. Hitler began the year as the leader of a right-wing coalition and ended it as the sole master of a belligerent nation. Until 1938 Hitler could be dismissed as a ruthless but efficient dictator, a problem for Germany alone; after 1938 he was a threat to the whole of Europe and had set the world on a path toward cataclysmic war. Using previously unseen archival material, acclaimed historian Giles MacDonogh breathtakingly chronicles Adolf Hitler's rise to international infamy over the course of this single year.

Book News Annotation:

Using recently discovered archival material, this work offers month to month chapters covering key events of the year the Third Reich came of age, from the scandals that led to the replacement of key military leaders in January 1938, through the Munich Agreement of September and the first kindertransport in December. The book's narrative style weaves historical sources and insight on those in Hitler's inner circle. An afterword describes the fates of the author's own ancestors during the period. The book includes b&w historical photos. MacDonogh has written other books on WWII. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
