Reviews

  • "The standard work by which all others on the subject are still measured . . . Erudite, comprehensive and detailed, always lively and readable, it is the model of what a popular narrative history should be."

    Guardian
  • "One of the most important works of history of our time."

    New York Times
  • "In this political season, William L. Shirer’s mammoth history of Hitler’s Germany seems a useful guide to how a skilled demagogue can seize and destroy a great nation."

    Chicago Tribune
  • "A splendid work of scholarship, objective in method, sound in judgment, inescapable in its conclusions."

    New York Times Book Review
  • "A work which everyone should read."
