Setting Nazi Germany in a European context, this text shows how the Third Reich's abandonment of liberal democracy, decency and tolerance was widespread in Europe at the time. It shows how a radical, pseudo-religious movement seemed to offer salvation to a Germany exhausted by war, depression and inflation.
'This is a monumental book.'
Richard Overy, Sunday Telegraph
'If I had to recommend one book on the Third Reich, this would be it.'
Daniel Johnson, Daily Telegraph
'It is a breathtaking achievement, at once broader and deeper than any other single volume ever published on the subject. Indeed I would go further: it is the product of authentic historical genius.'
Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times
'Happily, Michael Burleigh now fills that bibliographical gap, with a readable and highly knowledgeable account of that ghastly period. You will never be bored by this extraordinary book.'
Andrew Roberts, Mail on Sunday
