Summary

Beginning in the broken aftermath of the First World War and the Treaty of Versailles, which made German recovery almost impossible, Whittock tells not just the account of the men who rose to the fore in the dangerous days of the Weimar republic, circling around the cult of personality generated by Adolf Hitler, but also a convincing and personality-driven overview of how ordinary Germans became seduced by the dreams of a new world order, the Third Reich. The book also gives a fascinating insight into the everyday life in Germany during the Second World War and explores key questions such as how much did the Germans know about the Holocaust and why did the regime eventually fail so disastrously?

Brief But Exceptional

An exceptionally well written and presented insight into the Third Reich from its very beginnings to its downfall in the rubble of Berlin in 1945. This is an particularly informative look at it subject matter and due to being a “Brief History” succeeds in avoiding getting bogged down in too much detail and statistics.

This audiobook would be ideally for anyone with a passing interest in WW2 or from an education / student point of view and would provide an excellent taster for anyone unsure if they would find the other audiobooks that are available but are a lot longer in length!

Brief but thorough

For me it had plenty of detail and documentation and storyline to explain "how could this happen. Loved the narration as well.
