Publisher's Summary

The definitive account of Germany's malign transformation under Hitler's total rule and the implacable march to war. This magnificent second volume of Richard J. Evans's three-volume history of Nazi Germany was hailed by Benjamin Schwartz of The Atlantic Monthly as "the definitive English-language account... gripping and precise." It chronicles the incredible story of Germany's radical reshaping under Nazi rule. As those who were deemed unworthy to be counted among the German people were dealt with in increasingly brutal terms, Hitler's drive to prepare Germany for the war that he saw as its destiny reached its fateful hour in September 1939.
The Third Reich in Power is the fullest and most authoritative account yet written of how, in six years, Germany was brought to the edge of that terrible abyss.


What the Critics Say

“[Evans’s] three-volume history... is shaping up to be a masterpiece. Fluidly narrated, tightly organized and comprehensive." (William Grimes, The New York Times)

What you did not know, very interesting

The two first books on Third reich is very interesting with lots of details. A must be for any one interested in why it became very bad in 30'ties and 40'ties.
Narrator is very good, but should take a basic course in german pronounciation. Who have ever heard of Gehring oh dear it is Herman Göring, took me long time to figure out. Could be ok in US or Isles, but not on the continent
