Rise and Fall of the Third Reich
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Patrick, 30 maj 2004
Den amerikanske journalisten Shirers (som själv bodde i Tyskland under slutet av 20-talet) bok "Rise and fall of the Third Reich" räknas (med rätt) som ett standardverk vad gäller böcker om Tredje riket.
Trots att boken är nästan 40 år gammal så håller den faktiskt än idag, speciellt den första hälften av boken som beskriver NSDAP:s väg till makten och fram till Anschluss (anekteringen av Österrike) håller väldigt hög klass.
Fram till denna tid bodde nämligen författaren i Tyskland/... Läs hela recensionen

A work which everyone should read. -- Hugh Trevor-Roper A splendid work of scholarship, objective in method, sound in judgment, inescapable in its conclusions. * New York Times Book Review * 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 * One of the most important works of history of our time. * New York Times * 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 *
Bloggat om Rise and Fall of the Third Reich
William L. Shirer ranks as one of the greatest of all American foreign correspondents. He lived and worked in Paris, Belin, Vienna, and Rome. But it was above all as correspondent in Germany for the Chicago Tribune and later for the Columbia Broadcasting System in the late 1930s that his reputation was established. He subsequently wrote The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, which is hailed as a classic, and after World War Two he was awarded the Legion d'Honneur. In the post-war years he wrote in a variety of fields, and in his seventies he learned Russian, publishing a biography of Tolstoy at the age of 89. He died in 1994. His Berlin broadcasts were published posthumously by Hutchinson in 1999.
