Review:
"There are literally thousands upon thousands of books which make Nazism their main focus. So what sets this short, 176-page volume apart? Unlike most histories of the Third Reich, whose authors comb through thousands of primary documents to turn out their own narrow (albeit unique) take on the regime, this one allows those primary works to speak for themselves....The result is a lively, first-person account of the entire history of National Socialism told from a myriad of perspectives: the speeches and writings of Nazi leaders like Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels and Speer; testimonies, interviews and memoirs of SA and SS members, German soldiers and officers and the victims (both male and female) of Nazi terror; foreign newspaper reports (American and British); laws and government documents from Germany and occupied countries; and an impressive collection of visual evidence (propaganda posters, cartoons and pictures)."--James Konecke, H-Net Book Review, July 2006
"Selections from Hitler's Mein Kampf, newspaper articles, internal Nazi reports, laws, maps, photographs, cartoons, and first-hand accounts are some of the sources Crew assembles to help students understand Nazi Germany. He also explains what to look for in documents, to help students learn how to use them in other contexts."--Reference & Research Book News
