Since its publication, William L. Shirer's monumental study of Hitler's German Empire has been widely hailed as the definitive record of one of history's blackest hours.
For more than five years, Shirer sifted through the massive self-documentation left behind by the Nazis to create a scholarly and objective history of the period from Hitler's unlikely rise and fateful appointment to the German chancellorship in January, 1933, to Germany's unconditional surrender to the Allies in May, 1945.
But it is also a uniquely personal history, as told by a man who witnessed many of its events first hand. Filled with such anecdotes as of the French surrender to Hitler at Compiegne, in the exact location of Germany's surrender at the end of the First World War, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is as gripping as any novel: "I look for the expression in Hitler's face.
I am but fifty yards from him and see him through my glasses as though he were directly in front of me. I have seen that face many times at the great moments of his life. But today! It is afire with scorn, anger, hate, revenge, triumph".
