The rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party has frightened and fascinated for 70 years. How a western democracy, all be it one suffering from rampant inflation and unemployment, still smarting from an oppressive peace treaty and the toppling of its head of state, could descend into such acts of genocide and barbarism still beggars belief. The events of the 1920s and 1930s and what they led to may recede with each passing year, but they live on in an avalanche of books and magazines, films and TV programmes that show no sign of diminishing. The reasons for the continued interest are not hard to understand. First and foremost there is the human cost: over 55 million people died in the German war, not just soldiers but hosts of civilians. Then there is the fact that the war was truly global-in all, 61 countries with 1.7 billion people took part; this amounts to three-quarters of the world's population. And finally, of course, there is the fascination in the regime whose aggression had done so much to plunge Europe into conflict for the second time inside 50 years: how could the population of Germany put the Nazi Party in power-and how could world politicians stand by while it armed itself for war? Illustrated History of The Third Reich provides a sensible, coherent overview of the greatest story of the 20th century. It analyses the Nazis' rise to power, looking at the politics of post-World War I Germany and examining the machinations of Hitler and the party as it struggled to become the strongest in a sea of sharks. It looks at the way that the Nazis ran Germany, at how they grasped control of education in particular to ensure that the next generation would be subservient to the party's demands. It looks at the foreign policy that led to war, and the devastating effects of that war on Europe and the world. Profusely illustrated, Illustrated History of The Third Reich is a fascinating treatment of a fascinating period of history.
