Synopsis
William L. Shirer is one of those rare geniuses of journalism-- a close observer and good reporter who has the faculty of being on the spot when anything important happens. He stood in the Place de la Concorde, Paris, on that February night of 1934 when a Fascist mob was kept from storming the Chamber of Deputies only by force. He witnessed the declaration of conscription in Germany the next year, when the Versailles treaty was torn up. He was in Vienna when the Nazis took over Austria. He visited Danzig, Gdynia and Warsaw during the fate-heavy August of 1939. he saw the whole of the war from Berlin and on the Western front from its inception up to the end of 1940. This book tells of what he saw. It is a simple, day-to-day record of events as they happened before his eyes-- the great events that have shaped world history for the past seven years, and the small revealing incidents that show how it is with the people of Germany. Without histrionics, without exaggerations, the record of the Nazi career of conquest appears in all its terrifying proportions. There have been many books about Germany in recent years. There has been not one with the information, the keen perception, and the cumulative power of this.
