The Long Night: William L. Shirer and the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich - Steve Wick This was a richly informative, well-fleshed out book about William L. Shirer's life as a journalist/radio correspondent in Nazi Germany between August 1934 and December 1940. The author also sheds light here on Shirer's overall career as a journalist, which began after his college graduation in 1925, when he travelled to Paris, where he managed to get a low level position with the Chicago Tribune. In reading this book, I learned a lot more about both Shirer the journalist and the man.

I highly recommend this book to anyone with both a love of history and an interest in learning about a journalist's struggle to find truth in a totalitarian country and share it with the wider world.
