The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany - William L. Shirer For anyone eager to gain a fairly comprehensive understanding of the development, growth, decline, and collapse of the Third Reich, this book is it. With Shirer, you have someone who was a witness to many of the events described in this book - e.g. the Nazi Party rallies at Nuremberg, Hitler's marching of troops into the Rhineland in 1936, the incorporation of Austria into the German Reich in March 1938, the Munich crisis, and the French surrender in June 1940.

Shirer also makes skillful use of the wealth of Nazi archival materials to give the reader a full scope of the characters and policies which defined and shaped Germany between 1933 and 1945.
