    This book a diary written by William L Shirer who later wrote “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich” takes you into Europe of the 1930s precisely the time span from 1934 to 1941 and tells you about the day to day life of a foreign correspondent stationed in Berlin Shirer’s diary is also a first hand report of how Hitler and his henchmen kept deceiving the German public with propaganda and outright lies this being simplified by having full control over the press which also required foreign correspondents to have their reports censored before submitting or broadcastingThis is not history in retrospect This is ugly history in the makingThere is actually not much I could say about the book that other reviewers haven’t already said I would like to point out however that what Shirer considered to be the psyche of “the regular German” was actually the psyche of “the regular Nazi” It might not have occurred to Shirer that the only Germans who freely offered him their opinions were Nazis Non Nazis would have known better than to utter any critic of Hitler or Nazi ideology to anyone but close non Nazi relatives and friends If reported they would have been arrested by the Gestapo and would have landed in front of the kangaroo court called “Volksgericht” or they would at least have been shipped to the nearest concentration campThe book could have used a bit editing However given its invaluable content I consider such flaw insignificant I rate this book 4 12 stars and round up to 5If you are the least bit interested in the reality of the Third Reich and how everything came to be READ THIS BOOK
