Book Review - The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

A History of Nazi Germany
By: William L. Shirer

Book Review

This is an exhaustive book. William Shirer has my respect as a historian but also for the amount of material he lays out. One of the characteristics I appreciate about a historian which Shirer possesses is the ability to bring dimension to situations in an interesting way. The unavoidable byproduct of covering Nazi Germany is that the book is rather dark and discouraging. Shirer does help some with how he organizes the material. If you as a reader are remotely willing to engage history for the sake of perceiving the present, this is a must read.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
