Very good. No dust jacket. No stickers, no remainder marks, not ex-library. The jacket is missing. The cover is in fine condition, clean with minimal wear. The binding is square and firm. A former price is in ink on the ffep, otherwise the pages are unmarked throughout. A map of the rise of the Third Reich in printed on the front endpapers, its fall on the back.
Love the book! Was exactly as described. Thank you.

Shirer's Rise and Fall of the 3rd Reich
I was very pleased to receive the hardback copy of this book. It is hard to believe that it was published 52 years ago since it looks as if it brand new. Many thanks again for your excellent service.

The Rise And Fall of the Third Reich
An excellent, thorough history of perhaps the most evil regime in the history of the world. A little dry and drawn out at times but well researched by a author who experienced much of the activity at first hand.

The book to read about Nazi Germany
I have thought about reading this book for decades, but was afraid it might be hard to get through like so many nonfiction books. After my daughter assured me that it is very well-written, I decided to buy it as I knew I couldn't read it within the library's four-week check-out time. I'm so glad I did. It is one of the most interesting (maybe THE most interesting) book I've read. My husband probably got tired of my nightly report on some amazing (frequently disturbing) fact I'd read that day. I don't know that "enjoyed" is really the word for how I felt about the book, considering the content, but "enlightened" definitely is.

A great feature article
Shirer was a journalist, and this work reads like a very, very long magazine feature article. He gives his book the immediacy of someone who lived through much of what he describes, making it very human, often biased, and always readable. At 1,400+ pages, he never wastes your time - that's a remarkable feat in itself.
