The Third Reich in Power


The Third Reich in Power unfolds the terrible and compelling story of the Nazi regime, from the moment Hitler seized power in the summer of 1933 to the point where he plunged Europe into war. Richard J. Evans examines how it was possible for a group of ideological obsessives to remould a society famous for its sophistication and complexity into a one-party state directed purely at war and race hate. He shows how the Nazis won over the hearts and minds of German citizens, twisted science, religion and culture, and transformed the economy, education, law and order to achieve total dominance in German politics and society. The major events of the dictatorship including the Night of the Long Knives, the anti-Jewish Nuremberg Laws, the Olympic Games, the pogroms, the headlong rush to war are re-created with skill and understanding, but just as important is the author's engagement with the myriad, smaller ways in which a whole population became enmeshed in a horrific experiment in human engineering at the very heart of Europe. The picture created is of a dictatorship consumed by visceral hatreds and ambitions and driven by war. Hide synopsis

Nazis In Power

by Maurice H Bank on Apr 3, 2014

This book is an excellent history of the pre-war years of the Third Reich where Hitler and his entourage ruled with a tight fist, and nothing got by them. Education, Medicine, Law, and other important parts of the society were controlled by appointing pro-Nazi people or people sympathetic to the cause. The author continuously throughout the book makes the reader quite aware of the discrimination against the Jews and others and how so many competent people were removed from positions- in order to make room for the Nazis and their sympathizers. He also makes it abundantly clear that the depression in Germany was halted via a massive arms buildup- where everything including grants- were steered to the arms industry in preparation for war. This book describes everything in the period 1933-1939 when the world looked the other way and payed for it
