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.
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.
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.
