Inside view of Hitler's Germany!

Many will either admire or hate Mr. Albert Speer. One of the very few of the inner circle of Hitler's regime that survived the war. Yet paid twenty years for it in Spandau. Intelligent, articulate and very informative, Speer describes in all details what it was like to serve under Hitler's command. Here we meet Goebbels, Goering, Himmler and others who helped Hitler to formulate his destructive policies. Many despise Speer, and think he "got away" from it. Maybe there is some truth in that charge. However one also sees the remorse he has suffered later on when all was over. Thanks to him we have an idea how Hitler made his decisions, and how there were carried out. We also meet Hitler's dream of transforming Berlin into a huge city full of ridiculously enormous buildings to make it a "new Rome". Hate him, or admire him, Mr. Speer's book is very helpful. Before reading something like "Hitler's Willing Executioners", read this first.
