CHARACTERS The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich A History of Nazi Germany William L. Shirer ð 9 DOWNLOAD FREE READ ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ð William L. Shirer N The result is a monumental study that has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of one of the most frightening chapters in the history of mankindThis worldwide bestseller has been acclaimed as the definitive book on Nazi Germany; it is a classic workThe accounts of how the United States got involved and how Hitler used Mussolini and Japan are astonishing and the coverage of the war from Germany's early successes to her eventual defeat is must reading. Shirer s masterpiece has long sat untouched on my shelves it s ominous block swastika unsettling all guest who entered my home not always fun to explain to people that you re not a Nazi That said I decided to read this book in tiny increments alongside other books for the past few months and at over 1000 pages it took a bit to finally knock this one out but wow what a book I truly find it surprising that authors and journalists would bother to continue to write about the Third Reich after such a complete and comprehensive book was written about that disastrous time almost a century ago uite simply we all know the basics of the story Hitler rises to power does some horrible things starts a world war and eventually falls ignominiously but the secret to this incredible book is the amount of detail and sheer breadth of knowledge within concerning life war and the troublesome arch of human historyA MUST READ especially in these modern times

Shirer Hitler boasted that The Third Reich would last a thousand years It lasted only 12 But those 12 years contained some of the most catastrophic events Western civilization has ever knownNo other powerful empire ever beueathed such mountains of evidence about its birth and destruction as the Third Reich When the bitter war was over and before the Nazis could destroy their files the Allied demand for unconditional surrender produced an almost hour by hour record of. Three years ago I implemented a personal tradition to read a Monster Classic each year This is my term referring to a piece of writing that is great in reputation and girth The how and when of it is to begin the Monster mid summer and read it in fits and starts over the course of several months with a goal of finishing before the end of the year The why of it isn t so simple Most avid readers I know have daunting lists of books they want to or feel they should read I m no different but life is too short for shoulds I m after something that will change the way I look at writing at storytelling at the world Without intention my Monster Classics have been built on the premise of or are greatly informed by war Two years ago I read Thomas Mann s The Magic Mountain an allegorical tale shaped largely by Mann s reaction to World War I last year Tolstoy brought me War and Peace that gorgeous and profound tale of Russia during the Napoleanic era This summer I turned from fiction to narrative non fiction World War II has long fascinated and disturbed me I ve sought without success to reconcile the incongruous romance of this war the films music literature that conjure a sense of the heroic and of solidarity the Greatest Generation united as Allies with its human suffering so incomprehensible that the mind struggles against its limits to accept what the eyes witness in words and photos I selected The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich for perhaps the same reason that millions before me have to understand how one man created a machine of slaughter out of a country in shambles After 1264 pages in six weeks I am still bewildered Of course I knew the external conditions the carving up of Germany after WWI the political disaster that the Treaty of Versailles put into motion the desperate economic conditions in Germany as the Depression ground what little economy it had left into grist But this diminutive Austrian who so captured the imagination and bent the will of a once proud nation how did he do it Why did he And why did so many follow him into the hell of his creationWilliam Shirer a longtime foreign correspondent worked in the Third Reich from 1934 to 1940 leaving only when it became clear he and his family were no longer safe He returned to Germany in 1945 to report on the Nuremberg trials The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich was published in 1960 barely a generation after the end of the war Because of Shirer s proximity and access to the majors players of the Third Reich and certainly because war was exploding all around him the book has an immediacy and intimacy that sets it apart from a traditional historical examination of events It also contains Shirer s interpretations suppositions and ruminations As an American of German Italian Norwegian descent I had a very hard time with Shirer s characterization of Germans as possessing a predilection for cruelty and war There are few nations that remain exempt from this pointed finger But it begs the uestion that even Shirer could not answer how did the atrocities of the war escape the outrage of the German people Shirer presents clues and circumstances which serve as a caution to us all And many of which I recognize in today s socially and politically polarized America that feeds on propaganda and is increasingly indulgent of politicians idiocy and rejection of facts The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is thick with military history this is a book about war That may seem obvious but do not expect a sociological narrative Shirer is a great journalist which assumes certain skill in telling a story that will appeal to a lay audience But this book after its introduction to Hitler and his early life uses the major events invasions and battles of World War II to show the creation of an empire It is a testament to Shirer s skill that I became so caught up in the details of Hitler s conuests and defeats Although I have read books about individual battles I have never followed a comprehensive history of the European theatre It was astonishing to read on the ground reports as nearly all of Europe fell at Germany s feet in a short period then to sit above it all and witness Hitler s increasing megalomania that spelled out his downfallIt is dense It is detailed It is exhausting exhaustive overwhelming and shattering To read The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is to have your heart broken again and again Yet to hold history at arm s length is to guarantee that it will be repeated

Shirer The nightmare empire built by Adolph Hitler This record included the testimony of Nazi leaders and of concentration camp inmates the diaries of officials transcripts of secret conferences army orders private letters all the vast paperwork behind Hitler's drive to conuer the worldThe famed foreign correspondent and historian William L Shirer who had watched and reported on the Nazis since 1925 spent five and a half years sifting through this massive documentatio. This is uite a dry book full of technical detail about the state of Germany of its politics and as promised the rise of the NazisBuried deep inside is a brief section copied below that looks up from the statistics of the holocaust to give this harrowing eye witness account which has stayed with me for the 30 odd years since I read it Particularly the part where the girl points to herself and says her age probably because I was around that age when I read itIt is difficult to believe these things happened But they did Even difficult to understand that on a smaller scale things like this still happen time and again Without screaming or weeping these people undressed stood around in family groups kissed each other said farewells and waited for a sign from another SS man who stood near the pit also with a whip in his hand During the fifteen minutes that I stood near the pit I heard no complaint or plea for mercy An old woman with snow white hair was holding a one year old child in her arms and singing to it and tickling it The child was cooing with delight The parents were looking on with tears in their eyes The father was holding the hand of a boy about 10 years old and speaking to him softly the boy was fighting his tears The father pointed to the sky stroked his head and seemed to explain something to him At that moment the SS man at the pit shouted something to his comrade The latter counted off about twenty persons and instructed them to go behind the earth mound I well remember a girl slim and with black hair who as she passed close to me pointed to herself and said twenty three years old I walked around the mound and found myself confronted by a tremendous grave People were closely wedged together and lying on top of each other so that only their heads were visible Nearly all had blood running over their shoulders from their heads Some of the people were still moving Some were lifting their arms and turning their heads to show that they were still alive The pit was already two thirds full I estimated that it contained about a thousand people I looked for the man who did the shooting He was an SS man who sat at the edge of the narrow end of the pit his feet dangling into the pit He had a tommy gun on his knees and was smoking a cigarette The people completely naked went down some steps and clambered over the heads of the people lying there to the place to which the SS man directed them They lay down in front of the dead or wounded people some caressed those who were still alive and spoke to them in a low voice Then I heard a series of shots I looked into the pit and saw that the bodies were twitching or the heads lying already motionless on top of the bodies that lay beneath them Blood was running from their necks The next batch was approaching already They went down into the pit lined themselves up against the previous victims and were shot And so it went batch after batch The next morning the German engineer returned to the site I saw about thirty naked people lying near the pit Some of them were still alive Later the Jews still alive were ordered to throw the corpses into the pit Then they themselves had to lie down in this to be shot in the neck I swear before God that this is the absolute truth
