Publisher's Summary

There is no story in 20th-century history more important to understand than Hitler’s rise to power and the collapse of civilization in Nazi Germany. With The Coming of the Third Reich, Richard Evans, one of the world’s most distinguished historians, has written the definitive account for our time. A masterful synthesis of a vast body of scholarly work integrated with important new research and interpretations, Evans’s history restores drama and contingency to the rise to power of Hitler and the Nazis, even as it shows how ready Germany was by the early 1930s for such a takeover to occur. The Coming of the Third Reich is a masterwork of the historian’s art and the book by which all others on the subject will be judged.

very interesting.

Extremely good information, very comprehensive. The only difficulty I had was that the author skipped around a lot chronologically when examining different aspects of the development. it's probably a hard thing to avoid doing while making such a detailed history so maybe it can't be done any other way. It just made it hard to keep track of what he was talking about in relation to everything else that was going on when you were in the 1930s and then a slight change of subject and suddenly we were back at the start of the 20's again. Other than that a great book. highly recommend it.
