Seventy years have passed since Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor, and in the intervening years a vast amount has been written on the origins and nature of the Third Reich. The years from 1933 to 1945 cast such a grim shadow that the moral, ethical, and religious elements embedded in the narrative are such that the subject still resists treatment as part of a historical past. Fierce debates still rage over both the how and the why of these terrible events. In this concise and accessible account Martin Kitchen addresses the major issues. How did Hitler come to power? How was the Nazi dictatorship established? What was the essential nature of the regime? What were the reasons for Hitler’s extraordinary popularity? Why did Germany go to war? What led to the Holocaust? What was the legacy of National Socialism?

This is a short overview of the history of Nazi Germany, but it's certainly not sufficient in itself for understanding the period - so you could just as well read a longer book straight off. On the other hand, it's a good book for what it is. Just don't expect any topic to be given more than a sketch.

This book is a concise and easy to read summary of the Third Reich. It reviews the rise and fall of Hitler and Nazism in a scant 85 pages of text. It is an excellent starting point for persons who might be interested in learning about the many facets of the Nazis but who do not want to slog through some massive tome to do so.

The book contains four chapters. Chapters 1 and 2 discuss how the Nazis rose to power. Chapter 3 discusses how the Nazis governed Germany and prepared for war once they got into power. Chapter 4 briefly reviews key events of World War II that relate to the Nazis: major military actions (invasion of Poland, invasion of France, invasion of Russia, defeat), mass killings, forced labor, and wartime deprivations.

The book is an excellent overall general guide to the Third Reich but has a few drawbacks. These include (1) repeated instances where the author refers to people by their last name only, not good for readers who are unfamiliar with whom the author is referring; (2) passages of the book, at times even whole sections, read as if they were dictated and not written; and (3) most importantly, World War II itself, and the signal events occurring within it and immediately thereafter relating to the Nazis, should have been discussed in a bit more depth to provide a fuller understanding of the power of the Nazis and the effects of that power.

A good, indexed bibliography is included as are almost 50 excellent photos in a separate photo section. In keeping with the primary emphasis of the book, almost all of the photos appear to pre-date World War II.
