By Albert Speer
Inside the Third Reich is not only the most significant personal German account out of the war but the most revealing document on Hitler's reign yet written
The classic eye-witness account of Nazi Germany, by Hitler's Armaments Minister and right-hand man. It takes the reader inside Nazi Germany on four different levels: Hitler's inner circle, National Socialism as a whole, the area of wartime production and the inner struggle of Albert Speer.
The author does not try to make excuses, even by implication, and is unrelenting toward himself and his associates ... Speer's full-length portrait of Hitler has unnerving reality. The Fuhrer emerges as neither an incompetent nor a carpet-gnawing madman but as an evil genius of warped conceits endowed with an ineffable personal magic' New York Times
