This is the BBC series in book form. Same narrative, same photos and images. Good material. It featured lots of interviews of a wide sample of participants in the war; many who were strangely unapologetic of their actions. ( )

During the past 16 years, acclaimed author and documentary-maker, Laurence Rees has met and interviewed a large number of former Nazis, and his insights into the Nazi psyche and the Second World War have received enormous praise. Following the success of Rees's bestselling "Auschwitz", this substantially revised and updated edition of "The Nazis - A Warning from History" tells the powerfully story of the rise and fall of the Third Reich. At the heart of the book lie eyewitness accounts of life under Adolf Hitler, spoken through the words of those who experienced the Nazi regime at every level of society. An extensive new section on the Nazi/Soviet war (previously published in Rees's "War of the Century") provides a chilling insight into Nazi mentality. Described as 'one of the greatest documentary series of all times', "The Nazis - A Warning from History" won a host of awards, including a Bafta and an International Documentary Award. The accompanying book broke new ground in our understanding of the Nazi regime and was praised for 'getting to the heart of the most troubling and elusive questions of Germany before and during World War Two'.

A ground-breaking account of the rise and fall of the Third Reich. Laurence Rees, who also wrote and produced the accompanying BAFTA-winning BBC TV series, describes how the Nazis rose to power, provides chilling details about life in Nazi Germany, and explodes the popular myths surrounding Adolf Hitler, the Party's charismatic leader. At the core of the book lies compelling eyewitness accounts from those who experienced this regime at every level of society; many of those interviewed were committed Nazis who only felt free to tell their story after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Communism throughout Europe..… (more)
