This was one of several books read in a college level European History course. It was, and remains, an eye-opener. Few books on the war will
show you how the Nazi machine took over Germany. The author goes into
the daily fabric of the people as you watch social and civic groups move
into the Nazi mindset. A well written and insightful book. ( )

3229. The Nazi Seizure of Power: The Experience of a Single German Town 1922-1945 Revised Edition, by William Sheridan Allen (read 14 Aug 1999) This is a closely researched history of Northeim, a town in Hanover of about 10,000 people in 1930, concerning the years from 1922 to 1945. The book attempts to figure out why the Nazis won there. I did not find the book dramatic or excessively interesting. ( )
