Editorial Reviews

¿At some point in your career there may come the moment when this book is tha answer to an unsaid prayer ¿ This is the book that will rescue you. This is not so much a companion to Nazi Germany as a compendium.¿ ¿ History Teaching Review 'This well-informed and moderately priced work succeeds in its object of explaining the many controversies arising from historical interpretation of a catastrophic period of European history, while leaving its readers to make up their own minds which view is most convincing to them.' ¿K.C.Fraiser, St Andrews University 'Altogether this is a very useful book, especially for those beginning their studies.' ¿ Contemporary Review
