Reviews

"An astonishing memoir...vividly convey[s] the texture of life under an emerging totalitarian regime... [a] masterpiece." --The New York Times Book Review

"A masterpiece...has more to say about the enduring enigma of Hitler's Reich than almost anything else in the voluminous modern literature on the subject." --Commentary

"Haffner is like the guide of Dante's Inferno, tracing the slow descent into Nazism in intimate detail...Compelling... Fresh, immediate, and wonderfully personal...An absorbing book." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"The prophetic insights of a fairly young man...help us understand the plight, as Haffner refers to it, of the non-Nazi German." --The Denver Post
