Reviews
"Magnificent . . . One of the great achievements of biography . . . What makes the individual important, why differences in personality matter, are on display everywhere in this searching book . . . We get the living presence of Nazism and understand how it was that such evil was perpetuated with a perverted sense of doing good."--Carl Rollyson, New York Sun

"The hollowed-out soul of one of Nazi Germany's worst criminals is explored through his wife's recollections in this searching biography . . . Dougherty vividly dissects the murderous intrigues roiling Nazi bureaucracies . . . A chilling, revelatory case study of the moral corruption of the Third Reich."--Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Gripping . . . engrossing . . . A masterful account of the quintessential Nazi."--Kirkus (starred)

"An exhaustive and dark expedition into the diabolical mind of a truly evil villain and unsettling insight on the deliberate delusion that blinded some Germans to the horrific atrocities committed by the Third Reich."--Booklist
