Burleigh, Michael

Summary: "The Third Reich: A New History restores a broader perspective and intellectual unity to the many subjects that have become academic sub-specialities. It offers a radical re-examination of the Third Reich from its incubation in the hopelessness which followed the German defeat in 1918 to the Nazi regime's final destructive spiral and the aftershocks of de-Nazification."--Jacket.
