Nazi Book Burning
For me, this is the grandaddy of them all, the standard work by which all others on the subject are still measured. A brilliant and respected journalist, Shirer was actually there for much of the time and it shows. Erudite, comprehensive and detailed, always lively and readable, it is the model of what a popular narrative history should be. My own copy has been read and referred to so often it is falling apart. Another essential benchmark in the study of Hitler and the Third Reich. First published a mere seven years after Hitler's death, it remains as definitive now as it was then, as Bullock himself proved 40 years later when he incorporated much of it into his equally magisterial Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives.

Alfred A. When Adolf Hitler turned 30, in , his life was more than half over, yet he had made not the slightest mark on the world. He had no close friends and was probably still a virgin. He had never held a job; during his years in the Austrian capital before World War I, he survived by peddling his paintings and postcards, and was sometimes homeless. When war broke out in , he entered the German Army as a private, and when the war ended four years later, he was still a private. At 43, Hitler became the chancellor of Germany, and by 52 he could claim to be the most powerful man in the history of Europe, with an empire that spanned the continent.
