A history of Nazi Germany

Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, which is about the history of the birth and decline of Nazi Germany. Everyone views World War II as the biggest war in human history. The conflict erupted in 1939 and ended in 1945. More than 60 countries and regions participated in the war, affecting more than 2 billion people. According to incomplete statistics, both sides in the war deployed more than 100 million troops in total. The war caused more than 90 million casualties. The direct cost of the war was 1.35 trillion US dollars, and the economic losses exceeded 4 trillion US dollars. As the main initiator of World War II, the Third Reich only existed for twelve years and four months. Still, it created an appalling disaster for humanity. William Shirer's The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich is an important book that highlights this frightening chapter in history. By citing a wide range of secret documents, private diaries, conference reports, and records of interrogation, the book chronicles the entire process of the rise and fall of the Third Reich for readers, presenting a magnificent historical picture of World War II. This book is widely recognized as the most authoritative work on Nazi Germany due to its large amount of information based on authentic files. The author of this book, William Shirer, was a famous American foreign correspondent, news analyst, and historian on modern world history. During World War II, he served as a war correspondent for the Columbia Broadcasting System. He lived and worked in Germany for a long time and experienced Hitler's reign of the Third Reich up close. With the fall of the Third Reich in the spring of 1945, most of the confidential files of the German government were seized by the US First Army. These files also included a total of 485 tons of classified records from Nazi Germany's Foreign Office, the Army, and the secret police. All the documents lay sealed in a US Army warehouse in Alexandria, Virginia. After the end of World War II, with the initiative of the American Historical Association and funding from private foundations, these Nazi documents were opened. As one of the few historians granted access, William Shirer had the honor of reading many of Nazi Germany’s confidential files. Through reading and organizing the archives, William Shirer completed the historical masterpiece The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich after years of laborious writing. The New York Times praised him as an extraordinary historian who "could integrate living witnesses with historical facts." In this Bookey, we will examine the book The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich throughout the following historical periods: Section One, The Rise of Hitler and His Seizure of Power; Section Two, The Beginning of the War and Early Victory; Section Three, The Turning Point of the War and the Fall of the Third Reich.
