Editorial Reviews
From School Library Journal Grade 8 Up–Crew has compiled a broad assortment of primary sources to give readers a glimpse into Germany under Hitler. He opens with a well-reasoned introduction that explains why it is still important for students to learn about the Nazi era. The remaining seven chapters cover the post-World War I breakdown of the German economy and culture, the rise of Hitler, Nazi propaganda, the development of the racist state, Hitler's war machine, and the Holocaust and its aftermath. Each chapter has a general introduction as well as commentary about the individual documents. The excerpts are drawn from government papers, Nazi propaganda, letters, diaries, articles, reminiscences, and trial and hearings testimony. The text is supplemented with black-and-white period photos, art, and documents, including reproductions that show how the Nazis used propaganda to create a mythical Hitler who became the all-powerful embodiment of the German nation. An extensive bibliography, divided by topic, and a list of Web sites offer many good choices for further information. This volume complements other primary-source-based titles such as Dorothy and Carl J. Schneider's World War II (Facts On File, 2003), which examines the war from the American perspective.–Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO Copyright c Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Review "There are literally thousands upon thousands of books which make Nazism their main focus. So what sets this short, 176-page volume apart? Unlike most histories of the Third Reich, whose authors comb through thousands of primary documents to turn out their own narrow (albeit unique) take on the regime, this one allows those primary works to speak for themselves....The result is a lively, first-person account of the entire history of National Socialism told from a myriad of perspectives: the speeches and writings of Nazi leaders like Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels and Speer; testimonies, interviews and memoirs of SA and SS members, German soldiers and officers and the victims (both male and female) of Nazi terror; foreign newspaper reports (American and British); laws and government documents from Germany and occupied countries; and an impressive collection of visual evidence (propaganda posters, cartoons and pictures)."--James Konecke, H-Net Book Review, July 2006 "Selections from Hitler's Mein Kampf, newspaper articles, internal Nazi reports, laws, maps, photographs, cartoons, and first-hand accounts are some of the sources Crew assembles to help students understand Nazi Germany. He also explains what to look for in documents, to help students learn how to use them in other contexts."--Reference and Research Book News
