People Under Hitler
People Under Hitler
By Wallace R. Deuel
Harcourt, 1942, 392 pp.

So many books have been written about Nazi Germany that another one must be extra good to arouse interest or elicit praise. The present work of Mr. Deuel, who served several years as Berlin correspondent of the Chicago Daily News, needs no apology for it is one of the very best. Objective, factual, utterly impersonal -- it builds up a picture of life under Hitler so terrifying, yet so convincing, that it should become one of our primary sources for knowledge of the Third Reich.
