The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

By William L. Shirer
Simon and Schuster, 1960
1,245 pp. $10.00

In this enormous book Mr. Shirer returns to the subject he dealt with as a correspondent, in "Berlin Diary," two decades ago. In the years since then he has read much and reflected much; the present work is a remarkably successful effort to write a major history of Nazi Germany. A serious work of scholarship that reads well despite its length.
