Spandau: The Secret Diaries
Spandau: The Secret Diaries
By Albert Speer
Macmillan, 1976, 463 pp.

Hitler's architect and Minister of War Production, sentenced to 20 years at Nuremberg, chronicles the debilitating tedium of prison existence and tries to come to terms with the past that brought him there. Will seem familiar to readers of Inside the Third Reich (1970), though many of the reminiscences and reflections on Hitler and his court are new.
