Read full description of the books:
I have read the first 130+ pages, until 1930. This is an excellent history, written after most of the other standards. The author is not reluctant to express his opinion. Here are a few quotes ...
... German elites and masses of ordinary people chose to abdicate their individual critical faculties in favor of a politics based on faith, hope, hatred and sentimental collective self-regard for their own race and nation … leading to an almost total moral collapse of an advanced industrial civilization ... many citizens abandoned the burden of thinking for themselves.
... National Socialism went beyond brawling, despair and hatred … to a heroic quasi-religious dimension … with sacrificial victims, martyrs … took the emotions of religion and synthesized them into a political religion … the German state religion … with a messinic Hitler central to it all
... a Hamburg schoolteacher (female) wrote after a 1932 meeting … How many look up to him with touching faith … as their helper, their saviour, their deliverer from unbearable stress … he rescues (us all)
... Nazis differed from other political parties by keeping their election machinery permanently mobilized … they held meetings before, during and after elections … their printers were ready to rebut opponents instantly … they were always ready to file writs of libel ... pamphlets were issued in braille
