Who was Adolf Hitler, and how was he able to rise to such dizzying heights of power? How could Germany, a nation with such a brilliant record of achievement in all areas of human endeavor, succumb to (and even support) Hitler's murderous rule? To answer these questions, Donald Wall draws on over 30 years of personal scholarship and teaching in the area of Nazi Germany. Balanced, articulate, and accessible to readers of all levels, NAZI GERMANY AND WORLD WAR II offers a comprehensive treatment of the key events and themes without getting bogged down in trivial detail. The text includes solid supporting evidence and recent research on such hotly debated topics as German citizens'knowledge of the Holocaust and popular support for the Gestapo's reign of terror.
