The Face Of The Third Reich : Portraits Of The Nazi Leadership

Joachim C Fest

In these searing profiles the author dissects the lives of fifteen infamous Nazis--including Hermann Gring, Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, Martin Bormann, Ernst Rhm, Hans Frank, Rudolph Hss, Albert Speer, and Hitler himself.

He also analyzes the archetypal roles of the officer corps, intellectuals, and women. This work provides fresh perspectives into how dysfunctional psyches, personal ambitions, and ruthless rivalries impacted the creation and evolution of Hitler's Third Reich.
