Magnus  Brechtken - Albert Speer


Speer's career as a Nazi, war criminal and surviving witness

NSDAP member since 1931 and soon one of Hitler's intimates, Albert Speer quickly became the architect of the racial state. As armaments minister during the war he was tirelessly on the go in support of the total state and extermination machinery. After the war he nevertheless claimed never to have really supported the state and never to have been a proper Nazi.

Magnus Brechtken shows how Speer managed to spread this legend and how millions of Germans greedily sucked it up so as not to have to face their own guilt.

History brilliantly written using new source material.

"An important book, fascinatingly written, and which once and for all clears up many of the legends about Speer."
