Winfried  Süß  (Editor), Dietmar  Süß  (Editor) - The "Third Reich"


A competent overview that provides deep insights into the results of the latest research and present-day discussions.

Where was the centre of power of the Third Reich? Who planned the murder of the Jews, and who had enough courage to offer resistance to Hitler’s regime? Who benefited from those two German national characters, War and Barbarity? These questions, and many others like them, are answered by 15 authors who are among the best historians of the younger generation.

The time of National Socialism is probably the best researched period of German history and the one that interests the general public most. This is why there is a multitude of studies of the various aspects of the Third Reich. Until now, however, there has not been a general overview that is comprehensible and that takes the results of the latest historical research into consideration.

This book gives readers interested in history as well as university students a concise introduction to all the important and hitherto neglected questions and interpretations of the National Socialist period. It also gives readers a different view of the National Socialist rule and its aftermath.
