read ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Å William L. Shirer William L. Shirer Å 9 summary characters The Nightmare Years 1930 1940 N the war Shirer was there Through articles broadcasts and translations of Hitler's speeches Shirer tirelessly tried to warn the world of the terrible evil that was growing in Germany The Nightmare Years a No I bestseller when first published in America in 1984 is not only the fascinating eyewitness account of this cataclysmic decade but also the personal story of a young American caught in tense and desperate times struggling to survive and provide a life for himself and. Very interesting book I ve previously read Shirer s famous book The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich I d also read his Berlin Diaries which was just the publication of the diaries he kept during the time period he lived in Berlin under Nazi ruleThis book falls somewhere in the middle It isn t just diaries There s of a narrative combining info from his diaries his own memories the book was written decades the Nazi era ended and information that wasn t known until after Nazi documents and other historical facts were learnedOne of the most interesting things about Shirer s works on the Nazis is the fact that he was there covering them observing them meeting them It gives him a perspective that you rarely get in historical works There s obviously a downside to that too but here I think it works well It s interesting to see Shirer and Edward Murrow helping to establish radio news broadcastsThere is a very short section at the very beginning where Shirer travels to Afghanistan This is interesting but given that the rest of the book is focused on Nazis and this is book 2 in his 3 book autobiography he should ve just put that chapter in the first book

For all of Shirere s academic restraint in writing the totally objective Rise and Fall of the Third Reich here he lets all spill out like guts on the floor He is 180 degrees opposite and resorts to name calling insults and strong opinions of the despicable Nazis he met and worked with while he was a radio correspondent there Interesting

read ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Å William L. Shirer William L. Shirer Å 9 summary characters The Nightmare Years 1930 1940 As European correspondent for a number of American newspapers during the 1930s William L Shirer witnessed at first hand many of the pivotal events in the buildup to World War II At the Nuremberg rallies when Hitler roared through the streets celebrating his newly won domination of Germany Shirer was there In Munich as Chamberlain abandoned the Czechs Shirer was there In Vienna during the night of the Anschluss in Berlin when Hitler loosed his Blitzkrieg on Poland and bega. Shirer captures this bewildering time I get the feeling he still was digesting at the end of his life the bafflement of the phenomenon such as the rise of the Nazis The movement was grotesue and full of buffoons and bully boys yet it captured a country and for a time a huge swath of Europe How do such mass movements like this come about when any intelligent person can see that such movements are clearly malignant It is a uestion people of Europe asked in the 1930s and after and it is a uestion revived in the age of Trump
