Also gives great insights into the technical problems of the day trying to get a broadcast out of Germany or occupied countries even though the Nazi sensors supposedly approved his content.
Unfortunately, but understandably, the book ends where America's involvement in the war begins. But this is also the book's strength, for we all know pretty much what happened from that point on, and that is where many of the war books we are familiar with begin. What makes Shirer's book so engrossing is in its first-person account of the widespread terror that the U.S. tried so hard to ignore: the Polish enslavement and genocide, the tragic fall of the Paris of our expatriot writers and artists, the surrender of Scandinavia without a shot being fired, and the utter annihilation of Europe's best armies. And how close the British army came to sharing that fate. It is a view of a horrible, violent war that many in this country are not familiar with, the events that transpired during our "pre-war" period, and Shirer presents them lucidly.
