It is also a beautiful piece of writing

This is one of the most important books I have read to gain insight into the processes at work in the German community which enabled a gang of thugs to take control of the nation, first by murder and intimidation and then by more subtle methods to capture the loyalty of most of the population for a war that could only end in disaster. It is also a beautiful piece of writing, in stark contrast to the events that the author observed and described with relentless detail.
