Review

"[Fleming's book] should finally lay to rest David Irving's provocative theory that Hitler neither ordered nor wished the destruction of the Jewish people. . . . A meticulous examination of the entire network of authority that set the extermination policy in motion."--"New York Review of Books

Format: Paperback
Gerald Fleming makes an excellent case and puts forward an enriching amount of material that makes this study highly integral to both the historiography of the Holocaust, as well as to many aspects of this nightmarish aura of terror.
A great many perpetrators are put forward in this study: Eichmann, Heydrich, Himmler, to name but a few, thus providing readers with a broader perspective and how Nazi Jewish policies involved large echelons of people that enacted, in different forms, such policies. At the forefront of this short, but provocative study, is Adolf Hitler himself. Fleming's apparent motivation stems from the recent controversy of Mr. David Irving, who apparently has far from negative views about 'Der Fuehrer' and his role in the Final Solution.
There are a few negative things to be made clear. First, Fleming, though he does an excellent job in pinpointing Hitler's responsibility and knowledge of everything pertaining to genocide, argues a far-reaching theory known as "Intentionalism." This school of thought - now largely in a minority - believe that Hitler was set in his views about murdering the Jews of Europe from the very beginning of his political life (the 1920s). By the time he became Chancellor in 1933, all he needed was the right moment to lash out. This idea is a negative, as the exhaustive efforts of historians like Christopher R. Browning and Richard Breitman, have demonstrated (and provided overwhelming evidence) that Nazi Jewish policy emerged more as a solution amidst a series of failures and frustration in somehow getting Jews out of Europe rather than as a premeditated plan. This school of thought, of which the reviewer considers himself to be a member, is called "Functionalism.

This work sufficiently reviewed the various steps (and detours) that ultimately led to the extermination of the Jews, as well as roughly five millions other "enemies of the Reich." I found it to be very helpful in illuminating why many of the tell-tale signs were swept away (e.g., why no one has found the written order from Hitler to institute the full-scale annihilation of the Jews). It is an important work in refuting the old cabal perpetrated by neo-Nazis that Hitler could not have ordered the mass murders because one cannot locate the specific order with Hitler's signature attached to it).
