Editorial Reviews


Jonathan Maxwell s compellingly readable book takes the reader inside Nazi Germany on many different levels. The book provides a portrait of a people and a country in continuous flux, from the events that led to Hitler s popularity, to the Hitler Youth movement, to the embrace of national socialism, to Hitler s warped inner circle. A fine piece of work, Maxwell s book will appeal to general readers interested in the inherent drama of Hitler s unnerving rise to power and his subsequent apocalyptic fall. --Jean Sasson, New York Times bestselling author

From the Back Cover

Searching for a sense of understanding and a hope for future prevention, Jonathan Maxwell explores the different officials of the Holocaust, giving an extensive background of each. He investigates mental defects, childhood occurrences, and family situations of these horrific leaders and identifies the “desk murderers” (those who did not directly kill, but gave orders to kill). In this concentrated look at the events that took place, Maxwell attempts to identify the key causes of the mass murders in an effort to prevent future Holocausts.
