About the Author
William L. Shirer has had a distinguished career as foreign correspondent, news commentator, and historian of the contemporary world. He reported from Berlin for the Universal News Service and for CBS on the rise of the Nazis and he covered their all as a war correspondent. Out of these reports grew his best-sellers Berlin Diary and The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, which has sold more copies for the Book-of-the-Month Club than any other book in the club's history.
Shirer is the author of many other best-selling books, including The Collapse of the Third Republic and an autobiography, Twentieth Century Journey: A Memoir of a Life and the Times, composed of three volumes -- The Start: 1904-1930, The Nightmare Years: 1930-1940, and A Native's Return: 1945-1988. He is at work on a new book about the last two weeks of Tolstoy's life.

Even if you think you have all you need to know about the conduct of this country during the war, the material here will likely surprise you. The only caveat is that Shirer, who spent most of the war in Europe as a correspondent and had contact with or was in places where many of the Nazi bigwigs spoke, cannot help to frequently insert his own opinion. However much this colors the narrative it stands alone from the verbatim quotes, diary entries, and other documents, so at least for me it was useful. Other might consider it over the top.
