'Robert Wistrich deals with the villains and the horrors they perpetrated for the most part briskly, but at times with biting sarcasm ... the pointed or amusing quotations, the implicit approval or more often damning criticism ... all contribute to an eminently readable collection. Who's Who in Nazi Germany is something of a tour de force, with the substance and cutting edge to engross the reader, and bring him back repeatedly for more.' - History
'By cool dispassionate reporting he exposes a liturgy of evil.' - History Today

The biographies include the usual dates, births, deaths, sentences, promotions, and major deeds good or evil; a typical bio would be perhaps a page long, with many shorter and several longer. In other words, it will not do to provide a full and complete picture of anyone. Readers looking for major insight will need to look elsewhere for that. Wistrich does, however, by combining so many stories in such a compact space, manage to convey a sense of interrelationship and web-like interests and this is kind of interesting.
The book is perhaps best used as a convenient way to look up a name, useful as a guide for a writer of historical fiction or a general historical article.
Indeed, for a book of its size, just 359 pages, the number of people covered is rather extensive. At the end of the book, there is a glossary, a comparison between German and Allied military ranks, and a bibliography that is a must read in and of itself for anyone wishing to expand his or her knowledge. But it is important to keep in mind that this is a reference book. It is meant as a quick guide to supplement in-depth research, or perhaps just a good history book on the subject, such as William Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. In fact, for students of the Holocaust, the book is an invaluable resource. While there are many reference books and dictionaries pertaining to World War II, this book focuses only on Nazi Germany and is one of the best reference books available on the subject.
