    The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich

    I passed by a book fair at lunch, and picked up this book. Don't tell me how it ends, and spoil it on me! :rolleyes:

    I enjoy reading pretty much anything I can find on WWII, be it fictional or non.

    Has anyone else read this book? What did you think of it?

    I read it.

    Not going to lie though, the density of it is hard to maintain. I feel like I have a better understanding of the situation in Germany in the timespan of the book, but there is no way I could reel off names, dates, or a number of facts within it.

    I love the way he insists that every nazi party functionary ever was a closet homosexual. Shirer is his name, right?

    It was Col. Mustard, in the kitchen, with the rope.

    I tried reading 'Infantry Attacks' by Rommel, got about 50 pages in, couldn't get any further. It was translated which didn't help, but it was also mainly battle descriptions it seemed, stating positions & enemy strength, wind conditions, etc. Made for v tough going.
