Interweaving a broad narrative of the wars progress with personal testimony from a wide range of people, from generals to front-line soldiers, from Hitler Youth activists to middle-class housewives, Richard Evans lays bare the dynamics of a society plunged into war at every level. The great battles and events of the war are here, from the Battle of Stalingrad to Hitlers suicide in the bunker, but just as important is the recreation of the daily experience of ordinary Germans in wartime, under the growing impact of the mass bombing of Germanys towns and cities. At the centre of the book is the Nazi extermination of Europes Jews, set in the context of Hitlers genocidal plans for the racial restructuring of Europe. [publisher]
