Hitler's Henchman by Guido Knopp

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Following interviews with contemporaries and eyewitnesses, relatives and friends, and access to documents and archives, the author offers an intimate view of what went on behind the scenes in the Third Reich. He re-examines the lives of Goebbels, Goering, Himmler, Hess, Speer and Donitz, tracing their relationships with Hitler and with Nazism. These very different people shared an awestruck dedication to Hitler and a deep hatred of the Jews. Through diaries and the first-hand observations of those around them, their personalities are brought to life and their actions, to some extent, explained.
