Inside Hitler's bunker : the last days of the Third Reich by Joachim C Fest( Book )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 1,713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final days of World War II are related in a study that furnishes details of Hitler's final days in the bunker and the torment on the streets of Germany's cities and towns as the Third Reich collapsed under the weight of American, British, French, and Russian forces. There is nothing in recent history that comes close to the cataclysmic events of the spring of 1945. Never before has the defeat of a nation been accompanied by such monumental loss of life, such utter destruction. Author Joachim Fest shows that the devastation was the result of Hitler's determination to take the entire country down with him; he would make sure that his enemies would find only a wasteland, where once there was a thriving civilization. Fest describes in riveting detail the final weeks of the war, from the desperate battles that raged night and day in the ruins of Berlin, fought by boys and old men, to the growing paranoia that marked Hitler's mental state--his utter disregard for the well being of both soldiers and civilians-- to his suicide and the efforts of his loyal aides to destroy his body before the advancing Russian armies reached Berlin. Inside Hitler's Bunker combines meticulous research with spellbinding storytelling and sheds light on events that, for those who survived them, were nothing less than the end of the world
Speer : the final verdict by Joachim C Fest( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1,436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unemployed architect when Hitler came to power in 1933, Albert Speer was soon designing the Third Reich's most important buildings. In 1942 Hitler appointed him Armaments Minister and he quadrupled production, an astonishing achievement that kept the German Army in the field and prolonged the war. Yet Speer's life was full of contradictions. The only member of the Nazi elite with whom Hitler developed more than a purely functional relationship (he has even been called "Hitler's unrequited love"), Speer was always an outsider in Hitler's inner circle. He saw himself as an artist, above the crass power struggles of the roughnecks around him, but his enormous ambition blinded him to the crimes in which he played a leading role. Brilliantly illustrated, this gripping account of one man's rise and fall helps explain how Germany descended so far into crime and barbarism

132 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Albert Speer : conversations with Hitler's architect by Joachim C Fest( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albert Speer, the chief architect of the Third Reich and Adolf Hitler's confidant, remains the most mysterious character of the leadership of the Nazi regime. He built the 'Reichskanzlei' (official offices), discovered the 'Lightdome', and was finally, in 1942, named as the minister for armaments. But he characterized himself as apolitical and called Hitler's hatred of Jews an anomaly, and the conspirators of the 20th July placed his name on their cabinet list." "Joachim Fest helped Speer to draft his 'memoirs' and the Spandau diaries. Between 1966 and 1981 they conducted numerous detailed conversations whose content (and at times exact wording) Fest recorded in writing after the event. The records captured in this manner are now published for the first time in this book and provide a unique portrait of Albert Speer - of the man, his thinking and his role in the Nazi regime. They are an important contribution to understanding the psychology of the National Socialist leadership and at the same time a significant document of history."--Jacket
