A history of modern Germany, 1800-2000 by Martin Kitchen( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Organized chronologically, the book addresses all the major watersheds in German history, including the unification, the rise and fall of the German Empire, the emergence of the Weimar Republic and its eventual submergence by the Third Reich, the collapse of the Third Reich with World War II, the birth of the Federal Republic, the collapse of Communism, and reunification. Written from the perspective of post-reunification Germany, A History of Modern Germany allows readers to take a long view of German history and to trace continuities as well as changes. It examines cultural issues such as class, religion, and gender, as well as political and economic history, and includes coverage of regional history rather than merely focusing on the dominant role of Prussia."--Jacket

Speer : Hitler's architect by Martin Kitchen( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his best-selling autobiography, Albert Speer, Minister of Armaments and chief architect of Nazi Germany, repeatedly insisted he knew nothing of the genocidal crimes of Hitler's Third Reich. In this revealing new biography, author Martin Kitchen disputes Speer's lifelong assertions of ignorance and innocence, portraying a far darker figure who was deeply implicated in the appalling crimes committed by the regime he served so well. Kitchen reconstructs Speer's life with what we now know, including information from valuable new sources that have come to light only in recent years, challenging the portrait presented by earlier biographers and by Speer himself of a cultured technocrat devoted to his country while completely uninvolved in Nazi politics and crimes. The result is the first truly serious accounting of the man, his beliefs, and his actions during one of the darkest epochs in modern history, not only countering Speer's claims of non-culpability but also disputing the commonly held misconception that it was his unique genius alone that kept the German military armed and fighting long after its defeat was inevitable"--

The Third Reich : charisma and community by Martin Kitchen( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twelve years of the Third Reich cast a dark shadow over history and fierce debates still rage over the reasons why the regime survived for so long." "What was the secret of Hitler's extraordinary popularity? What was the appeal of National Socialism? Why did the German people stay loyal to the Reich even when it seemed that all was lost?" "In this impressive and often disturbing new work Martin Kitchen shows us how ordinary people can fall prey to fanatical, irrational, even apocalyptic ideas in times of seeming desperation. In exploring such key concerns as the role of ideology in National Socialism, the co-option of elites, the descent into war- over 'race and space' and the culminating horror of the holocaust, Kitchen compares Nazism to a 'secular religion' whose charismatic leader retained enormous power over the minds and bodies of an entire population even when the military and economic basis of its appeal began to erode." "Nazi Germany continues to fascinate because of its extraordinary radicalism as well as its strange and deadly mixture of the modern and the atavistic. The Third Reich: Charisma and Community is a must read for anyone who seeks to understand the destructive lure of charisma and power."--Jacket
