Overview: As a leader of the twentieth century's most evil regimes, Joseph Goebbel's legacy is his work constructing the mythic image of Hitler during his rise to power and his catastrophic rule of Germany. In Doctor Goebbels, Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel reveal the man behind the Nazi propaganda machine, beginning with his idyllic childhood in Germany and ending in a dramatic death by suicide. Part biography and part horror, Manvell and Fraenkel delve deep into the mystery shrouding one of Hitler's most evil henchman. Using first-hand accounts from the Nuremberg Trials; by Goebbel's sister Maria; and from the fiance of his youth, Else, Goebbel's carefully crafted character is ripped apart to reveal a boy determined to overcome youthful disabilities and prove, above all, his devotion and dedication to his country. Doctor Goebbels is a landmark work of World War II history and delivers the kind of details that only true scholarship can provide. Written with flair and polished with care, this account is sure to leave readers shocked and surprised at the life of the Fuhrer's "Minister of Hate."

"July 20, 1944. Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg carried a time bomb in a briefcase into a conference with Adolf Hitler. After wedging the briefcase directly in front of Hitler under a table, Stauffenberg took his leave. Only ill luck and divine providence could have caused what happened next; a junior staffer accidentally kicked the case, moving it further from Hitler. When the bomb exploded, four died, but none was the megalomaniacal Führer. Men from all walks of German life--the army, military intelligence, civilian life--came together at great personal risk to conspire over a span of six years to save their beloved Germany from the clutches of a madman and halt a further descent into war. This is the incredible documented account of their work and collaboration with 'Department Z,' the twenty-four individuals who operated under the leadership of Admiral Wilhelm Canaris to secretly engineer this intricate scheme to kill Adolf Hitler and take over the Third Reich. Only by a matter of minutes and inches did these courageous men fail in their daring plot, changing the course of history. Meet the conspirators and learn the plots behind The Canaris Conspiracy, a near-continuous web of planning and frustrated action which came nearer to achieving the longed-for coup d'état than anyone realizes."

An examination of the nature of those who initiated and carried out the largest racial massacre in the history of mankind, the Nazi genocide, and especially the Holocaust of the Jews. Beginning with a short history of racism and antisemitism in Europe, dwells on the personalities and activities of Nazi mass murderers, including Hitler, Himmler, Heydrich, Eichmann, Höss, Irma Grese, Ohlendorf, Hans Frank, and SS physicians. Describes the concentration camps, focusing on Auschwitz-Birkenau, particularly the horrific conditions there and the mass murder process. Relates the 1944 escape of Vrba and Wetzler, who brought their testimony to the free world. Discusses the Allies' reactions to information about the genocide, and specifically their inaction, and the failure of the Jewish leadership in Hungary in 1944 to alert the Jews concerning the impending menace. Reflects, also, on the legacy of the Nazi past in postwar Germany, the effect of this crime on the conscience of the German people, and the significance of the Nazi war crimes trials for Germans
