Hitlers Helfer by Guido Knopp( Book )

54 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ohne Hitler wäre das 'Dritte Reich' nicht denkbar. Der Diktator aber war auf Helfer angewiesen, die sich ganz in seine Dienste stellten. Sie waren die Träger der Macht - und ihre Vollstrecker. Hitlers Paladine erledigten, was Hitler befohlen hatte. Sie prägten das Gesicht der Diktatur. Goebbels, Göring, Himmler, Hess, Speer, Dönitz - ihre Bedeutung im Machtgeflecht der Naziherrschaft, der Grad ihrer Verstrickung in die Verbrechen des Regimes waren höchst unterschiedlich. Doch die Psychogramme dieser Männer haben eines gemeinsam: Sie geben eine Antwort auf die Frage, wie es zu den Greueltaten der Nazizeit kommen konnte
Holokaust by Guido Knopp( Book )

33 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No crime in the twentieth century has so deeply shocked mankind as the Holocaust. And none has so stubbornly resisted every attempt to explain it. More than six million people were murdered, and countless more endured horrific suffering. Accompanying the Channel Four television series, Guido Knopp's disturbing account is the most complete history of the Holocaust to date. It reveals the appalling truth using the most recent historical research, including minutes of daily briefings by Joseph Goebbels, private papers of the SS Einsatzgruppen in charge of mass murder, and East German State Security documents detailing the deportation of Jews. - Jacket flap
Hitler's women by Guido Knopp( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guido Knopp turns the spotlight on the principal women in Hitler's life. Here are six vivid pen-portraits of women whose lives, different as they were, were all fatally bound up with that of Hitler himself. Eva Braun, Hitler's mistress, whom he always kept in the background until the final bizarre marriage ceremony in the bunker before they died together; Magda Goebbels, a devotee of Hitler, wife of the Reich Propaganda Minister, and Nazi s̀uper-mum', who ended by killing herself and her six young children; Winifred Wagner, the English-born daughter-in-law of composer Richard Wagner, who introduced Hitler into influential circles and later put Wagner's music to the service of the Reich; Leni Riefenstahl, the brilliant film-maker who flirted with Hitler and lent her talent to the Nazis, but claimed to be a non-political artist; Zarah Leander, the hugely popular Swedish singer and film star, who gave Hitler advice on his hair-style and boosted the morale of the Wehrmacht; and finally the legendary screen goddess Marlene Dietrich, who, unlike the other five, resisted all the temptations of power and wealth in Hitler's Germany. She emigrated to the USA and became a committed and high-profile opponent of the Nazi regime. Supported by photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, and the words of close friends and colleagues of those portrayed, Guido Knopp's account brings back to life a generation who, with a few courageous exceptions, succumbed to enticement and connived in atrocity

Tausend Jahre deutsche Geschichte anhand von drei zentralen Fragen: Wer sind wir? Woher kommen wir? Wohin gehen wir?

Dabei spiegelt sich in der deutschen Frage auch immer die Geschichte des europäischen Kontinents. Begleitet von einer 10-teiligen ZDF-Serie spannt diese groß angelegte Dokumentation den Bogen von Otto I., dem Großen, der 936 in Aachen zum deutschen König gekrönt wird, bis hin zu Otto von Bismarcks Reichsgründung und zum letzten deutschen Kaiser Wilhelm II
The SS : a warning from history by Guido Knopp( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The best known but least understood organ of the Nazi state, the SS grew from a minor politician's small, unpaid bodyguard into a force which dominated the racial, cultural and professional spheres of the most powerful empire Europe has ever seen. Often referred to as 'the state within a state', the SS was Heinrich Himmler's personal fiefdom and its influence pervaded all walks of German life, both private and public. Its tentacles extended into the army and police, the business world and of course the death camps." "The author reveals Himmler to be a man despised but indulged by Hitler who was obsessed with crackpot theories of Germanic mythology and deeply involved in the Final Solution. He assesses the career of Reinhard Heydrich, who put the organisational muscle and ruthlessness into the SS. The Totenkopf Brigade, set up specifically to run the concentration camps and death camps, is examined, as is the Waffen-SS, the military formation which killed thousands of Jews and partisans across Eastern Europe and fought bitterly against the Allies in Normandy. The postwar story of the SS is also outlined, from clandestine organisations of former SS men to the activities of ex-Nazis and neo-Nazis today." "Supported by photographs and the words of former SS men, their close friends and colleagues, Guido Knopp brings back to life a generation whose fanaticism and violence shaped the identity of the Third Reich.
