Inside the Third Reich: memoirs by Albert Speer( Book )

26 editions published between 1970 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inside the Third Reich is a memoir written by Albert Speer, the Nazi Minister of Armaments from 1942 to 1945, serving as Adolf Hitler's main architect before this period. It is considered to be one of the most detailed descriptions of the inner workings and leadership of Nazi Germany but is controversial because of Speer's lack of discussion of Nazi atrocities and questions regarding his degree of awareness or involvement with them." --

To the bitter end by Hans Bernd Gisevius( Book )

"When on July 20, 1944, a bomb - boldly placed inside Hitler's headquarters by Colonel Count Claus von Stauffenberg - exploded without killing the Fuhrer, the subsequent coup d'etat against the Third Reich, codenamed Valkyrie, collapsed. The conspirators were summarily shot or condemned in show trials and sadistically hanged. One of the few survivors of the conspiracy was Hans Bernd Gisevius, who had used his positions in the Gestapo and the Abwehr (military intelligence) to further the anti-Nazi plot. He knew well or had met the major figures involved in planning Valkyrie, including General August Beck, Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, Colonel Hans Oster, and von Stauffenberg. "The conspiracy was widespread, involving a wide circle of former politicians, diplomats, and government officials as well as senior military men. The anti-Hitler movement, largely motivated by moral outrage rather than by political expediency, had started as early as 1933 and involved several putsches and assassination attempts. This is an abridged edition of To the Bitter End by Hans Bernd Gisevius."--BOOK JACKET

"A la fin du mois de novembre 1942, l'armée russe contre-attaquait au nord et au sud de Stalingrad, enfermant dans un étau la Vle armée allemande, forte alors de 320 000 hommes.

C'est en témoin qu'il décrit la bataille-charnière de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale où fut atteint le sommet de la souffrance et de l'horreur, il découvre de surcroît le drame du simple soldat, les tourments de l'officier, les hésitations déchirantes qui mèneront les généraux de Hitler à la reddition, au suicide ou à la révolte
