London Review of Books
"The almost Faustian bargain between the German elite and the Nazi regime is laid bare in this original and comprehensive study. Fabrice D'Almeida's fascinating and engaging work will be valued by academic and general readers alike."
Conan Fischer, University of Strathclyde
"The way Hitler presided over a state where power was divided between big business, the chiefs of staff, the Nazi Party, the SS and other components of the Third Reich is fascinating."
The first book which provides a comprehensive account of the relation between Hitler and the Nazi movement, on the one hand, and the social and economic elites in Germany, on the other.
The author draws on new archival material to paint a detailed picture of the life of the upper classes in Germany in the 1930s and 40s and their involvement with Hitler and the Nazis.
The author is an outstanding historian and is Director of the Institute of Contemporary History in Paris.
This book will appeal to academics and general readers alike as an original and significant contribution to our further understanding of the Third Reich.
