Description
Shortlisted for the Whitbread Biography Award and winning the Elizabeth Longford Prize for Historical Biography, the Wolfson Literary Award, and the inaugural British Academy Prize for Fateful Choices; Making Friends with Hitler and his definitive two-volume biography of the Führer, Ian Kershaw here explains how the Third Reich was willing and able to fight to the bitter end of World War II. As the military situation grew increasingly hopeless, Wehrmacht generals fought on, their orders largely obeyed, and the regime continued its ruthless persecution of Jews, prisoners, and foreign workers. Even in the near-apocalyptic final months, when the war was plainly lost, the Nazis refused to sue for peace—a situation almost unheard of historically. Drawing on original testimony from ordinary Germans and arch-Nazis alike, Kershaw explores the entwined relationship of a state with its leader in a gripping and focused narrative that begins with the failed bomb plot in July 1944 and ends with the German capitulation in May 1945.

"Kershaw's comprehensive research, measured prose, and commonsense insight combine in a mesmerizing explanation of how and why Nazi Germany chose self-annihilation."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A superb examination of the final defeat of Hitler's tyranny ... an excellent portrait of the regime's death throes."—Booklist (starred review)

"This is an astonishing story well told by the reigning English-speaking master of Third Reich history ... a carefully considered and powerfully told saga."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
