The classic account of Nazi Germany by Hitler's Armaments Minister and right-hand man.'INSIDE THE THIRD REICH is not only the most significant personal German account to come out of the war but the most revealing document on the Hitler phenomenon yet written.
It takes the reader inside Nazi Germany on four different levels: Hitler's inner circle, National Socialism as a whole, the area of wartime production and the inner struggle of Albert Speer.
The author does not try to make excuses, even by implication, and is unrelenting toward himself and his associates...
Speer's full-length portrait of Hitler has unnerving reality.
The Fuhrer emerges as neither an incompetent nor a carpet-gnawing madman but as an evil genius of warped conceits endowed with an ineffable personal magic' NEW YORK TIMES

Review by mr_pand
A recognised classic of autobiographical history, this account by Albert Speer about his life as Hitler's architect and armaments minister is indispensable to any history student of the period, as well as being a fascinating read, providing fresh insights to Nazi Germany by focusing in detail on many events outside of the much-repeated narratives of the Holocaust. Although quite long and perhaps overly-detailed in some places, definitely worth reading.
