Description

‘This is a book of big themes, big ideas and world changing events […] It’s a masterpiece’ History of War MagazineAt the beginning of 1940 Germany was at the pinnacle of its power.

By May 1945 Hitler was dead and Germany had suffered a disastrous defeat. Hitler had failed to achieve his aim of making Germany a super power and had left her people to cope with the endless shame of the Holocaust. In The Hitler Years ~ Disaster 1940-1945, Professor Frank McDonough charts the dramatic change of fortune for the Third Reich, and challenges long-held accounts of the Holocaust and Germany’s ultimate defeat. Despite Hitler’s grand ambitions and the successful early stages of the Third Reich’s advances into Europe, Frank McDonough argues that Germany was only ever a middle-ranking power and never truly stood a chance against the combined forces of the Allies. Praise for Frank McDonough: ‘Superbly scholarly and just as readable’ Dan Snow’The Hitler Years ~ Disaster and its companion volume, The Hitler Years ~ Triumph, are not just informative on a nearly encyclopaedic level, they are well-researched, well-structured, and well-written.

What’s more, they are relevant and challenging. Through questioning the myths that still exist, they encourage the reader to think in a new way, not just about the past, but about the present and the future’ Get History’McDonough has provided fascinating insights into the experiences of Germans in a fickle and frightening world’ The Times, on The Gestapo
