Thomas Childers
The Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany

Tuesday, December 18, 2018, 5:30 PM

Based in part on German documents seldom used by previous historians, The Third Reich brings to life the Nazis’ rise to power and their use and abuse of power once they achieved it. This important book charts the dramatic, improbable rise of the Nazis; the suffering of ordinary Germans under Nazi rule; and the horrors of World War II and the genocidal Holocaust. This critically acclaimed study is the most comprehensive and readable one-volume history of Nazi Germany since the classic Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.

Thomas Childers recently retired as the Sheldon and Lucy Hackney Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author or editor of several books on modern German history and the Second World War. His 1995 book Wings of Morning, won the Athen
aeum Literary Award.
