Is this the best book to read for a comprehensive overview of Hitler’s Germany? Is it very impartial or just a kosher rendition of history?

Is jewish propaganda see the greatest story never told if you want to know the truth

That editorial is very pro america as far as I remember, your best bet when it comes to history is to take piece from every source and come to your own conclusion.

Shirer is a journalist, so I suppose if you need a hard uncomfortable toilet paper supply. Applebaum of Nazis.

Extremely outdated. Read Kershaw.

It's been dismissed by most historians now as disingenuous, misleading either by accident or on purpose and outdated. I imagine there's probably better choices available now.

Stormfag propaganda. Read firsthand documents if you don't want someone's agenda shoved down your throat.

That's also propaganda. Look at both, the truth will be somewhere in between.

>somewhere in between
Worst hermeneutic assumption ever.

Credible narratives will be tied to the interpretation of apposite deep archival material, thorough literature survey, quality historiography, and a defensible theoretical perspective.

Nah senpai, history is a horseshoe theory where ancient aliens Nazi episode and werewolf women of the SS are both true.

I'm going to be honest though, I'm not sure we are currently able to understand the third reich. Read rise and fall because it is important to historiographical conflict today, but also read newer ones (like the third reich a new history for example) Ian Kershaw, Richard Evans three part history is really quite good as well, and yes read David Irving too but before you do that, read Schwarz's biography of Konrad Adenauer, which views the Weimar era, Nazi era, and post war era from the right Hitler was never able to win over. Spengler's hour of decision is also a good commentary here as well.

You simply can't understand the actual historical Nazis from one book or outlook, it's frankly impossible, and every question you probe goes so much deeper than surface level interpretations pleb history can provide.

I don't know where you stand, but more people really need to sincerely poor over this period.

it's pretty good, but really old and outdated. Best book(s) is Richard Evan's trilogy.

Sad that there are people who took this bait as a correct good post.

A journalist who lived in Germany and read the third Reich's documents.

Proof? Evan praised it in his book.
>inb4 Irving and any other openly anti Semites that were pandering to neo Nazis.
