William Shirer, a longtime foreign correspondent, worked in the Third Reich from to , leaving only when it became clear he and his family were no longer safe. He returned to Germany in to report on the Nuremberg trials. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich was published in , barely a generation after the end of the war. Because of Shirer's proximity and access to the majors players of the Third Reich and certainly because war was exploding all around him, the book has an immediacy and intimacy that sets it apart from a traditional historical examination of events.
It also contains Shirer's interpretations, suppositions and ruminations. As an American of German-Italian-Norwegian descent, I had a very hard time with Shirer's characterization of Germans as possessing a predilection for cruelty and war. There are few nations that remain exempt from this pointed finger.
But it begs the question that even Shirer could not answer: how did the atrocities of the war escape the outrage of the German people? Shirer presents clues and circumstances which serve as a caution to us all. And many of which I recognize in today's socially and politically polarized America that feeds on propaganda and is increasingly indulgent of politicians' idiocy and rejection of facts.
