"How did Germany fall into the hands of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi movement, a movement that would lead the country and then all of Europe into utter moral, physical, and cultural ruin? There is no story in twentieth-century history more important to understand, and the great historian Richard Evans has written the definitive account for our time. A masterful synthesis of a vast body of scholarly work intergrated with his own important new research, Evan's history restores drama and contingency to Hitler's rise to power, even as it shows how ready Germany was by the early 1930s for such a takeover to occur. The first volume of what will ultimately be a complete three-volume history of Nazi Germany, 'The Coming of the third Reich' is a masterwork of the historian's art, and the book by which all others on the subject will be judged" -- back cover.

Well researched, with much detail. I've read a lot about the Nazi era, but this book was very comprehensive. The only fly in the ointment, for me, was the "dumbing down" of various terms that just about anyone would know in the original, e.g., "leader" for "Führer," "My Struggle" for "Mein Kampf," "Steel Helmets" for "Stahlhelm."
