Brief But Exceptional

An exceptionally well written and presented insight into the Third Reich from its very beginnings to its downfall in the rubble of Berlin in 1945. This is an particularly informative look at it subject matter and due to being a “Brief History” succeeds in avoiding getting bogged down in too much detail and statistics.

This audiobook would be ideally for anyone with a passing interest in WW2 or from an education / student point of view and would provide an excellent taster for anyone unsure if they would find the other audiobooks that are available but are a lot longer in length!

One of the darkest periods of European History

What did you like most about A Brief History of the Third Reich: The Rise and Fall of the Nazis?

Sean Barrett is one of my favourite narrators and his authoritative and at times slightly amazed ( at the sheer horror of it all) voice enhances this production

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Brief History of the Third Reich: The Rise and Fall of the Nazis?

The descriptions of the almost school-yard efforts of the senior Nazis to impress Their Hero Hitler by outdoing one another

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Cry- how did it happen and could it happen again ??

Ear opening

I listened to much of this while walking around Berlin. There are many books which recount the events leading up to the Second World War but few which so cogently explain how the Nazis were brought into power _democratically_ and how they retained power until the third Reich unravelled.
