Nicholas Stargardt is one of Britain's foremost scholars of Nazi Germany. He teaches Modern European History at Magdalen College, Oxford, and is the author of Witnesses of War: Children's Lives under the Nazis (Jonathan Cape, 2005).

Review:

"A terrific book. Nicholas Stargardt brilliantly explores diaries, letters and other previously untapped sources to provide more vivid and nuanced insight than ever before achieved into the motivation of ordinary Germans fighting the most horrific war of all time" -- Ian Kershaw "A gripping new book...To write like this requires a rare sensitivity and psychological sophistication coupled with a degree of fearlessness...Stargardt impresses not only as a cultural historian. He also has an impressively strong grasp on the military narrative of the war. And this is indispensable...Stargardt has given us a truly profound piece of history" New York Times Book Review "Beautifully written and convincingly argued, this book is a must" -- Saul Friedlander, author of Nazi Germany and the Jews "A considerable success" -- Simon Heffer Literary Review "Sympathetic and nuanced portraits of German men and women... Intimate account of individual Germans' experiences of war, Stargardt explores private emotions... Beautifully written... He writes with the correct tone and sensitivity." -- Wendy Lower Times Literary Supplement
