A detailed presentation of the background, planning and execution of the murder of hundreds of Hitler's enemies on June 30, 1934. After this, there were no enemies left.

This was an amazing book. Broken down by the hour or even half-hour what happened with enough background to make everyone understand without having too much background to make it boring. I recommend this book to anyone with even the slightest interest in history or World War II. Does not disappoint.

Un des premiers Max Gallo, mais dans lequel se melent déjà les talents du romancier et la rigueur de l'historien. Un récit et une analyse impecccables de ces jours décisifs durant lesquels l'Allemagne bascula completement dans le nazisme.

A great and interesting book on the beginning stage of Adolf Hitler's rise to power in Germany and the execution of those who opposed him.
