A more succinct understand of the years between 1920 - 1945 of Hitler would be hard to find. Mr Maracin has filtered out much of the historical minutia belabored by other historians of Nazi Germany during this period and given us a quick 209 page read for those with a mild passing interest on how this to barbarism came to be. Complete with full photos of accomplices and some victims of that weekend in 1934.

Startling parallels of America today, from the Occupy Wall Street Movement, the black panther leader intimidating people at the poles, the voter fraud where voters are rounded up and given cigarettes to go vote, the suspension of the House rules for passing Obamacare without a vote using a budget reconciliation rule, the printing and subsequent devaluation of US currency. Chilling to read this book and to witness it happening right here, right now.l
Very good book. History of the 48 hours in 1934 when Hitler consolidated his power by killing an estimated 1000 people.
Interesting book that shed light on the beginning of the 3rd reich.
