really liked it
Read from August 09 to 12, 2011

Hmmm.....not sure how to rate it and how to review it. It was a very good book and meticulously researched. It seemed a little textbooky at times which made it a little difficult for me to stick with a few times. I loved the parts about Martha's social and personal life which would have been a great book all on its own! It is a very good insight into how things were during Hitler's rise to power. And really answers a lot of questions most people had like, "How could this happen and go unchecked?"

I guess I'll go with 4 stars with the caveat that people need to approach it like a school project.
