An excellent conculsion to Evan's masterful trilogy. If you are looking for a military history, however, you won't find it here. Evan's expertise is social history, and he spends a great deal of time focusing on the evolution of the Final Solution, Nazi tyrany over conquered lands, the inner workings of the German government, and most especially, the trials and tribulations of the German people themselves. Furthermore, if you have a weak stomach for violence, this is also not the book for you. For although Evans in no way attempts to offend his readers, he also spares his readers few details of Nazi brutality. The only disapointment to me was the lack of details on German anti-partisan operations in Yugoslavia and Russia, which I fully expected would be covered in great detail, but which in reality were only touched on. The whole package however was excellent, and with it, Evans has concluded the single most comprehsive study on the subject by any individual historian.
