Read in January, 2005

This book, besides being inaccurate, is dangerously revisionist. It was the first book we read in a grad seminar of German history, and I would still swear that he assigned it mainly to see who was brave enough to say the obvious. In this case, that was "he blames the Holocaust, which he misrepresents, on the 'outsider', the Austrian, Hitler. He thinks someone took those poor god-loving people astray." The book wasn't dry, it was somewhat compelling, but it was overwhelmingly inaccurate. It would be great to use in schools with middle schoolers, except that he is somewhat frequently wrong.
