Alexander Dallin, the son of the well-known Menshevik David Dallin, published this book in 1957. More than sixty years on, it is probably still the definitive text on the subject.

Unexpected pleasure from repeated descriptions of Alfred Rosenberg as a complete and utter failure at all of his attempts to actually govern a territory he was ostensibly a minister of, with not only Himmler, but even his nominal subordinates, Koch and Lohse, walking all over him.
