I started this book a long while back around the time I bought it from the now defunct Borders Books. I've thus decided to pick up where I left off. Anyway we all know from our history books, TV shows, and documentaries what Hitler was about, so I wont go there. But I will say this book is an in-depth look at the rise and fall of the Nazi regime. From what I gather it was an enormous undertaking to research, and one would have to be crazy to read this massive monstrosity of literary genius, only because its over 1,200 pages. I like big books, and I like a challenge, so with that said I'm really enjoying what I've read so far.
