From 1946 to 1966, while serving the prison sentence handed down from the Nuremburg War Crimes tribunal, Albert Speer penned 1,200 manuscript pages of personal memoirs. Titled Erinnerungen ("Recollections") upon their 1969 publication in German, Speer's critically acclaimed personal history was translated into English and published one year later as Inside the Third Reich. Long after their initial publication, Speer's memoir continues to provide one of the most detailed and fascinating portrayals of life within Hitler's inner circles, the rise and fall of the third German empire, and of Hitler himself.

Speer chronicles his entire life, but the majority of Inside the Third Reich focuses on the years between 1933 and 1945, when Speer figured prominently in Hitler's government and the German war effort as Inspector General of Buildings for the Renovation of the Federal Capital and later as Minister of Arms and Munitions. Speer's recollections of both duties foreground the impossibility of reconciling Hitler's idealistic, imperialistic ambitions with both architectural and military reality. Throughout, Inside the Third Reich remains true to its author's intentions. With compelling insight, Speer reveals many of the "premises which almost inevitably led to the disasters" of the Third Reich as well as "what comes from one man's holding unrestricted power in his hands." -- Bertina Loeffler -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

'INSIDE THE THIRD REICH is not only the most significant personal German account to come out of the war but the most revealing document on the Hitler phenomenon yet written. It takes the reader inside Nazi Germany on four different levels: Hitler's inner circle, National Socialism as a whole, the area of wartime production and the inner struggle of Albert Speer. The author does not try to make excuses, even by implication, and is unrelenting toward himself and his associates...Speer's full-length portrait of Hitler has unnerving reality. The Fuhrer emerges as neither an incompetent nor a carpet-gnawing madman but as an evil genius of warped conceits endowed with an ineffable personal magic.' NEW YORK TIMES.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Inside the Third Reich is a "must read" book for anyone interested in World War II or Nazi Germany. As Hitler's Minster of Armament and War Production, Albert Speer's memoirs provide firsthand information on the German leadership and war efforts during this period. The book covers events from his early childhood to his imprisonment in Spandau Prison, as a Nazi war criminal. In the course of telling his own story, Speer also provides valuable insights into other key players in Nazi regime, such as Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goering, Martin Borman, Karl Doenitz, Joseph Goebbels, Rudolf Hess, Heinrich Himmler, and many other high-ranking Nazi leaders.
Albert Speer served under Adolf Hitler for over 14 year and was one of Hitler's closest associates during most of that period. As Speer testified at Nuremberg, "If Hitler had had any friends, I would certainly been one of his close friends." Speer initially served as one of Hitler's architects and later as the Minister of Armament and War Production. Sharing a passion for design and architecture, Speer quickly impressed Hitler after completing several projects in record time. In the pre-war period, Hitler was obsessed with constructing monumental builds that would characterize Germany as the great "1,000 year Reich" that he envisioned. Having proven his ability to successfully manage complex projects, Speer used these same talents to make himself indispensable as the head of all Germany armament and production efforts in support of the war. Many of the principles he used over fifty years ago, are very similar to the quality initiatives used today. Sharing a passion for architecture and proving his management acumen, Speer was quickly accepted to Hitler's inner circle.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Albert Speer spent exactly 20 years in Spandau prison after the fall of Germany and his subsequent trial at Nuremberg. He was alone amongst those high-ranking Nazis who were closest to Hitler, to escape execution. To say that for a certain amount of time, his life hung very much in the balance would be putting it mildly. Yet thanks to the failure of the Russians, who wanted him dead, Speer lived on and produced this remarkable memoir of a world gone mad. One hardly thinks that any other single Nazi could have produced a document as worthy of our attention. How curious the fates are.
Part of what kept Speer alive at the end of the war was a certain identifiable integrity, which comes through in the book. Perhaps he is also masking certain people and shielding us from the absolute truth of certain events, but in the main, one senses he is concerned with the truth and is not afraid of it being revealed. It may be a small thing to say that his greatest accomplishment as a Reich minister was to prevent Hitler from completely paralysing Germany in the final months and weeks. Yet I think it is indicative of his character, which therefore reassures us about the worth of this book, that he bit the bullet at the end, and refused to participate any further in what had clearly become the final ranting of his erstwhile belovèd Führer. One should definitely read Speer for a further appreciation of the subject matter, to round out any non-German sources. I think we can be quite happy that he did not, in the end, get the chop.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
After watchiing the not-so-hot Nuremberg movie on TNT, I was once again fascinated by all things WWII, and particularly by the "good Nazi", Hitler's architect, Albert Speer, whose life was spared in the trials -- instead he was sentenced to 20 years in prison. This book chronicles with a seemingly honest voice the years leading up to the war, the war itself, and in particular of Speer's strangely remote friendship/comradery with "his Fuhrer". Hitler emerges in this book as more human than we usually give him credit for; still, as the author admits, his descent into power-mad horror is inhuman at best. This book is most troubling as an eyewitness account -- and, even in its "honest" retrospect -- of an entire people's willing ignorance of the evil brewing in their very backyard, all in the name of personal success, comfort, achievement at last. The Germans were so thirsty for a period of relative calm that they welcomed Hitler and embraced his butchery, all the while pretending they did not know what was happening...I am not sure it is entirely convincing, to imagine that Speer, not only the architect of Hitler's new vision for Germany, but eventually too his Master of Armaments, for God's sakes, was so indebted to his leader for his achievements in professional life that he simply DID NOT KNOW what was happening in places such as Auschwitz...this is a deeply troubling memoir, but, even in the moral questions it raises, deserves to be read as a first-person chronicle of life with the most horrifying world leader in modern times.

Format: Taschenbuch
I first read 'Inside the the Third Reich' at age 19 and the message of this book has been with me ever since. Quite simply it is a true fable of evil corrupting good. Throughout Speer's early account one almost feels that this could be anyone, at anytime. Only as world events change at an astouding pace around him, are we reminded that Speer lived in a Germany that was soon to be the home to one of the greatest evils the world had ever known. Speer tells us of the fateful night he first heard Hitler speak, and how he joined the Nazi party bare hours later. The portrait Speer paints of Hitler is not one of the evil demegouge that history would prove him to be, but rather one of an inspired leader who was doing all he could to lift his nation out of economic ruin and national despair. It was this illusion that Hitler projected that allowed good and honorable men, like Speer, to be corrupted. This is an entertaining book for any amatuer historian, and more, a very important one for anyone who wonders how a nation of philosiphers, and Christians, aritists and engineers, could sell it's very soul to evil.
