Kurzbeschreibung

What happened inside the infamous 'Wolf's Lair', one of Hitler's headquarters?

Who was the Nazi serial killer?

And who was the man who 'started' World War Two?

These are just some of the questions explored in Roger Moorhouse's collection of essays 'The Wolf's Lair: Inside Hitler's Germany'.

Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich continue to fascinate the world. But there are still many stories to be uncovered, and new angles on the conflict to be explored.

In this brilliant collection of articles and essays, Roger Moorhouse examines some of the more obscure aspects of the history of Hitler’s Germany, whilst also using personal stories to expertly illustrate the great themes of World War Two.

In one essay Moorhouse wrestles with the question of how much Berliners knew about the ongoing Holocaust. In another, he investigates the fascinating story of ‘Germania’; the planned rebuilding of Berlin, asking what the plan tells us about Nazi Germany.

Roger Moorhouse is a best-selling historian. A specialist in modern German, he is author of “Killing Hitler” (2006), an account of the many plots on Hitler’s life, and of the critically acclaimed “Berlin at War” (2010), which used first-hand accounts to illuminate the little-told story of the civilian experience of wartime Berlin. He has also been a regular contributor to both the ‘BBC History Magazine’ and ‘History Today’ for over a decade.

Praise for Roger Moorhouse:

'Roger Moorhouse has built a formidable and justified reputation as one of our leading authorities on all aspects of the Third Reich. In addition to his sound scholarship and original thinking his writing is clear and wonderfully accessible. The Wolf's Lair shows him at the height of his powers' (Nigel Jones, Author of 'Countdown to Valkyrie'; 'Hitler's Heralds and The War Walk)

‘As a leading historian of modern Germany, Moorhouse has chronicled a largely unknown story with scholarship, narrative verve and an awful, harrowing immediacy.' (Sunday Telegraph)

‘Moorhouse is particularly good on the small-arms fire of history, those illuminating details or unknown life-stories’ (Andrew Roberts, Financial Times)

‘[Moorhouse] produces something rare: a popular history account that will satisfy both general readers and professional historians.’ (Irish Times)

‘Moorhouse’s meticulous and painstaking research is matched by his narrative verve, wide-ranging sympathy and eye for the telling detail.’ (The Independent)

‘Roger Moorhouse tells this awe-inducing modern morality tale movingly, skilfully and fluently. (Frederick Taylor, Literary Review)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Learned new things 6. Februar 2013
Von Troy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I read Hitler: 222 Quotes because I wanted a fast idea of how Hitler saw the world. ( Highly recommend it) But the Wolf Lair was a fantastic read for brief history. If your looking for newer information than I think this is a good read. Serial killers during world war 2? That was a really cool angle I didn't know about and I wish it was more detailed, it was an entertaining chapter. This book doesn't have the 'boring' factor I think most history books have.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting but Want More 8. Januar 2013
Von Jon Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an interesting book that looks at a few specific issues related to Nazi Germany. I was particularly fascinated by the chapter about the SS Bahn Serial Killer - the idea of a serial killer at loose in wartime Nazi Berlin is just so interesting. The book is a short and easy read. It's basically a collection of articles the author wrote for several magazines. My only wish is that it had been longer - would love to see more articles on subjects like this during the Nazi era.

5.0 von 5 Sternen New Insights into Hitler's Germany 13. Juli 2013
Von Richard C. Geschke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This short and concise vignette of stories titled The Wolf's Lair: Inside Hitler's Germany brings forth a plethora of knowledge never quite identified in other historical histories of this era.

The first story titled Hitler in the Wolfsschanze gives the fine particulars of Hitler's Wolfs Lair hideaway in East Prussia. Roger Moorhouse brings forth a new way of looking at how Hitler lived his daily routine in this Prussian fortress. As Moorhouse points out Hitler was indeed not a man of the people. Unlike Churchill, who would constantly tour bombed out areas in Great Britain and travel all over the world to seek victory at war, Hitler was buttoned up in places such as the Wolfs Lair seeking only selective company of his choosing. In doing this he did not see the sufferings his actions caused in fighting WWII.

Moorhouse also goes into detail of the persona of the Nazis who followed Hitler in the guise of the mysterious Alfred Naujocks. Again Moorhouse brings forth an interesting story of a mid- level Nazi dealing with life during the twelve year Nazi rule. What makes it interesting is that Naujocks was an evil doer but when captured after WWII he was telling the truth of what transpired but his captures did not believe him.

Other sections which Moorhouse delves into will indeed capture the reader's attention such as the ninety minute mid-level Wannsee Conference and the actions of one Claus Schenk Von Stauffenberg.

In the end Moorhouse brings up the plans of Albert Speer and his strange fellowship with Adolph Hitler in the planning of a new super-city of Berlin to be called Germania. Moorhouse explains the planning and reasoning of this most ambitious plan. In the end Moorhouse brings to us that Germania was indeed a very Hitlerian concept which again brings forth Hitler's avoidance of dealing with people face to face. Moorhouse contends that Hitler's architecture is devoid of people and that all Hitler sees is the stones and materials that made the buildings. It was about the buildings and not about the people. His plans and dreams for the future were made of concrete and stone and ignored the people. Such was Hitler's concept of life. Hitler was isolated and in the end desolate in his Berlin bunker.

The summary that Moorhouse brings forth in the end of the book is that Hitler was of misanthropic heart. His love was for only the buildings themselves and not of the people who would live and work in this dynamic. Moorhouse tells us what Hitler truly was. This is a remarkable book as it gives much food for thought and a unique way of looking at Hitler's Germany.

Von Karl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Shows a different side of Hitler's mind. How he used slave labor and humans in all races to build his dreams of evil. It also shows lack of brains on the part of Albert Speer who is just as bad as Hitler. We all know about the war but this is a different view. Tkross

2.0 von 5 Sternen Same old story 17. Juli 2013
Von white beard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book thinking I would learn something new about that period of history. I was disappointed. It has the same old reiteration of facts already printed in a dozen other books.
