Summary The twelve years, from 1933 to 1945, when Adolf Hitler was dictator of Nazi Germany stand out as one of the most remarkable periods in the history of the twentieth century. In many books on this subjct, the personality of Hitler is so dominant that significant political, social, economic and international developments often retreat into the background. In this book Frank McDonough explains the dramatic history of the Nazi period within a wider context, which not only takes account of Hitler's role, but also examines the broader dimensions of Nazi rule. By isolating key problem areas within current historical debates and by including a selection of primary source documents, this book provides a stimulating and balanced introduction to the study of Hitler and Nazi Germany
