Part 3 of the The Third Reich Trilogy series.

							Adroitly blending narrative, description, and analysis, Richard J. Evans portrays a society rushing headlong to self-destruction and taking much of Europe with it. Interweaving a broad narrative of the war's progress from a wide range of people, Evans reveals the dynamics of a society plunged into war at every level. The great battles and events of the conflict are here, but just as telling is Evans' re-creation of the daily experience of ordinary Germans in wartime. At the center of the book is the Nazi extermination of the Jews. The final book in Richard J. Evans' three-volume history of Hitler's Germany, hailed "a masterpiece" by The New York Times, The Third Reich at War lays bare the most momentous and tragic years of the Nazi regime.

"This is history in the grand style, the kind of large-scale narrative that few historians dare to write these days. It is difficult to imagine how it could be improved upon, let alone surpassed." - The Washington Post

"[Evans'] three-volume shaping up to be a masterpiece. Fluidly narrated, tightly organized and comprehensive." - William Grimes, The New York Times

"The second volume of Cambridge historian Evans' trilogy on the Third a major achievement. No other recent synthetic history has quite the range and narrative power of Evans' work. When complete, Evans' trilogy will take its place alongside Ian Kershaw's monumental two-volume biography of Hitler as the standard works in English." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"A superb account of the growth and day-to-day functioning of the Nazi state." - Kirkus Reviews
