Albert Speer: Conversations with Hitlers Architect by Joachim C. Fest

Albert Speer remains the most mysterious character of the leadership of the Nazi regime. He was the chief architect of the Third Reich and Adolf Hitlers confidant. Speer built the Reichskanzlei (official offices), discovered the Lightdome and was finally, in 1942, named as the minister for arms. But he characterised himself as apolitical, called Hitlers hatred of Jews an anomaly, and the conspirators of the 20th July placed Speers name on their cabinet list. Joachim Fest helped Albert Speer to draft his memoirs and the Spandau diaries. Between 1966 and 1981 they conducted numerous detailed conversations whose content (and at times exact wording) Joachim Fest recorded in writing after the event. The records captured in this manner are now published for the first time in this book and they provide a unique portrait of Albert Speer - of the man, his thinking and his role in the Nazi regime. They are an important contribution to understanding the psychology of the national socialist leadership and at the same time a significant document of history.
