Albert Speer: His Battle with Truth by Gitta Sereny

Albert Speer was not only Hitlers architect and armaments minister, but the Fuhrers closest friend--his unhappy love. Speer was one of the few defendants at the Nuremberg Trials to take responsibility for Nazi war crimes, even as he denied knowledge of the Holocaust. Now this enigma of a man is unveiled in a monumental biography by a writer who came to know Speer intimately in his final years. Out of hundreds of hours of interviews, Sereny unravels the threads of Speers personality: the genius that made him indispensable to the German war machine, the conscience that drove him to repent, and the emotional wounds that made him susceptible to Hitlers lethal magnetism. Read as an inside account of the Third Reich, or as a revelatory unsparing yet compassionate study of the human capacity for evil, Albert Speer: His Battle with Truth is a triumph. Fascinating...Not only a major addition to our knowledge of the Third Reich, but a stunning attempt to understand the nature of good and evil.--Newsday More than a biography...It also constitutes a perceptive re-examination of the mysterious appeal of Adolf Hitler.--San Francisco Chronicle
