An extraordinary mythology has grown up around the Third Reich that hovers over political and moral debate even today. Adam Toozes controversial new book challenges the conventional economic interpretations of that period to explore how Hitlers surprisingly prescient vision- ultimately hindered by Germanys limited resources and his own racial ideology-was to create a German super-state to dominate Europe and compete with what he saw as Americas overwhelming power in a soon-to- be globalized world. The Wages of Destruction is a chilling work of originality and tremendous scholarship that is already setting off debate in Germany and will fundamentally change the way in which history views the Second World War.
