Buchbeschreibung zu „The Collapse of the Third Republic“

<p>As an international war correspondent and radio commentator, William L. Shirer didn’t just research the fall of France. He was there. In just six weeks, he watched the Third Reich topple one of the world’s oldest military powers—and institute a rule of terror and paranoia. Based on in-person conversation with the leaders, diplomats, generals, and ordinary citizens who both shaped the events of this time and lived through them on a daily basis, Shirer shapes a compelling account of historical events—without losing sight of the personal experience.</p><p>From the heroic efforts of the Freedom Fighters to the tactical military misjudgments that caused the fall and the daily realities of life for French citizens under Nazi rule, this fascinating and exhaustively documented account from one of the 20th Century’s most important historians.</p>

Über William L. Shirer

William Shirer (1904&#8211;1993) was originally a foreign correspondent for the &amp;lt;i&amp;gt;Chicago Tribune&amp;lt;/i&amp;gt; and was the first journalist hired by Edward R. Murrow for what would become a team of journalists for CBS radio. Shirer distinguished himself and quickly became known for his broadcasts from Berlin during the rise of the Nazi dictatorship through the first year of World War II. Shirer was the first of &quot;Edward R. Murrow&#39;s Boys&quot;&#8212;broadcast journalists&#8212;who provided news coverage during World War II and afterward. It was Shirer who broadcast the first uncensored eyewitness account of the annexation of Austria. Shirer is best known for his books &amp;lt;i&amp;gt;The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich&amp;lt;/i&amp;gt;, which won the National Book Award, and &amp;lt;i&amp;gt;Berlin Diary&amp;lt;/i&amp;gt;.
