Life and Death in the Third Reich - Peter Fritzsche I'm not likely to go back to this... It makes a strong case, on the basis of letters and diaries, for the broad popular support of Nazism in the 1930's, which is what one would expect. It was only the war, and the hardships that it brought in its train, that turned the public away from Hitler. A bit dry for my tastes, but this is largely a function, I think, of the genre.
