Add to compare list. Description In this masterly new work, acclaimed historian Giles MacDonogh explores the moment when Hitler gambled everything. Until , Hitler could be dismissed as a ruthless but efficient dictator, a problem to Germany alone; after he was clearly a threat to the entire world. In that year The Third Reich came of age and the Fuhrer showed his hand - bringing Germany into line with Nazi ideology and revealing long-held plans to take back those parts of Europe lost to 'Greater Germany' after the First World War.
The sequence of events began in January with the purging of the army, and escalated with the merger with Austria - the Anschluss, and the first persecutions of Viennese Jewry. In the following months Hitler moulded the nation to his will.
