The story of Nazi Germany as told by Albert Speer.
This is an incredibly detailed account of Albert Speer's life in the Nazi regime - but the detail is often tied to his profession of architecture and how he became in essence Hitler's architect. He describes how he fell under the spell of Hitler and most of this memoir was written while he spent 20 years in prison after WWII for his position as the Director of Armaments for Nazi Germany and the use of slave labor for factory work, something he barely mentions in the book. He shows that much of the Nazi leadership was out for personal gain, had no idea what was really going on in war-torn Germany, nor did they care, and shows Hitler to be an inept leader who only at the end caused those around him to question his sanity.
