1st ed., 1948. Xxxviii + 458 pp. D.j., 21 x 14cm. A little loss to d.j., at top of spine & some other small chips o/w V.G. Here are the personal diaries for 1942 and 1943 of Dr. Joseph Goebbels. Here, for the first time, they revealed the innermost secrets of the "big three" Nazis as they talked among themselves; what Hitler, laying bare his soul in all-night conversations with Goebbels, really thought about Mussolini; how Goering's lethargy and failure to provide an answer to the Anglo-American 1,000-bomber raids made him the object of plot and counter-plot high up in the Party. Here, at last, we discovered what Hitler and Goebbels said to one another about Churchill, Montgomery and Cripps. And here, to mention only one of many startling glimpses of life at Hitler's headquarters, we hear of Countess Edda Ciano's fantastic attempt to bribe the Fuehrer after her father's fall.
