Reviews

"One of the most important and original books to be published about the Third Reich in the past twenty years. A tour de force." -Niall Ferguson "Tooze has produced the most striking history of German strategy in the Second World War that we possess. This is an extraordinary achievement, and it places Adam Tooze in a very select company of historians indeed ... Tooze has given us a masterpiece which will be read, and admired; and it will stimulate others for a long time to come." -Nicholas Stargardt, "History Today" "It is among Adam Tooze's many virtues, in ""The Wages of Destruction: The Making and Breaking of the Nazi Economy,"" that he can write about such matters with authority, explaining the technicalities of bombers and battleships. Hovering over his chronicle are two extraordinary questions: how Germany managed to last as long as it did before the collapse of 1945 and why, under Hitler, it thought it could achieve supremacy at all." -Norman Stone, aOne of the most important and original books to be published about the Third Reich in the past twenty years.
