Reviews

'Robert Wistrich deals with the villains and the horrors they perpetrated for the most part briskly, but at times with biting sarcasm … the pointed or amusing quotations, the implicit approval or more often damning criticism … all contribute to an eminently readable collection. Who's Who in Nazi Germany is something of a tour de force, with the substance and cutting edge to engross the reader, and bring him back repeatedly for more.' - History

'By cool dispassionate reporting he exposes a liturgy of evil.' - History Today
