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
