Joseph Goebbels Reviews


'...a welcome addition to the burgeoning library of 'perpetrator studies'.' - Literary Review

' a detailed and well-written insight into the man at the heart of the Nazi propaganda machine .In his examination of Goebbels, Toby Thacker has produced a valuable addition to the printed history of the 1930s and 1940s.' - Britain at War Magazine

'Thacker's reassessment is convincing and welcome. Crucially, his new biography is the first to be written since the entire set of Goebbels' diaries has been published. He writes well, and offers the reader a number of important new contentions and insights.' -BBC History Magazine

'Judicious, insightful and the first biography based on the entire available diary record. This book is a must for anybody interested in Hitler's Germany and the origins of the Holocaust'.

- Brendan Simms, Peterhouse, Cambridge University, UK

'[Thacker's] biography really is the first step towards a reassessment of the role and significance of Joseph Goebbels in National Socialism.' - Daniel Muhlenfeld, Bulletin, German Historical Institute London.

"...the author seeks to dispel at least some of the myths and legends surrounding Goebbels, which he discussed and considered at the beggining as a sort of stock-taking of the image of Goebbels still prevalant today." German Historical Institute London
