Doctor Goebbels: His Life and Death Reviews

    This is the best biography of Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels I've read so far. Its reading might be well supplemented by a reading of the edition of his journals edited by Trevor-Roper.

    Very good biography of the Propaganda Mastermind behind one of the worse totalitarian regimes the world has yet seen. Based on his diaries and published works, taken with a lot of care, coordinated by his personal life and different accounts from people who knew Goebbels. Very interesting to have such an up and close view of: the emotions, resents and motivations of the main characters of this chapter of History; the dissent among the national-socialists; the lack of active interest of Hitler as Chancellor delegating on his lackeys the administrative work; or the initial piousness of a catholic Goebbels (who nevertheless arranged a scheme not to pay back the grant given by the very same Church).

    This is a short Goebbels biography, its ealry years are in chronilogical order, the raise to power and the beginning of the war is presented mostly in a topical arrangement, and the authors return back to a chronological order for the description of the end of the war. The beginning and the end of Gobbels life are more detailed than the years the Nazi raised to power to the first years of the war, which are briefly described. Not a page turner this book is in fact interesting to read and the WWII passionate will certainly find some unknown facts.

    OCR with no edits?I found this book disjointed and hard to follow. Events were relayed in random order and sometimes without dates to give context. It was poorly edited and gave me the impression that this ebook was created by doing an OCR of the print copy with no human editing. I am certain that you can find a better source if you are interested in this subject. Perhaps the actual book, rather than the ebook.

    Goebbels isn't a particularly interesting character, and the history of the Third Reich has been thoroughly documented in many formats so the writer has an uphill struggle to keep the interest of the reader. However, the portions of the book about the Nazi rise to political power contained some interesting perspectives as did his views on other leading Nazis and perspective as the war turned against Germany.

    I learned a great deal about Dr Goebbels and his personal and professional life. I also learned just what a monster that he and the entire Nazi regime was. I can't help but wonder if both he and Hitler had ended up with their life desires, Joseph as a writer and Adolf as an artist if the chain of event would have been different.

    A very interesting read. By the end I still did not think I truly knew Goebbels' full life and personality but as a glimpse at specific parts, especially his mid-1920s diary entries you do get some sense of his being. What seemed to be missing was how he rose to the very very top but if you are looking for a book which does provide some insight then this is certainly good for that as a starter.

    Fascinating bookThis book is an excellent biography of Joseph Goebbels. It is so well written, so well documented with personal accounts of Goebbel associates from different aspects and times of his life. A fascinating analysis and study of Hitler's genius and obsessed Propaganda Minister. I highly recommend this book.

    I have read up to 1933. Goebbels is a character in my novel-in-progress, reaching out to bring Berthold Becker, my main German fictional character, into the Nazi orbit. This book includes many useful glimpses of Goebbels' thinking. LEW ... http://lewweinsteinauthorblog.com/I will read more later, as my writing progresses.

    A good look inside the sorry history of the Third Reich, with many quotes from the diaries and letters of Jospeh Goebbels. The edition I read used the same font for the quotations and the author's text, making it sometimes difficult to remember who was speaking. (Like trying to follow a long verbal exchange between two characters in a novel.)

    La mejor biografía que existe de Goebbels, fantástico trabajo de Roger Manvell el cual a través de entrevistas y el diario que dejó escrito joseph Goebbels, nos enseña al jerarca Nazi más intelectual y fanatatico lunático que existió.

    Wish there could have been more diary entries to support what the author was saying but overall a good read about a very complex man who craved power to overcome his physical deformity

    Well researched. Translation is poor in places. I wanted some insight into this person and the book delivered it.

    Very academic but fascinating. Not a lot of good biographies about Goebbels available and this one fills that void.

    It was fascinating to read Goebbels words and to gain insight into the mind of this interesting historical figure. Overall a good read.
