    This was one of the first books I read in my self initiated studies of fascism and national socialism, a year or two after reading a biography of the Propaganda Minister I have since forgotten which, possibly Goebbels It was appropriate, since an interest in propaganda and Nazi filmmaking had been the initial interest Looking back, it was also appropriate in the sense that this was among the books published in the first crush of American interest in the liberated documents of the Third Reich after World War Two Publishers looking to sell paperbacks in those days just couldn t put enough swastikas on covers, it seemed, and I remember feeling a need to carefully conceal it as I rode public transit in San Francisco and Portland.Certain aspects of that initial reading also stand out to me I have never forgotten the line, certain developments, which, on the map, appear unfavorable to us, have occurred, as an example of spinning bad news I also recall that Goebbels complained frequently about the German people s unwillingness to implement total war policies even to the point of allowing women...

    The diary of a sick, twisted, cowardly demon.

    very interesting and largely debunks the view that the international media tends to pump into our heads Having read this, allowed me to form a personalized view of this , as it appears extremely intelligent man What ca...

    Mixed feelings about this portion of the Goebbels diaries On the positive side, when there s lots going on in the war, it s VERY interesting and colorful On the negative side, when there s not much going on, it s full of REALLY trivial prattle about his departmental personnel problems On the VERY NEGATIVE side, almost everything from the conquest in the West in the spring of 1940 is MISSING also the period in summer 1940 during the Battle of Britain And I m also not crazy about the editing and annotation lots of obscure s...

    Surprisingly almost stupifyingly dull Difficult to believe that someone so close to, and complicit with, the epicenter of world history s paramount evil could ramble on with all the dramatic effect of a grocery store clerk Enjoy Talk about damning with faint praise but I have the most grudging respect for the fact that Goebbels chose to go down with the sinking ship and commit suicide in tandem with Hitler rather than try to strike a shabby bargain with the allies unlike Goering and Himmler for example The converse argument to that of course is that, in choosing to also murder his si...

    It was interesting to read his thoughts, but he was such a sick little monkey that reading this was sometimes difficult.

  7. Joseph says:

    Labored through the book, waiting to learn something and gain some insights Too many names of low level Nazis The redeemable part of reading this diary were the incidental flashes in Goebbel writing into Hitler s mind There s no question in my min...

    I had great expectations when i picked this one up I thought this shall be my oppurtunity of seeing things from Nazi top chairs As they saw it during those times to say the least, i m bitterly dissapointed Firstly, the diary isn t complete Most of the important events are missing As the enteries have been lost of them I ve been amazed at the lack of information of Goebbel s about certain events t...

  9. Xon says:

    Boring My opinion is he was an ego maniac who wrote this diary with the thought that it would be published because of his stature He kisses ass and I m sure he is holding back about war plans and his master plan He doesn t mention his apparent affairs or anything terribly personal His diary is just ...

    I got it long time ago as a gift and I finished it just recently It was fascinating to read from historical point of viewbut hard to swallow considering who wrote them and the presented ideas were scary.
