An excellent study of Nazi Germany's vision, implementation of their leader's vision, management challenges and the subsequent collapse of the third reich, from the end of WWI to the end of WWII. Very well written and based on detailed research of the key leaders of the Nazi movement. There is little direct comparison with modern political movements, but there are lesson to learn from this history that are relevant to today's turmoil within Europe and to global international relations.
