As we near the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the Third Reich, its repressive regime and the catastrophic war it spawned continue to fascinate and horrify the public's imagination. Interrogations: The Nazi Elite in Allied Hands, 1945 fills a gap in the history of the Second World War, allowing us for the first time to witness the initial interrogations of the German high command in the summer of 1945 by the American, British, and Russian allies. It was in these crucial early interviews that the Allies first learned the true nature of the Third Reich and discovered the dimensions of the Nazis' Final Solution.

Acclaimed British historian Richard Overy makes brilliant use of the interrogation transcripts to re-create a picture of Germany in its lowest hour, with snapshot portraits of Goring, Speer, von Ribbentrop, and Hess in their own words.

Through Interrogations, the reader comes face-to-face with a regime in its death throes and with a world struggling to understand what had really been perpetrated within the gigantic fortress of Hitler's reich.
