"Tooze has produced the most striking history of German strategy in the Second World War that we possess. This is an extraordinary achievement, and it places Adam Tooze in a very select company of historians indeed ... Tooze has given us a masterpiece which will be read, and admired; and it will stimulate others for a long time to come."
-Nicholas Stargardt, History Today
"It is among Adam Tooze's many virtues, in "The Wages of Destruction: The Making and Breaking of the Nazi Economy," that he can write about such matters with authority, explaining the technicalities of bombers and battleships. Hovering over his chronicle are two extraordinary questions: how Germany managed to last as long as it did before the collapse of 1945 and why, under Hitler, it thought it could achieve supremacy at all."
-Norman Stone, The Wall Street Journal
"Virtually every page of his book contains something new and thought-provoking, making the whole an impressive achievement, in which original research has been combined with critical scrutiny of a vast literature that seems ripe for such a re-examination."
-Michael Burleigh, The Sunday Times (London)
"A magnificent demonstration of the explanatory power of economic history."
-The Times (London)
"Masterful . . . Tooze has added his name to the roll call of top-class scholars of Nazism."
-Financial Times --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Aside from the research that is worth highlighting, this is a finely crafted book in terms of history and economy. I like to qualify this book to people I already recommended it to, as a very solid work on history, drawing on economy to unravell the historical timeline of WWII and Nazism. This is a strong blend between economy and history that gives a dimension that I have never seen before in any pure-history book and Nazis and WWII out there. However, it is important noting that the economy feature, despite being sometimes pushed beyond basics, is never incomprehensible by people who haven't studied economy before. (former economy & finance major student talking). I recommended it to my dad who never studied any economy and never even interested himself in basics of economy, yet he loved this book, because it brought additionnal data on this period of history that he never read about before (despite extensive WWII and Nazi readings).
The content is dense, and it's not something you read lighheadedly, at least I didn't. I personnally see this book as a very good candidate for a follow-up reading after a history-alone book outlining WWII. It provides depth into the economic mechanisms that developped the "Nazi Economy", and that contributed to the rise and fall of the 3rd Reich. The whole book is riddled with economy in the middle of historical events, and I repeat myself, but this is tremendously done and I would recommend it to anybody being interested in this period of History.
