Présentation de l'éditeur

Joseph Goebbels, born in 1897, aspired to be an author, obtained a Ph.D from the University of Heidelberg in 1921. He joined the Nazi Party in 1924, After the Nazi seizure of power in 1933, Goebbels' Propaganda Ministry quickly gained and exerted controlling supervision over the news media, arts, and information in Germany. In 1943, Goebbels began to pressure Hitler to introduce measures that would produce "total war", including closing businesses not essential to the war effort, conscripting women into the labor force, and enlisting men in previously exempt occupations into the Wehrmacht. Hitler finally appointed him as Reich Plenipotentiary for Total War on 23 July 1944, whereby Goebbels undertook largely unsuccessful measures to increase the number of people available for armaments production and the Wehrmacht.

As the war drew to a close and Nazi Germany faced defeat, his wife Magda and their children joined him in Berlin. They moved into Hitler’s bunker. Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945. In accordance with Hitler’s will, Goebbels succeeded him as Reichschancellor; he served one day in this post. The following day, Goebbels and his wife committed suicide, after poisoning their six children with cyanide.

Stephen R. Pastore is a novelist, playwright, poet and literary biographer/bibliographer. Born in New York City, he is the author of The Art of Adolf Hitler, The Complete Paintings of Adolf Hitler, Adolf Before He Was Hitler and is the editor of Mein Kampf: A Descriptive Bibliography. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

How could not love a book by Joe Goebbels. It was a real fun romp with just enough horrific violence to make for good laughs. I hope he writes another one real soon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pure creative Genius, 4 octobre 2005

Not only could he play the piano like Beethoven. Dr Goebbels, was a great writer, poet, Philosopher, mystic, and artist. The ending brought tears to my eyes. Goebbels is one of the greatest geniuses of all time, almost as misunderstood as Billy the Kid. This is the best book I have ever read, and I read much more than most avid readers, mostly non fiction books, because I will not read fiction unless it is writing of the highest quality, not the crap most peole like.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting read... 27 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Michael returns home to Germany from the front lines of both Russian and French battle-fields and begins studying at a university where he meets Hertha Holk, whom he describes as "a beautiful woman! Blondish-brown hair, silky soft, in a heavy knot on the back of that wonderful neck...she peers deamily out a window...suddenly, she turns around to me, and I look into a pair of large, grayish-green enigmas." His writing style paints visionary & emotional pictures in the reader's mind; "Hertha Holk: I read the name in her notebook. How much closer just a name brings us. We are no longer strangers even though we have not exchanged a single word."
Throughout the novel, it is Goebbels himself I picture in Michael's place; when he and Hertha exchange their first kiss, as the two talk repeatedly about politics & philosophy...and their powerful love for each other, as he watches a seeming prototype of Hitler speak, when he meets & befriends young Gustav Adolf on an island vacation, as he debates with his friend Ivan Vienurovsky & best friend Richard, when he flies into a rage & destroys a play he's written after Hertha leaves him, and as he toils away in a worker's pit. The last 1/3 of the novel is absent Hertha Holk (a character who's inspiration was Goebbels' real-life true love, Anka Stalherm), and I found myself wishing her return. The only downside of this book is the anti-Semitism in some diary entries, which I'd much rather read in Goebbels' WWII essays. The polemics stick out like sore thumbs perhaps because the book was completed before Goebbels joined the NSDAP and it later saw many revisions to include the Nazi philosophy as well as Hertha Holk's minor emotional turmoil, before actually being picked up by a publisher and mass-produced.
All in all, it's a surprisingly good read (written mostly in a diary form--it is said to be taken largely from Goebbels' own personal diaries of 1919 & 1920, which no longer exist), perhaps because it bears many similarities to Goethe's "The Sorrows of Young Werther," with fairly well developed characters, and an ending that sounds cliched if you're told it before-hand, but pulls at your gut once you've read it for yourself. An excellent addition to any WWII history class, and highly recommended to those interested in what was truly the 'roaring 20s'--the 20s in Germany.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Goebbels' Love Story 30 mai 2015
Par Dave Day - Publié sur Amazon.com

Interesting book by Joesph Goebbels. It has a story line that one would not associate with his later role in the National Socialists.
