Summary Overview: As a leader of the twentieth century's most evil regimes, Joseph Goebbel's legacy is his work constructing the mythic image of Hitler during his rise to power and his catastrophic rule of Germany. In Doctor Goebbels, Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel reveal the man behind the Nazi propaganda machine, beginning with his idyllic childhood in Germany and ending in a dramatic death by suicide. Part biography and part horror, Manvell and Fraenkel delve deep into the mystery shrouding one of Hitler's most evil henchman. Using first-hand accounts from the Nuremberg Trials; by Goebbel's sister Maria; and from the fiance of his youth, Else, Goebbel's carefully crafted character is ripped apart to reveal a boy determined to overcome youthful disabilities and prove, above all, his devotion and dedication to his country. Doctor Goebbels is a landmark work of World War II history and delivers the kind of details that only true scholarship can provide. Written with flair and polished with care, this account is sure to leave readers shocked and surprised at the life of the Fuhrer's "Minister of Hate."
