I've been slowly rereading Shirer's Rise and Fall of the Third Reich and a book on the Nuremburg trials. Not exactly easy blogging material.
I will say this. I first read Shirer's book when I was a freshman in high school. If my folks had any questions about my library choices they never said anything. Looking back, fourteen might have been a little young. Especially the chapter about the New Order for the conquered areas of Europe. Once I was done I never looked at my fellow human beings in quite the same way.
