A rogues gallery of social misfits formed the Nazis' inner circle. They hated and conspired against one another but were held together by their admiration for the F hrer, and step by step dragged the nation towards the abyss. While demanding that the German people made sacrifices for a war few believed could be won, the Nazi leaders led lives of incredible debauchery, privilege and power. Drawing on a wide range of sources, author Paul Roland unravels the web of diplomacy, deceit and double-dealing spun by Hitler to ensure the war he had always wanted.
