Defying Hitler: a memoir – Sebastian Haffner

This is a massively fascinating book as it was written at time when Hitler was still in power and before the onset of World War II. Because of this interesting viewpoint it’s worth a read – but it’s also well-written and engaging, and real. It’s one of those few books written while history itself was happening in a major way. It also helps to go some way to answering how it was all allowed to happen in the first place. I still don’t completely understand it though, and I don’t think I ever will.
