9780300190441: Speer: Hitler's Architect

A new biography of Albert Speer, Adolf Hitler’s chief architect and trusted confidant, reveals the subject’s deeper involvement in Nazi atrocities

In his best-selling autobiography, Albert Speer, Minister of Armaments and chief architect of Nazi Germany, repeatedly insisted he knew nothing of the genocidal crimes of Hitler’s Third Reich. In this revealing new biography, author Martin Kitchen disputes Speer’s lifelong assertions of ignorance and innocence, portraying a far darker figure who was deeply implicated in the appalling crimes committed by the regime he served so well.
 
Kitchen reconstructs Speer’s life with what we now know, including information from valuable new sources that have come to light only in recent years, challenging the portrait presented by earlier biographers and by Speer himself of a cultured technocrat devoted to his country while completely uninvolved in Nazi politics and crimes. The result is the first truly serious accounting of the man, his beliefs, and his actions during one of the darkest epochs in modern history, not only countering Speer’s claims of non-culpability but also disputing the commonly held misconception that it was his unique genius alone that kept the German military armed and fighting long after its defeat was inevitable.

About the Author:

Martin Kitchen is professor emeritus of history at Simon Fraser University and the author of numerous books on European and German history. He lives in British Columbia.

Review:

"A devastating portrait of an empty, narcissistic and compulsively ambitious personality."—Wall Street Journal (Wall Street Journal)

“A 200,000 word charge sheet. Kitchen is steely, dogged and attentive to the small print. He shows Speer no mercy, nailing his every exculpatory ruse and demonstrating time and again how provisional the notion of truth was to him.”—Jonathan Meades, London Review of Books (Jonathan Meades London Review of Books 2016-02-04)

"Kitchen, the author of a dozen works on 20th-century Germany, comprehensively disassembles Speer's alibis and excuses in this new book. His mastery of the revisionist evidence against Speer is complete."—John Fund, National Review Online (John Fund National Review Online)

"Excellent. . . . Kitchen brings to this book an unrelenting appetite for the truth and a piercing style."—Robert Fulford, National Post (Robert Fulford National Post)
