Book Review: Defying Hitler by Sebastian Haffner

This is the story of Sebastian Haffner, a man who lived in Germany during Hitler’s rise to power. I loved hearing the story from the perspective of the average German. I can’t imagine living in such tumultuous times, but reading this book gives me a glimpse. The best part about it is the fact that it tries to answer two very important questions: how on earth a regime like the Nazis could rise to power, and how almost the entire nation where corrupted by them. It’s a wonderful story that I would recommend to anyone that is the bit interested in that period. Remember, it’s by understanding the past that we can best keep from repeating it.
