Friedrich Reck-Malleczewen, a Prussian aristocrat, began a secret diary in May 1936, which describes how a psychosis enveloped an entire society, enabling Hitler's rise to power, and the Nazi regime. His insider observations are set down with passion, outrage and almost unbearable sadness. This diary begins with the death of the corrupted Spengler ("Decline of the West"), describes personal encounters with Hitler (he considers shooting the Fuhrer) and abruptly stops when the diarist, at the depth of his despair, is arrested by the Gestapo. Reck-Malleczewen was executed by genickshuss (neck-shot) in Dachau on 16 February, 1945.

"'Stunning... It is not often that invective reaches the level of art, and rarer still that hatred assumes a tragic grandeur' - The New York Times; 'I beg you to read this hitterly courageous book... it is, without a doubt, my book of the year. Its light may seem to be cast on what is now ancient history, but it speaks, in thunder, to the present' - Frederick Raphael, The Sunday Times"
