Hitler and Stalin: The Tyrants and the Second World War

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Laurence Rees

Narrated By: John Sackville

Date: February 2021

Duration: 18 hours 17 minutes

Summary:

An award-winning historian plumbs the depths of Hitler and Stalin's vicious regimes, and shows the extent to which they brutalized the world around them.
Two 20th century tyrants stand apart from all the rest in terms of their ruthlessness and the degree to which they changed the world around them. Briefly allies during World War II, Adolph Hitler and Josef Stalin then tried to exterminate each other in sweeping campaigns unlike anything the modern world had ever seen, affecting soldiers and civilians alike. Millions of miles of Eastern Europe were ruined in their fight to the death, millions of lives sacrificed.
Laurence Rees has met more people who had direct experience of working for Hitler and Stalin than any other historian. Using their evidence he has pieced together a compelling comparative portrait of evil, in which idealism is polluted by bloody pragmatism, and human suffering is used casually as a political tool. It's a jaw-dropping description of two regimes stripped of moral anchors and doomed to destroy each other, and those caught up in the vicious magnetism of their leadership.

Genres:

  • Comer P.

    A fresh look at an old topic; a compelling comparative look at two of history's greatest monsters. Very well-paced and expertly written. Also, the author reminds of the malleable nature of human nature, and how, under certain circumstances, such men could rise again.
