Summary The author, Hitler's architect and later his armaments minister, was in the dictator's inner circle for almost 12 years. After the war, Speer used the enforced leisure of his 20 prison years as a war criminal to plan and write these memoirs. This is the most revealing document on the Hitler phenonmenon yet written. It takes the reader inside Nazi Germany on four different levels: Hitler's inner circle, National Socialism as a whole, the area of wartime production and the inner struggle of Albert Speer. -TV379
