THE DEATH OF DEMOCRACY Hitler's Rise to Power and the Downfall of the Weimar Republic

by | Read by Steven Crossley

History • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Steven Crossley gives a near-perfect narration of Hett's well-written and researched account of how the German experiment in democracy, the Weimar Republic, came to be replaced by the Nationalist Socialists, the Nazis. What struck this reviewer is that all the parties involved seem to have favored statism--a centrally controlled government. The Weimar Republic really was nothing like what we in the Anglo-American world have experienced as democracy. It was all about the power. Crossley's British accent gives his narration an academic-sounding quality quite fitting for the text. He is clear and precise in pronunciation and enunciation and is suitably expressive throughout.
