Hitler's endgame

Richard J. Evans's new book "The Third Reich at War," which covers 1939 through 1945, is the final installment of his critically acclaimed history of Nazi Germany.

Evans, who holds the Regius Professorship of Modern History at the University of Cambridge, began his trilogy when he decided that there was no survey of the Nazi era that he could recommend. Like his previous books, "The Coming of the Third Reich" (2003) and "The Third Reich in Power" (2005), "The Third Reich at War" incorporates a wide range of primary sources, from the personal papers of German generals to the testimony of Holocaust survivors.

Interviewed for the Wall Street Journal's weekend edition, Evans comments on the causes for the rise of Nazi Germany, the reaction of Germans to Allied bombing and, of course, Hitler's endgame.
