Richard J. Evans’s trilogy and related 2015 text offers a valuable historical overview of Nazi Germany

Richard J. Evans’s Nazi Germany trilogy along with The Third Reich in History and Memory (2015) is strongly evidence-based, and is presented within a framework that is well-reasoned and well-informed by the available historiography.

My father’s photo album from 1936 Berlin Olympics prompts my reading of Richard J. Evans’s trilogy about Nazi Germany

I became interested in The Water Will Come (2017) after I heard that Miami real estate agents are decrying the talk of disappearing coastlines

At a previous post, I spoke about concerns expressed (as I understand) by Miami, Florida real estate agents, about people talking about receding coastlines.
