    Rise and Fall was a slog to get through, but fascinating nonetheless.

    I wanted to add to the list of nonfiction War / Spy books which I just read and recommend both by Ben Macintyre named 'A Spy Among Friends - Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal' and 'Rogue Heroes: The History of the SAS Britain's Secret Special Forces Unit That Sabotaged the Nazis and Change the Nature of War'

    It is tough to get through so far. I haven't gotten to the war yet, more of the beginnings of the party, which is much dryer than what I hope the rest of the book is. As you said, still fascinating. Hitler was truly a brilliant manipulator of people and situations.
