In life and in his family suicide, Goebbels was one of Hitler's most loyal accolytes. Though powerful in wartime Germany, Goebbels was a man dogged by insecurities and consumed by his adherence to the Nazi cause. Longerich engages and challenges the careful self-portrait that Goebbels left behind in his diaries, and, as he delves deep into the mind of Hitler's master propagandist, discovers first-hand how the Nazi message was conceived.
