Teaser Tuesday - 13th Decemeber



Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
Since one in three Nazi voters were defectors from the conservative camp, it is important to comprehend it. The German National People's Party or DNVP was an unstable coalition of three pre-war parties, with an admixture from the völkisch fringe that sough to make it monomaniacally antisemitic.
From Michael Burleigh's The Third Reich - A New History - a comment from the Daily Telegraph review on the back says:
Burleigh has recreated the mental world in which it became unthinkable not to do the unthinkable, and the depraved became conventional.
So I'm reading with interest - though the first 100 pages (there are 800! of them), on the early Weimar Republic, is pretty heavy going!

I hope you are enjoying the book. It sounds like a very heavy read. My teasers are from Ties to the Blood Moon by Robin F. Waldrop and Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews. Happy reading!
