Summary "Hitler's empire constituted the largest, most brutal and most ambitious reshaping of the continent ever attempted in Europe's history. Liberalism and democracy were swept aside, as Germany aimed to turn itself into the most powerful state on the continent and to compel everyone else to recognize its mastery. Europe's future was to lie in a new racial order based on the uprooting, resettlement and extermination of millions of people. Moral norms were abandoned as mass murder fused with modern managerialism, ambition and colossal incompetence in a lethal ideological cocktail." "Hitler's Empire charts the landscape of the Nazi imperial imagination - from those economists who dreamed of turning Europe into a huge market for German business, to Hitler's own plans for new trans-continental motorways passing over the ethnically cleansed Russian steppe, and earnest in-house SS discussions of political theory, dictatorship and the rule of law. Above all, this chilling account shows what happened as such ideas collided with reality." "This trauma scars Europe to the present day and entirely altered its position in the world. Hitler's Empire offers a new, sweeping interpretation of this experience as a whole, and links it to the chaotic, evolving ideas of domination that underpinned Nazi rule - a rule that was meant to last for centuries. This was a Europe that became for immense numbers of its inhabitants a scarcely comprehensible nightmare, and one whose realization we have only been spared by German defeat."--BOOK JACKET.
