‘Moorhouse’s meticulous and painstaking research is matched by his narrative verve.' - The Independent.

What happened inside the infamous 'Wolf's Lair', one of Hitler's headquarters?

Who was the Nazi serial killer?

And who was the man who 'started' World War Two?

These are just some of the questions explored in Roger Moorhouse's collection of essays 'The Wolf's Lair: Inside Hitler's Germany'.

Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich continue to fascinate the world. But there are still many stories to be uncovered, and new angles on the conflict to be explored.

In this brilliant collection of articles and essays, Roger Moorhouse examines some of the more obscure aspects of the history of Hitler’s Germany, whilst also using personal stories to expertly illustrate the great themes of World War Two.

In one essay Moorhouse wrestles with the question of how much Berliners knew about the ongoing Holocaust. In another, he investigates the fascinating story of ‘Germania’; the planned rebuilding of Berlin, asking what the plan tells us about Nazi Germany.

Roger Moorhouse is a best-selling historian. A specialist in modern German, he is author of “Killing Hitler” (2006), an account of the many plots on Hitler’s life, and of the critically acclaimed “Berlin at War” (2010), which used first-hand accounts to illuminate the little-told story of the civilian experience of wartime Berlin. He has also been a regular contributor to both the ‘BBC History Magazine’ and ‘History Today’ for over a decade.
