HITLER'S SCIENTISTS is a fascinating examination of how Nazism interacted with science in a myriad of contexts. The author discusses everything--from the infamous experiments conducted in the concentration camps to the scientific metaphors that shaped public discourse under Hitler's regime. The work concludes with an extended discussion of scientific ethics thenand now. Simon Prebble's narration is superb. His tone is serious throughout, as befits the topic, but he also manages to sound deeply compassionate (for scientists and subjects) and incredulous (at Nazism's deep but deadly stupidities). Prebble delivers a range of foreign and scientific terms crisply, sounding at home with all of them. Cornwell quotes from many documents, and Prebble distinguishes among all readily.
