10 Best History Audiobooks. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany by William L. Shirer Narrated by Grover Gardner Audible. Ununited Germany. In its long history, Germany has rarely been united.

For most of the two millennia that Central Europe has been inhabited by German-speaking peoples, such as the Eastern Franks, the area now called Germany was divided into hundreds of states, many quite small, including duchies, principalities, free cities, and ecclesiastical states.

The Reader tells the story of a fraught and complicated personal relationship, and in doing so reveals much bigger historical relationships.German literature is rich in beautifully crafted stories, especially from the eras of Sturm und Drang, Romanticism, and Realism.

Certain German books are an excellent introduction not only to German literature but to German culture and the history of Germany too. Many of the most famous works of literature to emerge from Germany, such as All Quiet on the Western Front, The Never-ending Story.Book of Clouds by Chloe Aridjis.
