William Lawrence Shirer (February 23, 1904 – December28, 1993) was an American journalist and war correspondent made famous by Berlin Diary: The Journal of a Foreign Correspondent, 1934–1941, a first-hand account of the rise of Nazi Germany and its road to war. Considered the first full record of what was happening in Germany during the rise of the Third Reich, Berlin Diary was an instant success, and would not be the last of his influential observations on the Second World War.

Shirer was a serving military officer during WWII and worked for the famous American radio broadcaster Ed Murrow for CBS. Shirer returned to the European front in 1944 to cover death of Hitler's Germany, the birth of the atomic age, the end of the war, the creation of the UN and the Nuremberg Trials. A combination of Shirer's lucid, honest reporting, along with interviews, diaries, letters, captured notes from German meetings and court reports are brought together in his compelling post-war account, End of a Berlin Diary.

Gripping, thorough and important. Shirer provides insight into the state of the world after war and the tentative steps leaders took towards peace.
