    Hans-Georg von Studnitz witnessed the fall of the Third Reich from within the press department of the Foreign Office in Berlin. Charged with drafting increasingly futile directives, he entrusted his thoughts to this diary, which his secretary locked in a safe each night. It sets a dizzy whirl of society parties against the increasing suffering of ordinary Germans, charts the writer's growing frustration with the imbecilities of his leaders, and offers a rare insight into the death throes of Nazism.
