"Insightful commentary on the tangible relics of the Third Reich . . . Tells the history of the Nazi regime from a fascinating new perspective" (Military History Monthly). Hitler's Third Reich is covered in countless books and films: no conflict of the twentieth century has prompted such interest or such a body of literature. Here, two leading World War II historians offer a new way to look at the subject-through objects that come from this time and place, much like a museum exhibit. The photographs gathered by the authors represent subjects including the methamphetamine known as Pervitin, Hitler's Mercedes, jackboots, concentration camp badges, a 1932 election poster, Wehrmacht mittens, Hitler's grooming kit, the Tiger Tank, fragments of flak, and, of course, the swastika and Mein Kampf, among dozens more-along with informative text that sheds new light on both the objects themselves and the history they represent.
