The Third Reich in 100 Objects: A Material History of Nazi Germany

Published by Greenhill Books on 1st November 2017

Hitler’s Third Reich is still the focus of numerous articles, books and films: no regime of the twentieth century has prompted such interest or such a body of literature. This is an accessible, compelling, sometimes shocking and often revelatory guide to the Third Reich that has been collated and presented by one of the world’s leading historians of Nazi Germany. The photographs gathered by Roger Moorhouse range from documents and postcards to weapons and personal effects. They include Pervitin, Hitler’s Mercedes, Hitler’s grooming kit, the Messerschmitt 262, the Luger pistol, the Tiger Tank, Eva Braun’s lipstick case, the underpants of Rudolf Hess, and, of course, the Swastika and Mein Kampf.
