The Third Reich in 100 Objects

Roger Moorhouse

Published by Greenhill Press, 2017

“The Third Reich in 100 Objects” takes a fascinating and novel approach to the history of Nazi Germany, approaching the subject by examining some of the items – from buildings to badges – that the regime created, invented, awarded, used or otherwise left behind.

Encompassing social, military and political history, as well as propaganda, technology and popular culture, this is much more than a picture book. It is, I suggest, something much more profound than that. By combining a tight focus with a wide angle view; the familiar with the obscure, this book imparts a more rounded, nuanced, and comprehensive understanding of the history of the Third Reich than that which is available from the conventional histories of the period.

It is a new history of Nazi Germany told through the objects that defined it.

"A marvellous book. An eye-opener. Highly recommended reading" (Professor Thomas Weber, University of Aberdeen)
