New York Times Bestseller “[A] fascinating, engrossing, often dark history of drug use in the Third Reich.” — Washington Post The Nazi regime preached an ideology of physical, mental, and moral purity. Yet as Norman Ohler reveals in this gripping new history, the Third Reich was saturated with drugs: cocaine, opiates, and, most of all, methamphetamines, which were consumed by everyone from factory workers to housewives to German soldiers. In fact, troops were encouraged, and in some cases ordered, to take rations of a form of crystal meth—the elevated energy and feelings of invincibility associated with the high even help to account for the breakneck invasion that sealed the fall of France in 1940, as well as other German military victories. Hitler himself became increasingly dependent on injections of a cocktail of drugs—ultimately including Eukodal, a cousin of heroin—administered by his personal doctor. Thoroughly researched and rivetingly readable, Blitzed throws light on a history that, until now, has remained in the shadows. “Delightfully nuts.” — The New Yorker NORMAN OHLER is an award-winning German novelist, screenwriter, and journalist. He is the author of the novels Die Quotenmaschine (the world’s first hypertext novel), Mitte, and Stadt des Goldes (translated into English as Ponte City). He was cowriter of the script for Wim Wenders’s film Palermo Shooting. He lives in Berlin.

Die Studie untersucht Mentalität und Führungskultur des amerikanischen Offizierskorps. Jonathan Zimmerli zeigt, wie der Transfer ziviler Managementmethoden in die US-Army maßgeblich die Mentalität des Offizierskorps im Zweiten Weltkrieg prägte. Anhand der Kämpfe um Monte Cassino 1943/44 und im Hürtgenwald 1944/45 kann der Autor unter anderem die enge Überwachung untergebener Kommandeure nachweisen. Die daraus resultierende Drucksituation und die latente Angst vor einer Kommandoenthebung beeinflussten massiv das taktische Vorgehen auf der Divisions- und Regimentsebene – selbst noch in Korea und Vietnam.

Vor 75 Jahren, am 1. September 1939, begann der Zweite Weltkrieg Der Zweite Weltkrieg war der brutalste und folgenschwerste kriegerische Konflikt der Geschichte – mit einem bis dahin ungekannten Maß an Waffengewalt und millionenfachem Sterben bis hin zum Völkermord. Antony Beevor, angesehener britischer Historiker, entwirft ein globales Panorama, das die großen Zusammenhänge dieses Krieges ebenso transparent macht wie die herrschenden politisch-ideologischen Kräfte, das Ursachen und Folgen umfassend und in bisher einmaliger Prägnanz verdeutlicht. Er folgt von Norden nach Süden und von Osten nach Westen jenen Männern, die die Welt in die größte Schlacht der Menschheitsgeschichte getrieben haben. Und er verliert dabei nie jene aus den Augen, für die dieser monströse Krieg unermessliches Leid bedeutete. Auf der Basis aktueller Forschung, bestens recherchiert, empathisch erzählt, hat Beevor das Buch zum prägendsten Ereignis des 20. Jahrhunderts geschrieben.

In the kingdom(s) of the West, something is rotten. Collectively, the countries of NATO are responsible for almost two thirds of global military spending. In terms of military technology, particularly electronics, communications and logistics, they have left the rest so far behind that it is no contest. Yet ever since the Korean War ended in 1953, almost every time they went abroad and fought non-Westerners they were defeated and had to withdraw. As happened, to cite but two recent cases, in Iraq and Afghanistan; and as may yet happen if and when Islamic terrorism spreads into Europe, as it is quite likely to do. What went wrong? How did the ferocious soldiers who, between 1492 and 1914, brought practically the entire world under their sway, become pussycats? The present study, unique of its kind, seeks to answer these questions. Chapter I, "Subduing the Young," focuses on the way Western people raise their scanty offspring. Infantilizing them, depriving them of any kind of independence, and, in the words of a recent best-seller, turning them into "excellent sheep." Chapter II, "Defanging the Troops," shows how the same is happening in the military. Chapter III, "The War on Men," examines the way in which the forces are being feminized affects, indeed infects, their fighting power. Chapter IV, "Constructing PTSD," looks at the way returning soldiers are almost obliged to develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Finally, chapter V outlines the emergence of modern societies which, exalting rights and forgetting about duty, have come very close to delegitimizing war itself. The book is about 73,000 words long. It is written in jargon-less language laymen can understand. It is also thoroughly documented. Readership should include anybody with an interest in national security, and then some.

Dieser Band geht auf eine Tagung des Militargeschichtlichen Forschungsamtes zuruck. Uber 30 ausgewiesene Fachleute aus dem In- und Ausland berichten uber neuere Perspektiven der Militargeschichtsschreibung. Sie analysieren die Entwicklung des Faches nach 1945 und gehen anhand der Leitthemen "Raum," "Gewalt" und "Reprasentation" den Ursachen, den Ertragen und den Chancen dieser boomenden Teildisziplin der Geschichtswissenschaft nach. Sie geben Hinweise darauf, wie die militargeschichtliche Grundlagenforschung der historischen Bildung in den Streitkraften sowie der Traditionsstiftung nutzbar gemacht werden kann."

Volume IX/I of this series focuses on how the war affected individuals - from soldiers to slave labourers. After examining the Party's role in moulding public attitudes and how German society related to the Holocaust, it looks at the social structure of military units, ideological indoctrination of the troops, and resistance to the regime.
