Numerous Colour & b/w Photograhs / Illustrations 248 pages clean and tight. The forces that Hitler unleashed in 1939 failed to achieve their aim, although they constituted the most formidable war machine the world had ever known. This book describes the impact of those forces and why they failed. Hitler waged war not only with military might but with economic measures, with propaganda, with coercion, with technology and with political skill. But the most deadly aspect of his armoury was his own mesmeric personality and he made the fullest use of that weapon to revitalise the German people and to urge them forward against the enemies of the Reich. Before his ultimate failure, Hitler achieved dramatic successes. Written by a select group of historians, with over 100 illustrations and photographs in color and over 200 in black and white, Hitler's War Machine provides a fascinating account of Germany's strengths and weaknesses. This is an eye-opening contribution to our understanding of the war and a highly readable addition to any bookshelf. .
