By William Sheridan Allen

(Subject: The Third Reich - General) The experience of a single German town, 1922-1945. The author examines the entire period of the Nazi Revolution within the single locality of Northeim.

Relying upon legal records and interviews with primary sources, he describes the transformation of a sleepy town to a Nazi stronghold. In his analysis, he argues that Hitler rose to power primarily through democratic tactics that incited localized support rather than through violent means. Revised on the basis of newly discovered Nazi documents. (Published: 1984) (Publisher: Franklin Watts) (ISBN: 0531099350) (Pagination: 388pp) (Condition: Good in d/w) UL-XXXXXX

By Philip St. C. Walton-Kerr

AUSCHWITZ AND THE ALLIES

By Martin Gilbert

(Subject: The Third Reich - General) In 1944, Allied reconnaissance pilots, searching out industrial targets in the area, repeatedly photographed Auschwitz.

First-hand reports on the horrors of the death camps came to the West by 1944 in the person of two escaped Auschwitz prisoners. Their testimonies, and those of subsequent escapees, were either ignored or dismissed. This book explains the reasons why.

WERWOLF: THE HISTORY OF THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST GUERILLA MOVEMENT 1944-1946

(Subject: The Third Reich - General) Towards the end of the Second World War, a National Socialist resistance movement, known as the Werwolf, flickered briefly to life in Germany and its borderlands. Dedicated to delaying the advance of the Allies on both fronts, it succeeded in scattered acts of sabotage and violence. By the spring of 1945, it also showed signs of becoming a vengeful Nazi reaction against the German populace itself. 'Collaborators' and 'defeatists' were frequently assassinated, and crude posters warned that certain death would follow any failure to resist the enemy. The author demonstrates that although the group failed to assume a popular character, its influence was still great and its revolutionary sentiments would have grave implications for the future (Published: 1998) (Publisher: Univ. of Toronto Press) (ISBN: 0708314465) (Pagination: 455pp illustrations) (Condition: near fine in d/w) UL-XXXXXX
