Overview

Even today, the Third Reich--the regime that instigated the most destructive war in modern history--evokes powerful images of fascination and horror. Yet how were the lives of the ordinary German people of the 1930s and '40s affected by the politics of Hitler and his followers? Looking beyond the catalog of events, this intriguing book reveals that daily German life involved a complex mixture of bribery and terror; of fear and concessions; of barbarism and appeals to conventional moral values employed by the Nazis to maintain their grip on society. Eight leading historians present essays that shed fresh light on topics as familiar as the role of political violence in Nazi seizure of power and the German view of Hitler himself. It also focuses on lesser-known aspects of life in the Third Reich, such as village life, the treatment of "social outcasts," and the Germans' own retrospective view of this period of their history.

    more from this reviewer

    This is an older book but recommended.

    When I first saw this book I imagine I was thinking more of a ham and eggs approach. I wanted to know what everyday Germans did. That is to say, what did they eat for breakfast and dinner. Did they read or go to the movies. What were their recreational activities? These were the things I wanted to know. And, while Richard Bessel gives us important information, that information is not unlike what students of the Nazi regime have seen before. While a good effort, the title may be a little misleading.
