Overview

Nearly sixty years after the end of World War II the Third Reich continues to fascinate both authors and readers. Nazi propaganda, in particular, has been the topic of countless books, as have the personalities involved in the German propaganda machine. Yet, despite all of the efforts in this regard, one aspect of that propaganda study has remained largely unexamined. It is the regimes use of postal materials as a tool for expressing its propaganda message. In this new, profusely illustrated book, Albert L. Moore offers readers an overview of the images and messages that filled the mailboxes of Hitlers subjects and victims. As official documents of Nazi Germany, the stamps, postcards, and even postmarks used during the time provide the reader with an explicit picture of the types of propaganda messages every German was expected to see and act upon on a daily basis. Moores groundbreaking work helps us to better understand this powerful, yet heretofore unrecognized, weapon in Hitlers propaganda arsenal. This is not merely a book for those interested in stamps or postcards as collectibles, it is a book for those who desire to better understand what it was like to live inside the Third Reich!

    Interesting Niche For Postal Historians

    As a collector of stamps for over 30 years I've come across many Third Reich period postcards. I've always been impressed by the artistry of this regime. Now, here is a book to understand it all and will help anyone understand the subtle propaganda techniques of the insidious regime.

    Fascinating Book for Collectors, Historians

    This book is a great read! Found this book by chance on a Sunday shopping spree. I recommend it for anyone who has an interest in the history of the Third Reich, or European Fascism in general. The vast extent to which the leaders exerted control over the German population is clear with this book. The enormous efforts made in this area by the Nazi leadership is truly remarkable. The Nazis were well ahead of their peers in Spain and Italy when it came to marketing their ideology through a government sanctioned forum-- the German Postal Service. Also an excellent resource for collectors of WW2 militaria who are looking for a niche in an increasingly expensive marketplace.
