Overview

The Hitler Youth was not in itself a military formation, but a movement that sought to inculcate Nazi ideology upon German youth. Nevertheless, paramilitary training formed an important part of this education, especially given the Nazi veneration of the soldier as the epitome of Germanic manhood; and even some members of the Bund Deutscher M├Ądel, the Hitler Youth organization for girls, became combatants in the final stages of World War II (1939-1945). This book explores how the preliminary training that German youth underwent in the Hitler Youth prepared them for service in the armed forces, and how Hitler Youth members became directly involved in military service under the pressure of total war.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...does a fine job in all aspects, the art is well done, the detail is fantastic, and the information, regarding a subject that could be seen as so tought as to be difficult, fairly done." -Alex Ness, popthought.com

"...an informative study of the youth arm of the Nazi part." -Military Trader

"The Hitler Youth was not the same as other youth movements during the same period. No other youth movement at that time pushed their wards into front line combat... Dearn's use of photographs in the book is very well done...provides the reader a good introduction to the Hitler Youth and a firm base to support more in-depth study if desired." -Sergeant Gary I H Kett CD MA, Canadian Army Journal (Summer 2006)
