How Trench Warfare and Street Fighting Moulded Hitler
Bob Carruthers combines his two previous books, Private Hitler’s War and Hitler’s Demons, into a single, revised volume. Aided by the memoirs of Hitler’s former companion and business partner Reinhold Hanisch, as well as the intimate testimonies of his opponents Moritz Frey and Otto Strasser, Carruthers examines the Führer’s commitment to resolving political problems through decisive acts of violence, a belief he nurtured as a young ideologue in the trenches of France and the beer halls of Bavaria.
The Official Nazi Luftwaffe Magazine: The English Language Editions
Before the declaration of war between Germany and the United States, the official Luftwaffe magazine was published in a translated edition and widely available on American newsstands.

This book reproduces a selection of Der Adler articles from 1940 to 1942, the period of the Luftwaffe's greatest ascendency.
