'No one knows more about the Third Reich than Roger Moorhouse. He has chosen fascinating images that expose the poisonous reality of Hitler's Germany’ - Dan Snow

Hitler's Third Reich is still the focus of numerous articles, books and films: no conflict of the twentieth century has prompted such interest or such a body of literature.

Approaching the canon of World War II literature is a challenge for a general reader but the 100 objects approach is a novel and accessible presentation.

This is a compelling, frequently shocking and revelatory guide to the Third Reich that has been collated and presented by two of the world's leading World War II historians.

The photographs gathered by Roger Moorhouse include Pervitin, Hitler's Mercedes, Hitler's grooming kit, the Nuremberg courtroom, the Tiger Tank, fragments of flak, the Iron Cross and, of course, the Swastika and Mein Kampf.

this is a novel book and superbly written. It has numerous iconic items, some infamous ones, some relatively unheard-of items and some that are just exceptional. It is well worth reading and it summaries the history of the period in perhaps the most notable 100 objects from the era.

Dr Stuart C Blank

Moorhouse is an historian with an extraordinary gift for telling detail... Hitler's Third Reich in 100 Objects performs two essential tasks when it comes to remembering Nazi Germany. First, it conveys how a single, 12-year period — as Richard Overy points out in his introduction — "continues to exert a macabre fascination long after its violent demise". At the same time, it decouples beauty from politics, forcing the reader to confront how the former can be dragooned into service by the latter, but need not be.

The style of Moorhouse’s writing is very clear, informative and coherent, the pictures of each of the items are clear and classy there is no dull or grainy pictures of film etc, it’s just a very well published book. I could keep praising this book because it is so good, but I better stop. This gets a definite 5 star rating from this reviewer for sure.

UK Historian

The book is an engaging and novel approach to a familiar history. Pleasingly comprehensive and accessible, it would work just as well as a coffee-table volume or as a study aid for history students. Either way, it is highly recommended and is this issue's 'Editor's Choice'.

History of War, issue 73

What I was more impressed by, apart from the quality of both, images and writing, was the way these disparate objects and the narrative behind them managed to give me a good sense of what life was like at the time, without having to read tonnes and tonnes of pages full of dry information. This book illustrates well the power of images.

The Armourer, May 2018

I heartily commend and praise the author’s refreshing manner of presentation and encourage others to explore other innovative ways to present the same information.

Kunwon Saw - Freelance Reviewer

The style of writing is clear and coherent, the illustrations crisp and of excellent quality, and the book well-rounded and accessible to all. Whether the reader is just interested in this period of history or an academic, it is very highly recommended.

Britain at War, February 2018 – reviewed by Alina Nowobilska

The premise, the research and intent of this book as a different way of looking at the Third Reich, makes this truly an interesting book.

Amazon review, atticusfinch1048

The Third Reich is a continued subject of fascination. Numerous documentaries, of widely varying quality, can be found on television every day; newspaper articles and stories feature stories relating to the Nazis on a weekly basis, and publishers are producing new books on the subject which appear on the shelves of the high street booksellers.

However, most of these do not represent the personal angle of the period that Roger Moorhouse has cast light upon in The Third Reich in 100 Objects. Moorhouse has complied a widely diverse collection of items from Nazi Germany. Each item is pictured, and has a detailed description of its relevance to the German citizen, or indeed the German leadership in some cases.
