An engaging and novel approach to a familiar history. Pleasingly comprehensive and accessible… highly recommended’ - Iron Cross magazine.
Hitler's Third Reich is still the focus of numerous articles, books and films: no regime of the twentieth century has prompted such a body of literature.
Collated by one of the world's leading historians of Nazi Germany and illustrated throughout, this book is an, compelling and revelatory guide to the Third Reich.
Ranging from documents and postcards to weapons and personal effects, these objects include Pervitin, Hitler's Mercedes, Hitler's grooming kit, the Messerschmitt 262, the Luger pistol, the Tiger Tank, Eva Braun's lipstick case, the underpants of Rudolf Hess, and, of course, the Swastika and Mein Kampf.
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'.Iron Cross Magazine, issue 1 – reviewed by Andy Saunders

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.Author Translator, Olga Nunez

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.Recollections of WWII
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.
