'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.
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

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.
