The most comprehensive and authoritative series into Nazism concludes with this final volume, featuring information culled from both a variety of published and unpublished sources, including government and Nazi Party files, newspapers, radio broadcasts, memoirs, letters, and diaries. Comprised of detailed information on virtually every aspect of Germany during the war, it is perhaps the most substantial study of the nation’s war experience available.

Editorial Reviews

"... triumphant finale to a remarkable publishing enterprise which began life almost a quarter of a century ago ... [and] required reading for anyone in the Anglophone world with an academic interest in Nazism. The immense value of the current, and final, volume in the series lies not so much in the continuing tradition of clearly written text and imaginatively chosen documents, though these virtues survive, as in the fact that much of the history of the home front is still relatively virgin territory. The documentary thread running through the text has to tell a story which cannot easily be discovered from any other source. ... None of the entries is superfluous; each tells a part of the wider story, which is unobtrusively woven around the documents by a deft editorial hand. This is no ordinary document collection." --Times Literary Supplement
