Editorial Reviews

"This is an interesting volume. In addition to describing the camps, it offers interesting insights to the command relationships in Nazi Germany." -Bolling Smith, The Coast Defense Journal"This volume examines and describes the more than a dozen fortified headquarters built for Nazi dictator Adolph Hitler throughout World War II. It illustrates the text devoted to these sites with a nice variety of custom graphics, photographs, and other art, much of it previously unpublished ... a solid addition to the Fortress series, a worthy claimant to its 100th volume, and an interesting and informative read." -Skirmisher Forum"In addition to drawings and photos of some of the sites, there are also some charts showing the amount of man hours and concrete used on these command sites ... One point of interest is that the author attempts to relate how these sites fit into Hitler's personality." -J.E. Kaufmann, Site O"If you have an interest in Hitler, the Third Reich, command and control facilities, fortresses, or Götterdämmerung architecture, this is an interesting book. Good photographs and illustrations keep one's graphic interest. Recommended." -Frederick Boucher, AeroScale"...provides a fine introduction to Hitler's command fortifications. The result is a specific, in-depth feature perfect for any World War II colelction!" -The Midwest Book Review"...a fascinating look into something that one rarely thinks of when it comes to military history." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (October 2010)
