Hitler and The Power of Aesthetics by Frederic Spotts. This covers all aspects from painting to architecture. The book argues Hitler was an artist and dictator, simultaneously. The culture of Germany from '33 to '45 was Hitler's vision of what culture should be...In his eyes.

Aftermath
Life in the fallout of the Third Reich, 1945-1955.
Harald Jähner


So what was life like after Stunde Null? The author explores every facet of life in Germany after "Zero Hour". It is an absolutely fascinating piece of social history which confirms some things we know about Germany in the immediate aftermath of the war, but the book also demolishes many myths about that time. Published in German in 2019, the book won first prize at the 2019 Leipzig Book Fair and spent 48 weeks on the best-seller list in Germany. It was published in English in January 2023. It's a fascinating read for anyone interested in what life was like, as well as social attitudes in the immediate aftermath of the war.

I highly recommend.
