-"Hitler's Foreign Policy" (1933-1939), by Gerhard L. Weinberg is a very detailed book dealing with all of Hitler's pre World War 2 conquests. Great book!!!

-"Hitler's Political Generals" (The Gauleiters) Volume 1,by David Lyne-Gordon is a good fact check book when looking for bios on Gauleiters during the Third Reich.

-"Hitler's Political Generals" (The Gauleiters including the Reichsleiters) Volume 2, by David Lyne-Gordon is better than volume 1 in that it gives more detail about the specific Gauleiters and covers more Gauleiters than volume1 does. It also provides bios on all the Reichsleiters during the Third Reich.

Georges,
-You have named a lot of good books!!!! I have some of them, but the others I wish I had!!! One of the first NSDAP books I ever purchased was "The Face of the Third Reich" by Joachim Fest. That was the book that got me started on researching the Third Reich, particularly it's Leaders.

Hello,

Just back from Prag, I found very interesting books (in czech)

- PROTEKTORAT Cechy a morava v obrazech by Jan B. Uhlir
799 pages a pictural album dealing with all aspects of the german occupation and collaboration with a lot of documents and photos published in 2008 a must.

- A czech editor published "fac similé" of the Heinrich Hoffmann Albums with all original pictures (text in czech). : Hitler in France, Hitler in Sudetenland, Hitler and the Anschluss...

prices of books are very interesting in CZ !

enjoyable holidays and good bargains !

Georges

Hello,

another standard one :

Der Preussische Staatsrat 1921 1933 Ein biographisches Handbuch by Joachim Lilla Droste Verlag

comments : cover all the NS state councellors (bios) . Interesting because complete senior NS leaders who were not Members of the Reichstag.
Complete very well Statisten in Uniform by the same author (and Andreas "AnDie" Schulz).
