I recently started reading Cross of Iron by John Mosier. A very detailed and thorough book on the German Army from pre WW1 to WW2. I found something very interesting, that thousands of Jews where serving in the Army and where granted exceptions by the Party. They where protected by their fellow comrades. Many where officers.

Good blog. I need this type of content.The reference should include a brief summary of the work, and why you think other readers would find it useful.

If anybody is interested in the history of everyday life, there is a nice book by Tatyana Timofeeva. "We lived an ordinary life...?" based on interviews with Berliners. It is mostly dedicated to the changes in everyday life in the Third Reich and their perception of these changes. Unfortunately, it wasn't translated, as far as I know...

Another great work is "LTI" by Victor Klemperer. About linguistic changes under Hitler. Klemperer lived in Germany and shares his own experience of dealing with Hitler's regime. It's not strictly academic, but very interesting.
