Go to source for German Economics/Armament economics

Post by wafflecakes » 06 Jul 2016 13:51

Hi All,

Just wondering if people could recommend a good book/s that offer a detailed analysis of Germany's re-armament, war time production and the economics involved to make all this possible? I've seen posts in this thread where people list numbers relevant to this - but no references. The more detailed the better.

Thanks.

While not without its gaps, a good starting point is the Bundeswehr's official history of WW2:

Do the English-language versions have indexes? Incredible as it may seem for what purports to be THE seminal, semi-official publication on Germany in WWII, the German versions do not.

Interesting publishing order. Thankfully have found copies of all the ones published so far, bar one I think. Time to start saving...

Volumes V/I and V/II are heavy into the economics of the Third Reich.
