New in April / May 2014:

In May, 2014 we have updated our site that is dedicated solely to the study of Weimar and Nazi Germany. Each month will see a specialist topic: May's is The Economy in the Third Reich.

Posts on this topic will be appearing every few days - so check back for the latest content.

Items being covered this week are:

An overview of the Economy 1933-39. The Reich's War Economy. A look at the role of Schacht, Goering, Todt, Robert Ley and Albert Speer in the economics of the Third Reich.
