War And Economy In The Third Reich
When Hitler came to power in 1933 he had two aims for the economy: a rapid recovery from the depths of the Great Slump and the creation of a vast economic foundation for Germany's renewed bid for world power. These eleven essays explore the tension between Hitler's vision of an armed economy and the reality of German economic and social life. Many of these essays challenge accepted views of the Third Reich. In his introduction Richard Overy relects on the issues the essays raise, and the ways in which the subject is changing.
