Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Reich
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A fast-paced narrative that discovers a surprising perspective on World War II: Nazi Germany’s all-consuming reliance on drugs

The Nazi regime preached an ideology of physical, mental, and moral purity. But as Norman Ohler reveals in this gripping new history, the Third Reich was saturated with drugs. On the eve of World War II, Germany was a pharmaceutical powerhouse, and companies such as Merck and Bayer cooked up cocaine, opiates, and, most of all, methamphetamines, to be consumed by everyone from factory workers to housewives to millions of German soldiers. In fact, troops regularly took rations of a form of crystal meth—the elevated energy and feelings of invincibility associated with the high even help to explain certain German military victories. 
 
Drugs seeped all the way up to the Nazi high command and, especially, to Hitler himself. Over the course of the war, Hitler became increasingly dependent on injections of a cocktail of drugs—including a form of heroin—administered by his personal doctor. While drugs alone cannot explain the Nazis’ toxic racial theories or the events of World War II, Ohler’s investigation makes an overwhelming case that, if drugs are not taken into account, our understanding of the Third Reich is fundamentally incomplete. 
 
Carefully researched and rivetingly readable, Blitzed throws surprising light on a history that, until now, has remained in the shadows.

Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany
GUARDIAN BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2016 'The most brilliant and fascinating book I have read in my entire life' Dan Snow 'Blitzed is making me rethink everything I've ever seen and read about WWII... terrific!' Douglas Coupland 'A huge contribution... remarkable' Antony Beevor, BBC RADIO 4 'Extremely interesting ... a serious piece of scholarship, very well researched' Ian Kershaw The sensational German bestseller on the overwhelming role of drug-taking in the Third Reich, from Hitler to housewives. The Nazis presented themselves as warriors against moral degeneracy. Yet, as Norman Ohler's gripping bestseller reveals, the entire Third Reich was permeated with drugs: cocaine, heroin, morphine and, most of all, methamphetamines, or crystal meth, used by everyone from factory workers to housewives, and crucial to troops' resilience - even partly explaining German victory in 1940. The promiscuous use of drugs at the very highest levels also impaired and confused decision-making, with Hitler and his entourage taking refuge in potentially lethal cocktails of stimulants administered by the physician Dr Morell as the war turned against Germany. While drugs cannot on their own explain the events of the Second World War or its outcome, Ohler shows, they change our understanding of it. Blitzed forms a crucial missing piece of the story.

High Hitler
Una conversación casual con un amigo DJ, en la que este mencionó que los nazis vivían drogados, fue el detonante de la investigación más importante emprendida hasta ahora por el periodista alemán Norman Ohler. Para corroborar la veracidad de este dato, el autor se metió de cabeza en los archivos federales de Alemania y Estados Unidos durante cinco años. Sus hallazgos desvelan una parte de la historia del nazismo. Por un lado ahonda en lo que era un secreto a voces: la drogadicción de Adolfo Hitler. Su médico personal, Theodor Morell, lo mantenía activo con 74 productos diferentes, que incluían desde la inyección de esteroides hasta un producto farmacéutico similar a la heroína. Por otro revela que los soldados alemanes que participaron en las campañas relámpago de Polonia y Francia recibieron generosas dosis de una metanfetamina, patentada en 1937, que los mantenía despiertos durante un par de días. Las drogas decidieron el curso inicial de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Voices and Visions
This remarkable collection of prose and poetry is the outcome of a writing competition on the topic of Women in Pakistan, organized by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Goethe-Institut, and Oxford University Press in 2007 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Pakistan’s independence, the 50th anniversary of the Goethe-Institut in Pakistan, and the 90th anniversary of the birth of Heinrich Böll.The fact that over 600 entries were received, posing a challenge for the highly distinguished jury to select only twenty, is a positive reflection of the innate talent and creativity of our younger generation and their awareness of social and cultural issues. Oxford University Press, Pakistan in publishing this anthology, has given a voice to the young writers expressing their thoughts on a topic of vital social importance.

El gran delirio: Hitler, drogas y el III Reich (Spanish Edition)

Este es un libro fundamental para conocer mejor a Hitler, por un lado; pero también para entender los éxitos militares del nazismo. Como ha dicho el gran historiador Hans Mommsen: «Norman Ohler se ocupa de una dimensión hasta ahora insuficientemente conocida del régimen nazi: la importancia del uso creciente de drogas en la sociedad nacionalsocialista». Basándose en fuentes hasta ahora no utilizadas, Ohler no sólo profundiza en la drogadicción de Adolf Hitler, a quien su médico personal mantenía activo dándole hasta 74 estimulantes distintos, sino en la difusión del uso de metanfetamina entre la población alemana, y nos descubre que se administraron millones de dosis a las tropas que habían de resistir los tremendos esfuerzos que requería la realización de las campañas de la blitzkrieg.
