Blitzed

release date: Oct 06, 2016
Blitzed
The sensational German bestseller on the overwhelming role of drug-taking in the Third Reich, from Hitler to housewives. 'Bursting with interesting facts' Vice 'Extremely interesting ... a serious piece of scholarship, very well researched' Ian Kershaw 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.

The Infiltrators
On a lake near Berlin, a young man is out sailing when he glimpses a woman reclining in a passing boat. Their eyes meet - and one of history's greatest conspiracies is born. Harro Schulze-Boysen had already shed blood in the fight against Nazism by the time he and Libertas Haas-Heye began their whirlwind romance. She joined the cause, and soon the lovers were leading a network of antifascists that stretched across Berlin's bohemian underworld. Harro himself infiltrated German intelligence and began funnelling Nazi battle plans to the Allies, including details of Hitler's surprise attack on the Soviet Union. But nothing could prepare Harro and Libertas for the betrayals they'd suffer in this war of secrets - a struggle in which friend could be indistinguishable from foe. Drawing on unpublished diaries, letters and Gestapo files, Ohler tells an unforgettable tale of love, heroism and sacrifice.

High Hitler: Las Drogas en el III Reich

release date: Apr 18, 2017
High Hitler: Las Drogas en el III Reich
Este es un libro fundamental para conocer mejor a Hitler, por un lado; pero tambi�n para entender los �xitos militares del nazismo. Como ha dicho el gran historiador Hans Mommsen: �Norman Ohler se ocupa de una dimensi�n hasta ahora insuficientemente conocida del r�gimen nazi: la importancia del uso creciente de drogas en la sociedad nacionalsocialista�. Bas�ndose en fuentes hasta ahora no utilizadas, Ohler no s�lo profundiza en la drogadicci�n de Adolf Hitler, a quien su m�dico personal manten�a activo d�ndole hasta 74 estimulantes distintos, sino en la difusi�n del uso de metanfetamina entre la poblaci�n alemana, y nos descubre que se administraron millones de dosis a las tropas que hab�an de resistir los tremendos esfuerzos que requer�a la realizaci�n de las campa�as de la blitzkrieg. El abuso excesivo de las drogas por parte de Hitler.
