Postcards of Hitler's Germany, Vol. 1
A ten-year study of Third Reich era postcards has resulted in a multiple volume series of which this is volume 1, covering the years 1923-1936. Three basic categories of postcards are chronologically covered: official issue, "printed to private order" for special events, and propaganda. These colorful images depict a mini-history of National Socialist Germany from numerous historical events to the complex latticework of German culture and society. The basic cards are not only pictured, but all known variants are also listed or illustrated.
