The Third Reich in 100 Objects written by Roger Moorhouse and published Pen and Sword Books Hardback – £25.00 – 253 Pages.

This book has been written by a leading historian of his subject, and this comes across in the book which is a fantastic read. I’ve read these types of books before such as 100 Objects from the First Blitz, and the Second World War etc. They are always good because they are written by people with authority of the time. What makes them so good is the thorough history and detail behind each object, and yet we know most of the objects but the background behind each one is so good. I mean we have every iconic item from the time from, tanks to planes, and uniforms to Nazi badges to gloves and ration cards. I would certainly recommend this to others especially if you were a student wanting to learn about Germany in WW2, as this book is so comprehensive.

The style of Moorhouse’s writing is very clear, informative and coherent, the pictures of each of the items are clear and classy there is no dull or grainy pictures of film etc, it’s just a very well published book. I could keep praising this book because it is so good, but I better stop. This gets a definite 5 star rating from this reviewer for sure.

Hello, I have been studying all aspects of history for about 25 years. I have a BA History from the University of Bedfordshire. My historical areas of interest are anything really, but I specialise in 19th - 20th century Britain, America and Ireland. I am also strongly aligned with most military history, really enjoying WW2 and the US Civil War. Chuck in the king or queen and Bob's your uncle.
