This is a rare, early Third Reich book containing dozens of original period photos in color. This was the first very high quality publishing effort of the Nazi Party in the wake of their election victories early in 1933, and after Adolf Hitler was appointed Germany's 23rd Chancellor.
This huge 9-5/8 x 12-3/8 inch, 150+ page very heavily illustrated hard cover book is an excellent example of Deutschland Erwacht (Germany Awakened) published for the NSDAP in Germany by Cigaretten Bildendienst of Altona-Bahrenfeld in 1934. It comes with its original dust jacket.
The book is the Nazi Party's tribute to itself and consist of a very substantial well-written German text, six full-page illustrations in color and black & white, over 60 color photos pasted in (most 1/2-page size), over 160 black & white photos pasted in, and one huge fold-out photo taken at a Nazi Party rally in Nürnberg that measures 12 inches tall by over 4 FEET long!
The “SA Brown” colored cloth cover is embossed with gold blocking of the title and the profile of a Nazi against an embossed swastika in an oak leaf wreath.
Drawings in the margins of the book were done by SS-Obersturmführer Felix Albrecht.
The book covers every conceivable aspect of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party including major personalities, early meetings, the Beer Hall “Putsch”, electioneering, the Braunes Haus, fighting the Communists, the SA and SS, the Hitler Youth (HJ), BdM, Party Rallies, winning power in Germany, Hitler at the Berghof and at Mad Ludwig's castle Neuschwanstein, etc.
