This is an original FIRST EDITIION example of the rare 9-1/2 x 10-1/4 inch, 96 page German hardcover book FÜNF JAHRE ARBEIT AN DEN STRASSEN ADOLF HITLERS or "Five Years Of Work On The Highways Of Adolf Hitler" as published for Autobahn Chief Engineer Dr.-Ing. Fritz Todt by Volk und Reich Verlag of Berlin, Germany in 1938.
This very heavily illustrated book records the evolution of the world's first freeway system, from concept to reality in the fifth year of its construction - 1938. The text and maps explain the construction standards, traffic density and the route system of the Autobahn (completed, under construction and proposed) while perhaps 125 large full- and half-page photos record every aspect of construction from worker's housing to bridges, gas stations, on- and off ramps, rest stop facilities, etc.
This original Third Reich FIRST EDITION of Fünf Jahre Arbeit an den Strassen Adolf Hitlers is in used condition and comes with its very rare original dust jacket which has been laminated to preserve it. Name of previous owner inside the front cover.
This book was published after the reunification of Austria with Nazi Germany and contains several illustrated pages of freeway plans for Austria, continuing the Munich freeway to Salzburg, Linz and Vienna, the second largest city of Hitler's Greater Germany. Also contains an article about the increase of car traffic to the Nazi Party Days in Nürnberg and plans for freeway exits to the Reichsparteitaggelaende and the need for an increase of gas stations on the freeway. Also contains the first photos of the interior of the new reststop at Chiemsee.
