Nazi German specialty books
Nazi recipe book
Third Reich bird book
A good deal of the Third Reich German material on this website finds a home in the collections of libraries, foundations and museums around the world where it is conserved for the use of scholars, authors, researchers and others seeking documentation that sheds real light on things and events that are now obscure at best.

Enormous war-years propaganda, followed by subsequent decades of very carelessly assembled “docu-dramas” on TV and in the movies have forever altered the concept of life in Third Reich Germany for average people in the 21st century. Few today would believe for example, that in the Grossdeutschland of 1939 with 90+ million people, there were only four million who joined the Nazi Party, or that the entire Reichsautobahn system was built for a top speed of just 66 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour).

Today there are many respectful students of history who look back across a huge void of nonsense, hysteria and deception for objective historical information about living conditions in Third Reich Germany. On this USMBOOKS web page we offer items of little or no military or political significance that do provide real insights in the lives of ordinary Germans during the Third Reich.
