Blitzed

- Drugs in Nazi Germany

af

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Blitzed by Norman Ohler, read by Jonathan Keeble. The sensational German bestseller on the overwhelming role of drug-taking in the Third Reich, from Hitler to housewives. Bursting with interesting facts Vice Extremely interesting ... a serious piece of scholarship, very well researched Ian Kershaw The Nazis presented themselves as warriors against moral degeneracy. Yet, as Norman Ohlers gripping bestseller reveals, the entire Third Reich was permeated with drugs: cocaine, heroin, morphine and, most of all, methamphetamines, or crystal meth, used by everyone from factory workers to housewives, and crucial to troops resilience - even partly explaining German victory in 1940. The promiscuous use of drugs at the very highest levels also impaired and confused decision-making, with Hitler and his entourage taking refuge in potentially lethal cocktails of stimulants administered by the physician Dr Morell as the war turned against Germany. While drugs cannot on their own explain the events of the Second World War or its outcome, Ohler shows, they change our understanding of it. Blitzed forms a crucial missing piece of the story.
