DESCRIPTION: This is a timely publication that explains how the Nazi Party came to power and held that power until the Allies defeated Germany and occupied the German homeland. As Europe teeters on an uncertain future, and extreme Parties begin to win elections in an environment that holds many chilling similarities to the Great Depression which helped Hitler to power it is important to understand the nature and oxygen of extreme politics. The main difference today is that the Internet can provide a mass audience instantly, often with little effort on the part of the person or group who wish to broadcast their message. When Hitler was working to achieve power, he had radio, film and newspapers to carry his message. His Party was new, small and presented little to commend itself to the German voters beyond the fact that it was not one of the discredited, tired, old Parties who were blamed by voters for the mess that Germany had got into. Hitler and his propaganda minister Goebbels devised a way of projecting their message through great theatre. Even today one of their inventions continues as the Olympic torch is paraded as they intended. Goebbels planned a series of rallies that presented the Nazis as the saviour of Germany and the heirs to the Teutonic Knights. Grand pageants and rallies were not confined to Nuremburg but the town was to host a series of special rallies with a new town built to accommodate those attending. The National Party Days were great events where Hitler could be filmed and recorded addressing a huge mass of uniformed supporters who faithfully followed every word of his lengthy public addresses. Those Party Members present felt part of an invincible force carrying Germany to greatness. Those watching newsfilm, reading papers or listening to the radio were awed and subdued. An iron control of the media suppressed any potential questions and left the raw Hitler message as the only permitted thought. The author has presented many unique images from his superb postcard selection. There is concise text that explains and offers opinion, but this is primarily a visual presentation with extended captions that paint an evocative picture of a threat that could so easily return.
