An account of the economic workings of the Third Reich - and the reasons ordinary Germans supported the Nazi state. This book addresses one of modern history's greatest conundrums: How did Hitler win the allegiance of ordinary Germans? It makes a contribution to our understanding of Nazi aggression, the Holocaust, and the complicity of a people.
