251. Ohler, Norman (2016). Blitzed: Drugs in Nazi Germany (1st ed). London: Allen Lane / Penguin Books. 360 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, as new condition (in as new dustjacket). First edition. The Nazis presented themselves as warriors against moral degeneracy. Yet, as this 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 explain everything, they do change our understanding of it. A crucial missing piece of the story. ISBN: 9780241256992. Our Book No: 17156. $25 AUD.
