Product description

Review

German writer Norman Ohler's astonishing account of methamphetamine addiction in the Third Reich changes what we know about the second world war .. Blitzed looks set to reframe the way certain aspects of the Third Reich will be viewed in the future (Rachel Cooke Guardian)

A huge contribution... remarkable (Antony Beevor BBC RADIO 4)

Blitzed is making me rethink everything I've ever seen and read about WWII. It emotionally and technically makes sense of previously unexplainable aspects of that war. It makes me want to revisit other books on it with the hindsight of knowing these newly exposed truths. It was terrific! (Douglas Coupland)

The picture he paints is both a powerful and an extreme one... gripping reading (Anna Katharina Schaffner Times Literary Supplement)

Remarkable... energetic... retells the history of the war through the prism of the pill... it has an uncanny ability to disturb (Roger Boyes The Times)

Very good and extremely interesting - a serious piece of scholarship very well-researched (Ian Kershaw author of Hitler and To Hell and Back)

The most brilliant and fascinating book I have read in my entire life (Dan Snow)

Norman Ohler has succeeded in a remarkable scoop, by studying in detail the notebooks of Hitler's personal doctor and demonstrating that Hitler was a far worse junkie than we had ever imagined. He has also unearthed the way that the German army did not march on its stomach, but on methamphetamine. The supposedly clean-living Nazis, who accused the Jews of corrupting German youth, were the real pushers. The book, written with delightful irony, is an eye-opener. (Antony Beevor Guardian)

This book transforms the overall picture (Hans Mommsen)

Sensational (Daily Mail)

From the Back Cover

'Astonishing, gripping, convincing ... the untold story of the Third Reich's relationship with drugs, including cocaine, heroin, morphine and, above all, methamphetamines (aka crystal meth) ... changes what we know about the second world war' Rachel Cooke, Guardian

'The most brilliant and fascinating book I have read in my entire life' Dan Snow

'A remarkable scoop, demonstrating that Hitler was a far worse junkie than we had ever imagined ... an eye-opener' Sir Antony Beevor

'Gripping, powerful' Anna Katharina Schaffner, The Times Literary Supplement

'Enthralling' Duncan Fallowell, Spectator

'A serious piece of scholarship' Ian Kershaw
