Product description


"The Nazi Party and the German Foreign Office" explores a little known aspect of the history of the Third Reich, largely neglected by historians. It relates the struggle between Party loyalists, who assumed that with the assumption of power in 1933, total state control was theirs, and entrenched diplomats in the Foreign Office, who initially viewed Hitler and his followers as representatives of a political party that would soon disappear. Jacobsen and Smith examine the efforts of certain Party members to replace the traditional Foreign Office with a Party creation called the Foreign Section(Auslands-Organisation der NSDAP, or AO). A young, ambitious Nazi named Ernst Wilhelm Bohle led the effort. The picture that emerges reveals a far greater effort by some Nazi Party leaders to realize the original intent to totally make Germany and the Party into one functioning unit dominated by National Socialist philosophy. The subtle resistance by some older and experienced Foreign Office members cannot be construed as a real opposition to Hitler so much as an arrogant desire to continue as an elite element of German government.

Written by two experts in the field and utilizing personal interviews and unpublished material, "The Nazi Party and the German Foreign Office" is a highly important contribution to the field of World War II scholarship.
