"goes a long way to explaining how the “glittering surface of the Third Reich” played such a heady part in a deadly mix."

Culture in the Third Reich explores the multiple ways in which popular diversions – from magazines to concerts and cinema to beauty parades – helped power German fascism. Diaries and letters bring texture to a chronological narrative... No single account can ever explain entirely why Germany adopted Hitler as fervently and disastrously as it did.
