Why read and study books about nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler?
If there is one person in history whose activities changed the world, that person would be the German leader or Fuhrer Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) who led Nazi Germany and its allies into World War II (1939-1945), by any measure, the most devastating war in history.
But why read books about Hitler and Nazi Germany? The implication being that Hitler was so evil and caused so much trouble that there is no point in glorifying him by learning about his life. The answer is Adolf Hitler is someone we recognize, someone whose contributions — for better or for worse — have had a significant effect on our culture and the world and as members of that global community we should know something about the man, the world he lived in, and the events that shaped his thinking.
Now, examine for yourself Hitler's Germany through these captivating (some out of print & hard to find) history books, art books, first hand war stories from Wermacht soldiers, tactical order of battle books, as well as WW2 / WWII military reference books full of Third Reich pictures & nazi war images. Don't let anyone tell you what to think; read, study and come to your own conclusions about the Third Reich, Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler the Leader of the German Volk.

Immelmann "The Eagle of Lille"
by Frantz Immelmann
The story of one of Germany's pioneers in aerial combat . . .
Max Immelmann was born in Dresden, the son of a container factory owner. When World War I started, Immelmann was recalled to active service, transferred to the Luftstreitkafte and was sent for pilot training in November 1914. He was initially stationed in northern France as a reconnaissance aviator. On June 3, 1915 he was shot down by a French pilot but managed to land safely behind German lines. He was decorated with the Iron Cross, Second Class for preserving his aircraft. Later in 1915, he became one of the first German fighter pilots, quickly building an impressive score of victories as he became known as The Eagle of Lille (Der Adler von Lille).
Immelmann was the first pilot to be awarded the Pour le Me'rite, Germany's highest military honor. The medal became colloquially known as the "Blue Max" in the German Air Service in honor of Immelmann. His medal was presented by Kaiser Wilhelm II in January 1916. Oswald Boelcke received his medal at the same ceremony.
Founder of the aerial combat maneuver that still bears his name, Immelmann was credited with 15 victories, his final one coming on 30 March 1916. He will forever be associated with the Fokker Eindecker, Germany's first fighter aircraft, and the first to be armed with a machine gun synchronized to fire forward through the propeller arc. Along with Oswald Boelcke and other pilots, Immelmann was one of the main instigators of the Fokker Scourge which inflicted heavy loses upon British and French aircrews during 1915.
Originally published in 1930 by John Hamilton in London, the book has been reprinted (most recently in the 1990's by Greenhill Books as part of it's Vintage Aviation Library) and each time has been reproduced from the original 1930's version of the book.
This new Casemate edition has been entirely re-originated. Not a word has been changed, but the original (very dated) type and page layout have been reworked, as has been the format in which the book is presented, to give a beautiful new treatment to this classic of aviation literature.
"Max Immelmann was the first super hero air warrior when flying your own airplane was more dangerous than fighting the enemy! This book was first written in National Socialist Germany in 1934 by his brother. It consists of a history and the personal highly detailed letters that Immelmann wrote to his family. His letters are so detailed that in his own words he takes the reader through his combats and victories. His flying maneuver the Immelmann is still taught and used in aerial combat today!" - Michael Kelly, PzG Inc. President
