Review

A lovely book considering the obvious topic. Fascinating for anyone interesting in collecting anything about Nazi Propaganda techniques and holds some beautiful images of excellent quality. I highly recommend it. --By B. Presland

Having searched for some time after good examples of German propaganda aimed at Allied forces fighting at Cassino (particularly the Polish forces), this book promised much. And it delivered. These fascinating examples are reproduced clearly, in full colour and at 'life size', each has also been translated into English. If you're expecting a hefty tome packed with lengthy discourse, then you might be disappointed. As its title suggests, this book is more of a snapshot, and certainly one you'll look at again and again. --By WRW --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

I went to Northwestern University as a graduate student in 1971 expecting to do research on John Calvin's rhetoric, an interest I'd developed as an undergraduate at the Calvin College. I quickly discovered that to do research on Calvin, I needed to know French and Latin. I knew German. Professor Robert D. Brooks, however, was looking for graduate students interested in propaganda, and I was the only one who knew enough German to be dangerous. He persuaded me to take up the subject, which has kept me occupied ever since.

After completing my Ph.D., I taught at Southern Illinois University from 1975-1985 and Calvin College from 1985-2014. I retired from Calvin College in 2014.

With a few exceptions, my publications are on Nazi and East German political propaganda. A full list is available here:

Besides my books on the area, I maintain the German Propaganda Archive, a large and growing collection of translations and images from the Nazi and East German periods. It's worth a visit:

http://research.calvin.edu/german-propaganda-archive/

My two forthcoming essays are on Nazi uses of the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" and a lengthy essay on the rhetorical duel between Franklin Roosevelt and Adolf Hitler between 1937 and 1939.
