By A Customer on July 20, 1997
Format: Paperback
The author analyzes Third Reich public opinion, politics, and
propaganda to challenge some widely-held beliefs
about the role and effectiveness of propaganda in
reinforcing consensus the among the German people.

Viewing propaganda in the light of the total
takeover of the media, the omnipresent atmosphere
of terror, and the progressive madness of Nazi
ideology, Welch inter alia finds that the support of the
Nazis and the war was more apparent than real, and that
Goebbels' campaigns became less effective as the war
wore on.

Very readable; essential for students of the
Third Reich, and the role of propaganda in the
totalitarian state.

Format: Paperback
Welch, in a work that has been revised several times, has produced one of the best works on Nazi propaganda, its effectiveness, and how it was utilized. I felt the best aspect of the book was at the beginning as Welch described how propaganda was utilized by Joseph Goebbels and the Nazis in the late 1920s and early 1930s as they sought to gain power. Once they did gain control of the government, Welch has some really interesting chapters on Nazi propaganda in art, literature, and especially newspapers and the movies. I found these chapters to be fascinating and very well written. Welch also does a really good job of explaining how other historians have explained Nazi propaganda and its effectiveness and how his findings contrast. The only negative about the book is I felt it lost steam a bit when describing the war years, with the possible exception of Welch's discussion of Goebbels' attempts at mobilizing the German citizenry behind a "total war." All in all, I think this is probably one of the best works on Nazi propaganda and is required reading for anyone interested in Nazi Germany. I should note that the book is very well written and is quite readable.

Expected more for the price:
More pictures
More propaganda examples
Creative forces behind then

Instead there's a lot of ww ii history, inside politics and hierarchy of the propaganda branch.
