This issue, we’re giving away three copies of Nazis and Nobles: the history of a misalliance, courtesy of Oxford University Press.
In the many histories of the Third Reich, surprisingly little has been said about the fateful role of the German nobility in the Nazis’ rise to power. Nazis and Nobles fills this gap. As Stephan Malinowski shows, the nobility was too weak to prevent the 1918 German Revolution, but strong enough to be active in the struggle against the Weimar Republic. Then they were prominent, too, in the July 1944 bomb plot against Hitler.
In this skilful portrait of a doomed aristocratic world, Malinowski gives us the in-depth story of the German nobility’s social decline and political radicalisation in the inter-war years.
This issue, three lucky winners will each receive a copy of Nazis and Nobles. For more information about the book’s publisher, visit the website of Oxford University Press at https://global.oup.com.
