National Socialist Leadership and Total War demonstrates that, contrary to widely held current opinion, Germany was organized for and committed to total war to an extent not usually recognized. Dr. Hancock studies the concepts of total war, policies and attitudes of the National Socialist leadership to mobilizing the German economy and society for World War II. The author examines four leaders - Martin Bormann, Secretary to Hitler, Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister, Heinrich Himmler, Reichsfuehrer-SS, and Albert Speer, Minister for Armaments.
