A book that is more than deserving of its bestseller status, Norman Ohler’s ‘Blitzed‘ is an examination of drug addiction in Nazi Germany. The book’s real fascination lies not in its graphic depiction of Hitler’s long-suspected habits, wrought from the medical notes of Dr. Theodor Morell, but in the revelation of what Ohler calls a ‘doping mentality’: the consistent intoxication of the German people through readily-available methamphetamine during the years of WWII. Painstakingly researched, this book certainly might prompt you to re-examine the history of the Third Reich.
