- Drugs in Nazi Germany
- By: Norman Ohler, Shaun Whiteside - translator
- Narrated by: Jonathan Keeble
- Length: 7 hrs and 46 mins
The Nazis presented themselves as warriors against moral degeneracy. Yet, as Norman Ohler's gripping best seller reveals, the entire Third Reich was permeated with drugs: cocaine, heroin, morphine and, most of all, methamphetamines, or crystal meth, used by everyone from factory workers to housewives, and crucial to troops; resilience - even partly explaining German victory in 1940.

This is a facinating book, brilliantly written and narrated, highly recommend it! truth truly is stranger than fiction.
