THE MAKING OF A NAZI HERO

by Daniel Siemens

The Murder and Myth of Horst Wessel. On 14th January 1930, the young member of the SA was shot in Berlin. Although the crime was never solved, the murder was most likely committed by a group of communists. Joseph Goebbels, whose attention had already been drawn to Wessel as a possible future Nazi leader, recognized the propaganda potential of 'a young martyr for the Third Reich' as he wrote in his diary on 23 February 1930. Two months later, thousands of people lined the streets for Wessel's funeral parade and Goebbels delivered a eulogy. In the years that followed Horst Wessel became the hero of the Nazi movement. His elaborate memorial quickly became a site of pilgrimage and the 'Horst Wessel Song' became the official anthem of the Nazi party.

SECRET AIRCRAFT DESIGNS OF THE THIRD REICH

by David Myhra

This outstanding book offers a superb collection of photographs of scale models from contributors throughout the world, and digital images by Mario Merino and Andreas Ott of secret German designs. Myhra gives the reader much more than pictures of proposed German aircraft projects, the total number of German projects described being in excess of 400. From Blohm und Voss with over 200 project designs, he examines Wolderman Voight's Me P.1101, Gotha's Go P.60, the Horten brother's Flying Wings and Alexander Lippisch's many projects. Although over 400 proposed aircraft were on the drawing board when the war in Europe ended in May 1945, only a handful had reached the prototype stage.
