The Hitler Conspiracies examines the tangled web of conspiracy that permeated political life in the Third Reich. Hitler came to power by promulgating conspiracy theories; in power, his regime was driven by conspiracies; and throughout the history of the Third Reich, Germans conspired to resist and overthrow Nazi rule. David Welch shows that Hitler's enduring conspiratorial legacy remains central to our fascination with the Nazi era. Written by an expert on the Third Reich, this book throws new light on the story of Adolf Hitler's Germany.
