"This book shows that the national British Press generally shared a common revulsion against Nazi barbarities, which were well known. Beyond this common denominator, however, the British Press reacted to Nazi Germany mainly along Left-Right political lines over issues formulated a decade before the Nazi came to power and in many ways having little or nothing to do with Germany itself. Basing himself upon a careful reading of the ten major British daily and Sunday newspapers supplemented with important new material from the archives of The Times, the Manchester Guardian, and several collections of personal papers, Dr Gannon concludes that Hitler and his demands were like a funnel into which British attitudes on every question from armaments to xenophobia were poured: what emerged from the funnel was the single policy of appeasement."--Book Jacket.

Allegedly the only man capable of holding the Führer's intense gaze, Rothay Reynolds was a leading foreign correspondent between the wars and ran the Daily Mail's bureau in Berlin throughout the 1920s and 1930s. The enigmatic former clergyman was one of the first journalists to interview Adolf Hitler, meeting the future Führer days before the Munich Putsch. While the awful realities of the Third Reich were becoming apparent on the ground in Germany, in Britain the Daily Mail continued to support the Nazi regime. Reynolds's time as a foreign correspondent in Nazi Germany provides some startling insights into the muzzling of the international press prior to the Second World War, as journalists walked uneasy tightropes between their employers' politics and their own journalistic integrity. As war approached, the stakes - and the threats from the Gestapo - rose dramatically. Reporting on Hitler reveals the gripping story of Rothay Reynolds and the intrepid foreign correspondents who reported on some of the twentieth century's most momentous events in the face of sinister propaganda, brazen censorship and the threat of expulsion - or worse - if they didn't toe the Nazis' line. It uncovers the bravery of the forgotten heroes from a golden age of British journalism, who risked everything to tell the world the truth.

What was known and understood about the nature of the Nazi dictatorship in Britain prior to war in 1939? How was Nazism viewed by those outside of Germany? The British Press and Nazi Germany considers these questions through the lens of the British press. Until now, studies that centre on British press attitudes to Nazi Germany have concentrated on issues of foreign policy. The focus of this book is quite different. In using material that has largely been neglected, Kylie Galbraith examines what the British press reported about life inside the Nazi dictatorship. In doing so, the book imparts important insights into what was known and understood about the Nazi revolution. And, because the overwhelming proportion of the British public's only means of news was the press, this volume shows what people in Britain could have known about the Nazi dictatorship. It reveals what the British people were being told about the regime, specifically the destruction of Weimar democracy, the ruthless persecution of minorities, the suppression of the churches and the violent factional infighting within Nazism itself. This pathbreaking examination of the British press' coverage of Nazism in the 1930s greatly enhances our knowledge of the fascist regime with which the British Government was attempting to reach agreement at the time.

Ein Zeitzeugnis sondergleichen: So sahen die Briten uns Deutsche 1944 Als sich die britischen Soldaten 1944, noch vor Kriegsende also, auf den Weg nach Deutschland machten, steckte dieses Büchlein in ihren Hosentaschen. Eine Anleitung des britischen Außenministeriums, wie mit uns Deutschen umzugehen sei, ein Attest der britischen Zivilisiertheit und eine Warnung vor einem »merkwürdigen Volk«. Die Soldaten sollten psychologisch geschult werden, um nicht auf die Propagandamittel der Nazis hereinzufallen. Es sollte ihnen aber auch deutlich gemacht werden, dass sie sich allen Deutschen gegenüber immer fair zu verhalten hätten. Sehr konkret und teilweise auch ziemlich skurril wird beleuchtet, was wir gerne essen und trinken, welche Sportarten wir betreiben und wie wir feiern. 400.000 Soldaten haben 1944 diesen Leitfaden erhalten, der ihr Bild von uns Deutschen entscheidend geprägt hat. Uns kann er auch heute noch einen Spiegel vorhalten, und das Bild von uns, das wir in diesem Spiegel sehen, ist manchmal erschreckend, manchmal amüsant und oft unfassbar komisch. Mit einer Vorbemerkung von Helge Malchow und Christian Kracht

The legendary CBS news journalist’s selection of iconic World War II radio broadcasts from countries throughout Europe. William L. Shirer was the first journalist hired by CBS to cover World War II in Europe, and he worked there for over a decade as a news broadcaster. This book compiles two and a half years’ worth of wartime broadcasts from Shirer’s time on the ground during World War II. He was with Nazi forces when Hitler invaded Austria and made it a part of Germany under the Anchluss; he was also the first to report back to the United States on the armistice between France and Nazi forces in June of 1940. His daily roundup of news from Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Rome, and London, which documented Nazi Germany and the conditions of countries under invasion and at war, became famous for its gripping urgency. Shirer brought a sense of immediacy to the war for listeners in the United States and worldwide, and his later books, including the seminal Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, became definitive works on World War II history. This collection of Shirer’s radio broadcasts offers all the original suspense and vivid storytelling of the time, bringing World War II to life for a modern audience.
