The twelve years, from 1933 to 1945, when Adolf Hitler was dictator of Nazi Germany stand out as one of the most remarkable periods in the history of the twentieth century. In many books on this subject, the personality of Hitler is so dominant that significant political, social, economic and international developments often retreat into the background. In this book Frank McDonough explains the dramatic history of the Nazi period within a wider context. By isolating key problem areas within current historical debates and by including a selection of primary source documents.
The AS textbooks are ideal for students who have never studied the history of these periods before. they provide detailed background information on the period studied, and include notes explaining key terms, lists of significant dates, and focus questions to consolidate learning.
All of the AS titles have been endorsed by OCR for use with their AS specification for history, and several of the titles will also be appropriate for Edexcel and AQA study units.
Many of the books include a seperate document section, where students can study and evaluate a range of source material.
Shorter themed books explore particular topics in greater depth. The topics examined can be linked with the period covering foundation texts, providing students and teachers with flexibillity in structuring A Level courses.
