About this book

This book analyzes the factors that determined the organization, conduct and output of Nazi propaganda during World War II, in an attempt to re-assess previously inflated perceptions about the influence of Nazi propaganda and the role of the regime's propagandists in the outcome of the 1939-45 military conflict.

Reviews

'A refreshing reading and a solid appraisal of the omnipresent manipulation of information and disinformation during the Second World War in Germany. The quality of interpretation, the attention to detail, and reader-friendly narrative must be mentioned here. All these add substantial value to Kallis's depiction of Nazi wartime propaganda. Kallis has placed the subject of Nazi propaganda in its broader context and has addressed important questions regarding political religions, totalitarianism and fascism. Amongst the new generation of scholars forming in the footsteps of those who, like Roger Griffin, Michael Burleigh, Emilio Gentile, and Walter Adamson, revised the discipline in the 1990s, Kallis is arguably the most prominent. This book certainly substantiates this claim.' - Marius Turda, Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions

'This book presents a thoroughly researched summary of current debates about Nazi propaganda with a main focus on the war years...[Kallis] provides the English-speaking reader with a brief survey that covers all relevant aspects of Nazi war propaganda and challenges the assumption that Germans followed Goebbels' perfectly-orchestrated propaganda'. - Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television
