520 |a National Socialist Leadership and Total War demonstrates that, contrary to widely-held current interpretations, Germany was organized for, and committed to, total war to an extent not usually recognized. Dr. Hancock studies the concepts of total war, and the policies and the attitudes of the National Socialist leadership to mobilizing the German economy and society for World War II. The author examines four leaders--Martin Bormann, Secretary to Hitler; Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister; Heinrich Himmler, Reichsfuhrer-SS; and Albert Speer, Minister for Armaments. Their policies are examined in both an ideological and economic context against the background of the German war effort, and it is shown that these leaders supported total war and strove to implement it.
