Der totale Rausch: Drogen im Dritten Reich

Drogen im Dritten Reich: Norman Ohler geht den Tätern von damals buchstäblich unter die Haut und schaut direkt in ihre Blutbahnen hinein. Arisch rein ging es darin nicht zu, sondern chemisch deutsch – und ziemlich toxisch. Wo die Ideologie für Fanatismus und »Endsieg« nicht mehr ausreichte, wurde hemmungslos nachgeholfen. Als Deutschland 1940 Frankreich überfiel, standen d...

    Sensational history with two premises: first, that Adolf Hitler was addicted to the cocktail of drugs prescribed to him by his Doktor Feelgood, Theodor Morell. This includes cocaine, oxycodone (brand name Eukodal), and methamphetamines (Pervitin). Ohler posits that Hitler's addictions and withdrawal...

    Nowhere were the 1920s more roaring than in Berlin - cocaine and morphine were available over the counter and cheaper than alcohol, and everyone was escaping reality, particularly since life in the Weimar Republic, with its mass unemployment and hyperinflation, was such a nightmare! Then these drugs...

    Entertaining book filled with interesting premises. Ohler's account of Hitler and his drug use is quite fascinating, and seems solid. I didn't realize Hitler's addiction reached such levels, and given that it wouldn't be surprising if a variety of his health issues cropped up due to rampant drug use...

    Hitler and the Third Reich: From Teetotaller to JunkieWhat are the images we have of the German army from WWII? Manic Blitzkrieg attacks rolling over neighboring countries.

    Hitler was a meth head. Seriously. A genuine meth head.Not content with merely being a genocidal maniac, a rubbish tactician and the twentieth century’s biggest asshole, the Fuhrer was also a methamphetamine and oxycodone addict, getting both drugs and sundry other dodgy chemicals regularly mai...

    With thousands upon thousands of books written about Nazi Germany and its “Fuhrer,” Adolf Hitler, one wonders if there is a relevant area of research that has not been mined thoroughly. The appearance of Norman Ohler’s BLITZED: DRUGS IN THE THIRD REICH provides an affirmative answer. ...
