    The Nazi regime preached an ideology of physical, mental, and moral purity. But as Norman Ohler reveals in this gripping new history, the Third Reich was saturated with drugs.

    Den første omfattende undersøgelse af sandheden bag brugen af narkotika i det Tredje Rige. En øjenåbnende bog, der skildrer begivenhederne i Nazityskland og på de europæiske slagmarker i et nyt perspektiv - fra begyndelsen i 1933 til undergangen i 1945. Det Tredje Rige var gennemsyret af stoffer: kokain, heroin, morfin og frem for alt metamfetamin, som blev brugt af alle fra fabriksarbejdere til husmødre og var afgørende for troppernes modstandskraft.
