The OU Cymru Lecture: War and Society in Germany, 1939–45

Hay Festival 2009, 
Why did ordinary Germans keep on fighting to the end when they knew the war was lost? The author of The Third Reich at War examines the effects of war on German society between 1939 and 1945, asks how people coped with it, and looks at its longer-term effects.
