They Wanted War by Tolischus
Dwells on religious and artistic aspects of National Socialism which are often passed over--viz., Hitler's strongly-held views on good versus bad art, and even good versus bad methods of art criticism. (Studying "periods" in Art is wrong--all art is simply national art.) Also stressed more than usually is the notion that the Catholic Church, which for centuries worked through the Hapsburgs in the Austrian Empire, was "Rome's" attempt to prolong its control over the German people. The answer, starting in 1934, was to de-emphasize Christianity (talk about a war on Christmas!) and bring back the old German-Scandinavian religion--Thor, Odin/Wotan, and all those old pagan heroes. Winter solstice bonfires replaced Christmas trees, Wagner's treatments of the old legends were celebrated, etc.
Tolischus, then, presents a more holistic view of 1930s Germany--even the Volkswagen 'beetle' puts through!--to show that National Socialism was more than aircraft production and blitzkrieg tactics.
