In his latest book for Sutton, Guido Knopp turns the spotlight on the leading women of the Third Reich and the role they played in the Nazi regime. To illustrate this theme he has painted vivid pen portraits of six famous women who were all bound up with Hitler's regime: Evan Braun, Hitler's mistress; Magda Goebbels, wife of the Reich Propaganda Minister; Winifred Wagner, grand-daughter of composer Richard Wagner; Leni Riefenstahl, Nazi film director; Zarah Leander, Nazi film star; and the legendary screen goddess Marlene Dietrich. The lives of these women prove how the Nazis envisaged the future of 'German womanhood' and how things looked in reality. Supported by previously unpublished photographs and the words of close friends and colleagues of those portrayed, Knopp brings back to life a generation who, with a few courageous exceptions, succumbed to enticement and violence.
