Description - Nazi Wireless Propaganda by Martin A. Doherty
An analysis of the Nazis' radio effort against the United Kingdom during World War II. Propaganda is presented in context: the purposes behind it, the changing patterns, themes, styles and techniques employed, and the impact upon the target audience and its morale. A study of the Nazi wireless broadcasts to Britain for the whole of World War II reveals a sophisticated and intelligent propaganda assault on the social and economic fabric of British society. In the end the British failed to succumb to the stupefying effects of Nazi propaganda and they traditionally congratulate themselves upon the national unity which immunized them against it. The author argues that this traditional view disguises a more complex, less appealing reality. The book includes a free compact disc of 24 German wartime broadcasts to Britain.
