Publisher's Summary

German women played an essential role in the Nazi movement that outweighed the Nazi Party's propaganda that a woman's position was solely in the home as mothers and child-bearers. Thirteen million of the projected 40 million German women in the Reich were active in Nazi Party organizations that promoted the regime's goals of racial purity, imperial conquest, and global war. The Nazi party was about as male-centered as any political party in history. Its ideas on women and women's rightful responsibilities in society were novel and, at best, radical. Despite this, the Party received widespread and active support among women in Germany at the time.

This book investigates Magda Goebbels, Leni Riefenstahl, and Winifred Wagner and how they became enchanted by Hitler and obliged his Nazi philosophy. These three ladies were not ordinary Germans. Magda was hitched to Joseph Goebbels, the Reich Minister of Enlightenment and Propaganda, and perhaps the most influential man of the Third Reich. An entertainer and famous movie chief, Leni was liable for a key publicity film. Winifred was hitched to author Richard Wagner's child and assumed responsibility for Wagner's inheritance.

Hitler was captivated by every one of the women and used them to add his longing to reestablish Germany to its past brilliance. The women concurred with Hitler's longing to renew Germany's significance and perceived that once he became Chancellor, they would benefit enormously. These women didn't act as indicated by the standards of the times. They got out of the endorsed jobs relegated to ladies.

Uneven..and strange

interesting subject matter, but the book could have been better. covered only three women and vamped with a largely repetitive summary chapter. there was also a chapter about women's fashions inserted out of nowhere .
tinny sound in places, I'm pretty sure narrator has changed about 3/4 of the way through

.
