APEX OF GLORY: THE HISTORY OF MERCEDES-BENZ 1885-1955

Details

This book relives the glories and tragedies of the Mercedes-Benz Company over seven turbulent decades and reveals the incredible rise of the company throughout the period of Hitler's Third Reich. The author has managed to put together a compelling and objective narrative relating to this period. In particular it is the huge and largely previously unpublished photographic archive of Mercedes-Benz covering the period of the Third Reich which makes this book standout for historians. The archive had originally been put together by Mercedes-Benz in 1940 and given to Hitler as a special presentation gift of over 50 albums. These were found by US troops in 1945 and take back to the US. Basically forgotten the author stumbled upon this treasure trove of images.
