Born in to a military family, Tim Heath's interest in history led him to research the air war of the Second World War, focussing on the German Luftwaffe and writing extensively for The Armourer Magazine. During the course of his research he worked closely with the German War Graves Commission at Kassel, Germany, and met with German families and veterans alike. Hitler's Germany is his third book, following the well-received Hitler's Girls that was born out of this research and it's sequel, In Hitler's Shadow.

histor--Sara Jorgensen "Booklist "
If we do not learn the lessons of history we will be doomed to repeat the behaviors, national and personal, that have resulted in the tragedies of the past. One outstanding 20th Century example is how Germany was treated at the end of World War I and how she was treated at the end of World War II -- that latter treatment having prevented a World War III for the past 75 years. Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Tim Heath's "Creating Hitler's Germany: The Birth of Extremism" is very highly recommended for community and academic library 20th Century History collections.
