This Nazi propaganda photobook documents Hitler's triumphant trip through Bohemia, Moravia and Memelland (in far East Prussia), the recent additions to his Greater German Reich.
The 72 photographs featured in this book are from Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler's personal photographer, and depict, among many other views, the Fuehrer being greeted by ethnic Germans in Prague; a meeting with Himmler, Heydrich and Wehrmacht Generals at Prague's Hradcany Castle; Hitler in conversation with Joachim von Ribbentrop (his Foreign minister who wrote the foreword of this book) and Czech President Dr. Emil Hacha; his review of Kriegsmarine ships in Memel, and his triumphant return to Berlin after his latest territorial conquests. The photographs are reproduced in stunning photogravure.
