The Nazis styled themselves as warriors against moral degeneracy. Yet, as Norman Ohler reveals, the entire Third Reich was permeated with drugs- cocaine, heroin, morphine and, most of all, methamphetamines, or crystal meth, used by everyone from factory workers to housewives, and crucial to troops' resilience - even partly explaining German victory in 1940. The promiscuous use of drugs at the very highest levels also impaired and confused decision-making, with Hitler and his entourage taking refuge in potentially lethal cocktails of stimulants. Blitzed forms a crucial missing piece of the story of WW2.
