This very hard to find 9-3/4 x 12-3/4 inch, 184-page hardcover book in excellent condition was written by Dr. Joseph Goebbels and published 1934 by the NSDAP owned Franz Eher Nachf. Publishing House in Munich. The extremely heavily illustrated book is an excellent summary of the battle for Berlin, written from the view of the Nazis. Berlin has always been a strong-hold of the Communists and Socialists, especially in the districts where the ordinary workers lived. The legendary battles and street fights between SA Brownshirts and Red Front Commies were probably not as intense in other German cities as they were in Berlin. Goebbels published this book to honor those who conquered Berlin for the National Socialists. The documentary starts with a description of the horrible living and working conditions in Berlin after the end of World War One, shows those who where to be held responsible for that, then of course the battles of the Stormtroopers and finally the seizure of power in 1933!  What makes this copy especially desirable is a dedication in the front by the hand of Hitler's deputy, Rudolf Hess, to SS-Hauptsturmführer Ernst Zaske, a very early SS member (#1338) and in the Stab (inner circle) of RFSS Heinrich Himmler, recipient of the golden party badge and several times visitor on the Berghof. The book was given to him by Rudolf and Ilse Hess as a Christmas gift in 1936. With a nice dedication and signature, as well as a photograph depicting the Hess couple with Zaske (we think he is the person in the foreground on the right).

Goebbels dedicated this book to SA Sturm Leader Horst Wessel who was killed by the Communists in Berlin (some sources say his death had nothing to do with the battles between Nazis and Commies) and who became the #1 martyr in the Third Reich.

the politicians that brought misery to the Berliners (according to Goebbels) and riots in the streets of Berlin.
