The Nazis were masters of manipulation, double standards and deceit, and they had firm plans for the women of the Third Reich. While men took all the important decisions, the woman's role was to be limited to Kinder, Küche und Kirche (children, kitchen and church). But as the war went on, how many women were complicit in the atrocities carried out by German forces? And what did it cost to resist the regime? From the Reich Bride Schools through the Bund Deutscher Mädel and the bizarre Lebensborn Aryan breeding programme to the brothels of the Sicherheitsdienst, this book covers the lives of women in the Third Reich, concentrating on those who sought personal power and influence amid the chaos and death.
