Chris William’s new book THIRD REICH COLLECTIBLES IDENTIFICATION & PRICE GUIDE provides the reader with not only a treasure trove of bright color artifact photos, but also an understandable explanation of the history of the NSDAP and its major organizations that existed during that dark period of history. Chris does an excellent job of breaking down the complex and often times overlapping organizations that existed during the Third Reich.The valuation ranges that Chris provided for these artifacts were accurate, covered a wide array of items, and were in an easy to understand format. He included the more commonly encountered items as well as those rarely seen outside of advanced collections and museums. This pricing information is a great asset to those not familiar with the current collectibles market valuations for these types of items.Another specific area, in which this book shines, is the inclusion of the memorabilia of many smaller Nazi groups and organizations, such as the Small Gardener Association, and the often misidentified Nazi Stenographers Guild. This information allows one to realize the level of pervasiveness of the Nazi regime into the everyday life of the German people and understand the power that their government held over its people.I feel this book offers much to not only the novice collector, who will indeed benefit greatly from its concentrated information, but also to the advanced collector and student of history, due to the well researched content. Being a collector for over 35 years, I was still able to learn quite a bit about some of the more obscure and elusive Nazi German organizations. I know that this book will drive up interest by collectors in these often overlooked (and still affordable) secondary organizations.
