    Heya all! I'm studying Germany from 1919 - 1963 and was wondering if anyone has any good suggestions on actual reading books that would be interesting for the course? I just simply want to expand my knowledge and read a proper historical book rather than a textbook. Thanks!

    Not sure if this will be helpful to you, but I read a book by Robert Harris called Fatherland and really enjoyed it. I read this many years ago and still remember it fondly. It's about an alternate reality where Germany did not lose WW2 and all the things that would mean.

    There's also a tv series called Man in the High Castle on Amazon which envisions a future where the US lost WW2 and was successfully conquered by Nazi Germany and Japan. Again, fictional, but you might find it interesting.

    Makes you think, if nothing else.

    There are always plenty of good doccumentraies on yoitube, b but the Germans also produced a TV series called Heimat whichc covers your entire period and longer. Raher thna a hard study it might give you a feel for how life changed in Germany. Quite old now.
