Description

This is a quality hardbound, large format book, filled with amazing color photographs. Text and captions are in German, with a separate English language photo caption translation sheet included. Walter Frenz was a young German Air Force Staff photographer, best known as the cameraman for Leni Reifenstahl's groundbreaking film 'Triumph of the Will', in which new cinematic techniques made their debut. Stationed at Hitler's Headquarters in World War Two, he experimented with color photography on the subjects around him. After the war, the negatives remained buried for nearly 50 years. Taken at Hitler's secret military headquarters in East Prussia, Wolfschanze (Wolf's Lair), the full color photographs taken by Walter Frentz and contained in this book are truly astounding. The story of daily operations at this important military nerve center of World War Two comes to life in sharp, crisp, living color. Seen as never before are all the notables of the Third Reich who made history in those terrible war years. Of course Adolf Hitler himself is depicted in numerous settings and entourages. All of these people came to the Wolf's Lair to confer, be promoted, be awarded, or just rub elbows with the power elite of the Third Reich. Another section deals with Hitler's inspection of armaments, and once again the reader is astounded by the width and breadth of variety of never-before-published photographs, all in living color. Full-page and gate-fold pages comprise over half the photos.
