Germany’s in the Details

The Germans are detail-oriented. I don’t mean to sound stereotypical, but during the Nazi era countless documents, books, newspapers, magazines and reference works of all kinds—no matter how seemingly insignificant—were published for the populace. These pages come from a desk reference that was thick as a brick and filled with the kind of factoids that have become increasingly more popular in the Wiki era.

The general tone of the volume was written in an ideological way, promoting Nazism in daily life. But the range of material spans everything from the footprints of wild animals (for hunters) to aircraft and ship formations. Curious themes, including accordion and drum options, and styles of buoys, are combined with traffic signage and worldwide airplane wing markings.
