This is a groundbreaking new study of an overlooked area of Second World War History.

"Stephenson's consideration of Nazism in terms of the conflict between rural precinct and urban neighborhood is extremely useful, and her discussion of the local men who left during the war and of the conscripted foreign workers, prisoners of war, and refugees from bombed-out north German cities who took their places is compelling and dramatic. Her narrative account of the hardships of 1943-1945 is unparalleled." -Peter Fritzsche, The Historian, 2009 Listed in "The A-List" on Today's Books mention- Book News Inc./ August 2007 "Stephenson has produced a deeply analytical, thoroughly researched, perceptive study of all aspects of live in Germany during the Second World War." - European History Quarterly "In her top-down analysis of the relationship between the National Socialist state and society, Stephenson describes with remarkable local detail the many attempts, and what she sees as the many conspicuous failures, of the Nazi regime to win local support. She also describes the many ways in which the Third Reich caused hardship and suffering for ordinary Wurttembergers, especially toward the end of the war...Stephenson has written what will no doubt be considered the standard survey of Wurttemberg during the Third Reich..." -Andrew Stuart Bergerson, H-Net Reviews, April 2007--Sanford Lakoff "H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online " "Her finely textured analysis of the politics of the everyday life in the hinterlands of southwestern Germany underscores the widely acknowledged difficulty of reducing grassroots behavior in the Third Reich to simple categories of support and opposition...all readers will likely appreciate the wealth of local detail she has unearthed to support her conclusions." - The Historian--Sanford Lakoff
