Aviation Logistics: The Dynamic Partnership of Air Freight and Supply Chain lInarge part to his enablerprivate doctor Theodor Morell Hitler went from vegetarian teetotaller at the start of the war to full blown junkie at the end who was having 8 to 10 injections and 120 to 150 tablets a week The ist of drugs he was on is incredible cocaine morphine strychnine Pervitin meth and Eukodal a powerful strain of heroin to name just a few He was also being injected with all manner of bizarre concoctions derived from animal parts hardly vegetarian Hitler s treatments began in 1941 which is coincidentally when the war started to go south for the Nazis After the surprising triumph of Blitzkrieg which he had no part in and was as astounded as the Allies Hitler demanded he have full control of the armed forces and his decisions may not have been improved by making them on a cocktail of Class A drugs Morell may have inadvertently helped the Allies by turning Hitler into a drug addict and destroying his health Again Ohler isn t foolish enough to make drugs the singular cause for the major turning points of the war but he does make a very strong case for their importance when considering them The book is filled with remarkable stories One of the most memorable is the creation of the Neger combat vessels one man U boats which were intended to be hit and run attackers and which turned out to be ittle than metal coffins for most of their German pilots who re still at the bottom of the sea Some of the survivors almost went mad from chewing cocaine gum and popping meth pills to stay awake for 10 days in a row in order to navigate their near useless subs in the underwater blackness It was an insane plan only the desperate and strung out could ve come up with Norman Ohler s Blitzed isn t just a meticulously researched and informative read but also utterly compelling written in an accessible style with a novelist s eye for pacing More than that it s an important book that will undoubtedly change the way historians and the public view Hitler the Third Reich and the Second World War going forward An absolutely outstanding and first rate book Blitzed is a must read for anyone interested in earning about the sensational and ittle reported on druggie underside of the Nazis Hitler and the Third Reich From Teetotaller to JunkieWhat are the images we have of the German army from WWII Manic Blitzkrieg attacks rolling over neighboring countries For while the whole world thought they were a superior fighting force as Hitler claimed The element was surprise shock and awe and a kind of audacity And what images do we have of the war time Hitler Ranting raging increasingly out of control a dictator and a despot possibly insanely evil But how is it these two sets of images are connected Novelist Ohler in a sense researched the answer to this uestion but instead of writing a novel about it as he had originally intended he writes a non fiction account of The Third Reich as both accomplishing astonishing military achievements and spectacularly crashing to defeat fueled by drugs Particuarly the drug Pervitin which was distributed nation wide among manufacturers needing to ramp up production 247 and the military that needed to march at breakneck pace trampling Belgium and France and Poland and many others on ittle or no sleep Pervitin essentially a version of the crystal meth that Breaking Bad s Walter was cooking up both energized and finally enervated Hitler "And An Entire Country Though This Drug Was Just The "an entire country though this drug was just the of the iceberg when it came to Der Fuhrer apparently as in his ater years he was being injected sometimes multiple times a day with a fairly crippling dose of than 80 substances many of them altering History books sometimes barely acknowledge Hitler s dependence on drugs but it s essentially a footnote as ideology trumps pharmacology and reasonably so I think Mein Kampf alone makes it clear what his murderous and twisted intentions are And of course without claiming ideology is irrelevant to the process Ohler s claim is that drugs were an important part of the cocktail that first emboldened and enlivened Germany s war effort and then poisoned Germany as it poisoned the world mid The Qur'an, Morality and Critical Reason: The Essential Muhammad Shahrur last centuryBlitzed has a best seller titleike Mary Roach s Gulp Or Bonk he credits Michael Stip of REM for the title and it has some occasionally sensationalized and purple prose Remorselessly the needle penetrated his skin the plunger was pulled back the stuff shot into his veins and he escaped again into self delusion and it sometimes feels ike a cross between novel and scholarship but on the whole he is mightily persuasive and has the sources to back him up in his sensational claim The focus of the story is actually Otto Morel Hitler s personal physician who increasingly attended even top secret meetings in case The Boss needed a boost Ironically Hitler was known as a tee totaller a vegetarian the very image of German purity demanding the same of his people But Hitler made possible the addiction to Pervitin of his fighting army and increasingly Hitler and his high command also became addicted We get a good ook at Hitler s rampant drug use and 3 hour a night sleep schedule and increasingly manic bunker isolation osing energy and his mind and eventual physical collapse but Morel was there as his main Man his hook up the very person who both kept him alive and nearly killed him That Hitler would fail to fully understand the effects of the toxic stew he was ingesting is amazing That it influenced his military and political judgement is undeniable Hitler shot up by Morel with a stew of vitamins and hormones and drugs needing an even greater boost eventually got hooked on Eukodal Whose Active Ingredient Is An active ingredient is an called Oxycodon synthesized from the raw material of opium As with any addiction it feeds you and feeds on you in the process of addictionIn the process of detailing the decline it sometimes gets tiresome but it iis peppered with numerous anecdotes taken from the medical diary of Morel and other umpublished sources Some of them are sensational too Leni Reifenstahl given morphine enemas by the good doctor Morel Morel also helping to addict Hitler s young over Eva Braun hiding the physical effects On Hitler of the young Eva Braun s violent sexual practices and so onBut Blitzed makes clear that between autumn 1941 until the end Hitler did not enjoy a sober day all the time he insisted in his arrogance that he be the Supreme Commander of the Army The drugs Ohler insists do not diminish Hitler s guilt his objectives and maniacal commitment to genocide and world domination his complete self absorptio. Eholfen Als Deutschland 1940 Frankreich überfiel standen die Soldaten der Wehrmacht unter 35 Millionen Dosierungen Pervitin Das Präparat – heute als Crystal Meth bekannt – machte den Blitzkrieg erst möglich Auch der vermeintliche Abstinenzler Hitler griff gerne zur pharmakologischen Stimulanz Als er im Winter. .

With thousands upon thousands of books written about Nazi Germany and its Fuhrer Adolf Hitler one wonders if there is a relevant area of research that has not been mined thoroughly The appearance of Norman Ohler s BLITZED DRUGS IN THE THIRD REICH provides an affirmative answer A regime that prided itself on its anti drug mantra was The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl led by a man usually pumped full of drugs by his personal physician Dr Theodor Morell The premise of Ohler s work first published in Germany in 2015 is that the Nazis provided the world with a chemicalegacy that remains a major problem today opioid methamphetamine addiction The Nazis allowed the use of Volksdroge the people s drug unencumbered until the passage of the Reich Opium Law in 1941 Today the substance is known as crystal meth and is consumed by over 100 million people worldwide though in most places it is illegal or strictly regulatedOhler s thesis presents the Nazi dichotomy It publicized and demanded that all should possess a constitution pure of drugs that could affect the mind and body Hitler was portrayed as a vegetarian teetotaler who would not allow any foreign bodies to enter his system On the other hand the Furhrer would become dependent on a series of short term stimulants from 1936 on that would progress to an intravenous diet of animal extracts and after 1943 hard drugs Exile and Pilgrim like Eukodal whose active ingredient is oxycodone These pseudo medications were administered by Dr Theodor Morell a specialist in skin conditions and sexually transmitted diseases who would pollute the Nazieadership with his concoctions and use Hitler s dependency on his treatment to try and construct a hormonal industry called the Ukrainian Pharma Works in areas seized by the WehrmachtAccording to Ohler the original rise of crystal meth took place in Nazi Germany The German chemical industry received a major boost in the 1930s under the direction of Dr Fritz Hauscheld the head of pharmacology at the Temmler Chemical Works who job was to discover a performance enhancing drug for the Third Reich The discovery of morphine made a different scale of war possible as men too injured to fight could now return to the battlefield Temmler s research would patent the drug Pervitin speed Germany s first methamphetamine that produced feelings of euphoria energy self confidence and strength Temmler s successful marketing campaign would result in the drug as a panacea for a number of issu Guardian articleOpening Methamphetamine the Volkesdroge 1933 1938 National Socialism was toxic in the truest sense of the word It gave the world a chemical egacy that still affects us today a poison that refuses to disappearHow dirty one feels at the end of certain books would ove to be able to scrub my brain clean with a hard brush This is a very good rendition of the chemical factories and how Hitler s rants were drug fueled affairs Blitzed is worth a read but it weighs in at slightly a Hannah Montana: The Movie less affair than the hype would have you believeAffects German generational families trying to inflict fascist culture on today s willfully ignorant AmeriKKKans First of all despite the author s infectious zest and admirable research I m not sure I share his conviction of the importance of his findings in influencing many events of world War Two This essentially is that Nazi Germany was fuelled by narcotics and in particular a drug called Pervitin which essentially was crack cocaine in pure form The argument that the blitzkrieg of France couldn t have happened without Pervitin is probably the most convincing of his arguments though eually it might be said it couldn t have happened without the colossal ineptitude of the French general staff or without the Tiger tank When he extends his argument to the Luftwaffe I found it hard to imagine how crack cocaine might help a pilot in a dog fight Not that I ve ever taken crack cocaine The author also states as part of his argument that the Spitfire was far superior to the ME 109 which it wasn t Most agree they were well matched in terms of capabilities with the German aircraft having by far the superior fire power untilater in the war I was far ess convinced by his argument that all the old biographies of Hitler need to be revised to include
HIS DRUG HABIT THE AUTHOR TENDS TO EXAGGERATE HITLERdrug habit The author tends to exaggerate Hitler oss of reasoning after he became hooked on morphine citing the decision to counterattack the Allies in the Ardennes as one prominent example However this wasn t an especially crazy decision given the circumstances and his insane history of decision making and the counterattack was even succeeding until the skies cleared and "the RAF was able to operate again Hitler s reasoning was insane ong before he took any "RAF was able to operate again Hitler s reasoning was insane ong before he took any into his body I m not convinced drugs made him any insane Nevertheless a fascinating read Well written and fascinating I l review it tomorrow after I take some pills Blitzed Drugs in Nazi Germany AcknowledgementsBibliographyReferencesPicture CreditsIndex In this fascinating account of drug use in the Third Reich author Norman Ohler takes us on a journey through the history of Germany and explains how and why it became a centre of pharmaceutical research Although the Natio Nowhere were the 1920s roaring than in Berlin cocaine and morphine were available over the counter and cheaper than alcohol and everyone was escaping reality particularly since ife in the Weimar Republic with its mass unemployment and hyperinflation was such a nightmare Then these drugs started to be outlawed for obvious reasons physicalmental health damage addiction death etc and the Nazis came to power in 1933 supposedly ushering in an era of abstinence and sobriety mirroring their Fuhrer Adolf Hitler In Blitzed Drugs in Nazi Germany Norman Ohler reveals the shocking extent with which the Third Reich was riddled with hardcore drugs from Hitler to the ordinary German hausfrau and what a major factor certain drugs ike Pervitin played in the war Pervitin or crystal meth as it s known today was seen as a performance enhancer to help you become productive and overcome fatigue Two tablets would keep you wired for 48 hours which proved enormously useful once war broke out and the Wehrmacht began advancing on France German soldiers kept popping Pervitin and went days without sleep marching endlessly round the clock towards Paris Ohler doesn t claim Pervitin was behind Blitzkrieg s success but the implication is there it certainly seemed to help a great deal and it would explain the speed with which the Germans conuered France The most fascinating part of the book is Hitler and his escalating drug use thanks.
