In May 1940, the German Army swept over Europe, unleashing a campaign of battles of annihilation on a hitherto unheralded scale.
France was quickly overcome and Holland, along with Belgium, fell in a matter of days.
At the head of this vast operation was the Fu?hrer with his Supreme Command, and on hand to document the highlights of their inimitable campaign was Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler's close friend and official photographer. This is an invaluable photographic record of the events of Spring 1940, originally published as Mit Hitler im Westen, which was regarded as Heinrich Hoffman's finest work.
The striking images displayed within provide both an intimate view inside the life of the Fu?hrer, and present a chilling glimpse into one of history's most vicious campaigns, and darkest hours.
An important historic work, With Hitler in the West provides a fascinating insight into the events of 1940, that shook the world.
