Description: The story of the invincible 'Silver Arrows' is an enduring legend, but who remembers that in the 1930s the cars racing under this famous name were massively promoted by the Nazis? Radio and TV journalist Eberhard Reuss paints a unique and richly illustrated portrait of that period of German motor racing. Stripping away the myths that surround Hitler's race-track battles, he reveals the deep involvement of the motor industry and its top sportsmen with the Nazi regime. Without massive government, i.e. Nazi, support, the German manufacturers could not have developed their world-beating machines.
