Advanced Level / "Grown up" Readership  
  This award winning book is an excellent read for able GCSE students, AS/A2 students, teachers and interested adults. I've found it to be a great source of information when planning lessons and have been able to make use of extracts from the books with pupils in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.
  As with all of the Access to history series, this book provides an excellent and accessible core for any advanced level study of the period. A highly recommended read for AS/A2 students and well worth looking at by GCSE students wanting to extend themselves.
  Ian Kershaw offers an excellent appraisal of Hitler, the Nazi's and the Cult that was established around the Fuhrer. An excellent resource for students wanting to get an understandng of more recent interpretations of the period.
Films for use in the classroom  
  Starring Robert Carlyse, this is a fantastic resource for use in the classroom. I've used exracts from it in interpretation lessons about the Munich Putsch and pupils have also said that they've found the film to be very useful when revising.
  Core text for students following the SHP GCSE. This book covers the period 1919-1945.
  This textbook is aimed at students on the C/D borderline at GCSe. It provides accessible and engaging exercises about the period that are enjoyed by pupils of all abilities. Brilliant book - and the accompanying teachers resource pack is highly recommended as well.
  Filled with accessible, interesting and well structured text and activities.
Historical Fiction  

Fatherland by Robert Harris. Brilliant book. Also available as an audio CD

The story has also been turned into a successful film, available on VHS Or on
