The Encyclopedia of the Third Reich is a two-volume text edited by Christian Zentner and Friedemann Bedürftig.[1][2]

The Encyclopedia of Third Reich is considered[by whom?] one of the leading source materials for information about Nazi Germany and the reign of Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party. The text covers nearly every major figure, organization, and event during the years of Nazi Germany. It does not, however, address the military history of World War II, only the role in which the Third Reich participated through policies and national directives.

Most legitimate historians[who?] of the Second World War consider the Encyclopedia of the Third Reich to be a critical text and it can be found at most major American and British universities. The text, is however, condemned by some historians[who?] as presenting a biased view of Nazi Germany.
