Plus, you already hit on most of the touchstones anyone without a really academic interest might think of.

It is interesting to see how perspective has changed during the years. I prefer less dated book though.

You mean books about III Reich published behind Iron Curtain? They aren't often translated as far as I know and my knowledge pertain to only those written in polish.

If you're interested in books about III Reich written behind Iron Curtain then I can recommend entire series by late Karol Grunberg, though after quick search it appears that his books weren't translated. There are also works by Franciszek Ryszka but I don't know if they were translated.

There is much more I assume, though for my own reading I prefer books written by foreign authors. If you're interested here is database listing all major (or maybe even all) libraries in Poland with extensive search options - http://karo.umk.pl/Karo/
It's also available in english.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
