Author journalist J. W. Mohnhaupt examines the literal and symbolic uses of animals by the Third Reich, looking at the use of animals as weapons, as symbols in propaganda, and in research to support racial theories. The study draws on print propaganda, schoolbooks, diaries, and journals from the period. Discussion touches on the Buchenwald Zoological Garden, guard dogs and tracking dogs, and Nazi trophy hunting.
