Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Re­ich. Au­thor Nor­man Oh­ler ex­plains that Hitler did have a se­cret, but it wasn’t a weapon. In­stead, it was a mix of co­caine and opi­oids that he had be­come in­creas­ingly de­pen­dent upon. “Hitler needed those highs to sub­sti­tute [for] his nat­u­ral charisma, which he had lost in the course of the war,” Oh­ler says. Ama­zon, $17.

How We’ll Live On Mars Pe­tranek be­lieves that hu­mans could be on Mars soon: the scenario he lays out in the book’s open­ing pages has the first hu­man ex­pe­di­tion land­ing on Mars in 2027. That ex­pe­di­tion, he be­lieves, will not be car­ried out by NASA or other na­tions’ space agen­cies. In this exciting chron­i­cle, Pe­tranek in­tro­duces the cir­cus of lively char­ac­ters all en­gaged in a dra­matic ef­fort to be the first to set­tle the Red Planet. How We’ll Live on Mars brings first­hand re­port­ing, in­ter­views with key par­tic­i­pants, and ex­ten­sive re­search to bear on the ques­tion of how we can ex­pect to see life on Mars within the next twenty years. Ama­zon, $10.
