The Center for World War II studies and Conflict Resolution at Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, NJ, presents a video podcast from its spring 2012 lecture series. In this program, author and historian Richard Lucas discusses his book Axis Sally: The American Voice of Nazi Germany.

Throughout World War II in Europe, all serving overseas were treated to the radio broadcasts of “Axis Sally,” an American who broadcast continuous appealing propaganda over German radio.  She was the American voice of Nazi Germany and her name was Mildred Gillars.  Author Lucas, who has researched and documented  Gillar’s career, relates the life and times of this infamous broadcaster, detailing in particular her relationship with Hitler’s Nazi regime and her subsequent trial for treason after the war.
