    There's shedloads of examples on Amazon starting at around 70 Euro's, plus other books by him on the architecture of 'Germania' and other tomes about him and his trade by other authors.

    Remember, Google is your friend.

    There is definitely something that I find awe-inspiring and almost "magical" in the aesthetic of some of Speer's work...this was truly architecture for the Gods!



    Publisher's Overview

    Architect Léon Krier asks, “Can a war criminal be a great artist?” Speer, Adolf Hitler's architect of choice, happens to be responsible for one of the boldest architectural and urban oeuvres of modern times.

    First published in 1985 to an acute and critical reception, Albert Speer: Architecture 1932-1942 is a lucid, wide-ranging study of an important neoclassical architect. Yet is is simultaneously much more: a philosophical rumination on art and politics, good and evil. With aid from a new introduction by influential American architect Robert A. M. Stern, Krier candidly confronts the great difficulty of disentangling the architecture and urbanism of Albert Speer from its political intentions.
