Early praise for our new  guide book on Hitler Youth Quex:


A book review should appear soon in 2024, in the prestigious  German journal Filmblatt, published by CineGraph, Hamburg. We shall also be reaching out to other academic journals in the hope that they might review the book, as well.

Our first academic journal review appeared in February 2024:


[T]he greatest merit of Gillespie’s book is that he not only brings together many sources that are – if at all – difficult to access, but also that he makes them accessible to an English-speaking audience.

Hitler Youth Quex: A Guide for the English-speaking Reader’s unique selling point … is the way it presents and discusses a range of different primary sources and embeds them in the historical context.

"Gillespie's book is a treasure trove for scholars of history, film history and propaganda more generally. This includes graduate and postgraduate students, early career researchers and more established academics. As such it is recommended for the essential classroom reading lists on any course dealing with film propaganda." - The Historical Journal of Film, Radio & Television, 2024.


In the meanwhile, early feedback from Germany received from film historians and film institutions include:

" As someone who likes to piece together information from different sources to tell a story, I can definitely appreciate the thorough way of you going about your research! ..... The amount of archival research [you]  put into it is amazing."


" I started reading your Quex book last night. It's really very revealing! Respect and compliments!

--and later from the same film institution staff member:

I keep reading Quex every night. It's all very revealing! Great respect for your work! "


A well–known UK professor who did his own research on the HJ Quex film ten years ago wrote:

"It is enthusiastic people like you who generate new ideas and/or dig up materials which correct mistakes. If there is something I have learnt to respect since taking up the "----Project" it is the work done by serious collectors who will do everything to enhance their knowledge because they are fully interested in and committed to their subject matter."

And from the United States, a film historian who has published on Nazi Films in the past, wrote in March 2024:

Just received your book. Marvellous, singular achievement, one of a kind, I think I can say on first glance…..  I’ve begun, and it’s more than interesting. Somehow it feels personal and real. I love the subject, the inside details, the translated material, the little-known history, and all the elements that make up the whole. I’m also a big fan of informative notes (or footnotes) and surprising bibliographies.

From an American wholesaler of our books:

It surpasses all expectations. A remarkable  volume.
Quality is superb, with perfectly balanced black and white images, including the color pages. Congrats on completing the definitive Quex book!
