*Ellery Queen is both a fictional character and a pseudonym used by two Brooklyn cousins: Daniel Nathan, alias Frederic Dannay and Manford (Emanuel) Lepofsky, alias Manfred Bennington Lee.
The Triumph GT-6 is advertised on page 50, Harley Davidson out-performs—an advert on the inside rear cover—and a couple of Mustangs on the outside.  
Albert Speer was Adolf Hitler's chief architect before assuming office as Minister of Armaments and War Production. As "the Nazi who said sorry", he accepted responsibility at the Nuremberg trials and in his two autobiographical books "Inside the Third Reich" and "Spandau: The Secret Diaries".
Speer was sentenced at Nuremberg to 20 years in prison for his role in the Nazi regime, principally for the use of forced labour. He served the full sentence most of it at Spandau Prison in West Berlin. He was released in 1966 and died in 1981.
Some consider his demeanor and testimony at Nuremberg to have been a calculated performance to save his life. His level of involvement in the persecution of the Jews and his knowledge of the Holocaust still remain matters of dispute.
266 pages of period adverts, pin ups and articles with lots of quality photographs and illustrations.
