Following that poll which voted Jaunty Tilt - A Presentation of Berets Worn During the Vietnam War as the most... specialised of the books listed (should I be concerned that that was the one title on the list I own?), I found this on an email from a book dealer:

A Guide to 3rd Reich Cutlery, its Monograms, Logos, & Maker Marks by: James Yannes

So, do we think this rates higher on the Asperger's scale than Jaunty Tilt?


"The cutlery-spoons, knives, and forks of Germany's 3rd Reich communicates its own special history. In A Guide to 3rd Reich Cutlery, its Monograms, Logos, and Maker Marks, author James A. Yannes provides a detailed and heavily illustrated reference book containing extensive and relative historical exposition on a broad range of personal, organizational, and commemorative cutlery of the 3rd Reich beginning in the early 1920s to its demise in 1945.

Augmented with more than 430 photographs, A Guide to 3rd Reich Cutlery, its Monograms, Logos, and Maker Marks details the cutlery that was used by the people and organizations that were the 3rd Reich-from the private services of Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun, Herman Goering, and Heinrich Himmler to organizations such as the SS, Red Cross, Hitler Youth, German Railway, the Armed Forces including the Wehrmacht and W-SS as well as commemoratives such as the U-47 submarine.

For collectors and World War II history buffs, A Guide to 3rd Reich Cutlery, its Monograms, Logos, and Maker Marks details a unique aspect of history that can be held in the hand."

I'd say yes due to it's highly specialised subject and the fact of it's somewhat tangential relationship to the conflict in question.
