OCR: Germany 1933-63 - KQ 1

Here is a collection of all my notes typed up including diagrams from my AS level History (OCR) last year

  • Germany 1933-63

These notes go from Key Question 1-4 and are separately uploaded resources

I got 94/100 and believe these notes helped me a lot

I also have the same kind of notes for Britain 1918-51, so see my other shared resources

Hope this is helpful :)
