Nazi Germany, also known as the Third Reich and officially the Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945, was the German state between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party controlled the country which they transformed into a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany became a totalitarian ethnocentric state in which nearly all aspects of life were controlled by the government.

The Third Reich name, meaning Third Realm or Third Empire, alluded to the Nazis' perception that Nazi Germany was the successor of the earlier Holy Roman (800–1806) and German (1871–1918) empires. The regime ended after the Allies defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.

The Dick Tracy comic strip was being produced during the time when the United States was involved in World War II, and some characters were introduced into the strip to reflect the reality of the times.
