by Hohne, Heinz

Condition: Good in Poor dust jacket


NY: Coward-McCann. Good in Poor dust jacket. 1970. First American Edition. Hardcover. 690pp., illus., maps, book sale ink stamped inside front cover and on title page, Some highlighting in yellow througout book. .

The SS was the terror of Europe. Swearing eternal allegiance to Adolf Hitler, it infiltrated every aspect of German life and was responsible for the deaths of millions. This gripping history recounts the strange and, at times, absurd true story of Hitler's SS. It exposes an organization that was not directed by some devilishly efficient system but was the product of accident, inevitability, and the random convergence of criminals, social climbers, and romantics. Above all, this eye-opening book describes in fascinating detail the chaotic political conditions that allowed the SS-despite rivalries and bizarre conditions-to assume and exercise unaccountable power.
