I never voted for any German government, nor was I a victim of either state's legal or arbitrary powers. I did however, trip up over my own folly, for which I paid dearly. This book is about my extraordinary expereiences during the last weeks of the tottering Reich & the chaotic months that followed, as well as the disturbing insights they engendered over the ensuing years--. Afte the war, the Hitler generation - das Volk - instantly & collectively repudiated any personal knowledge of, let alone involvement in, the crimes of the Third Reich. Huge sums were paid by the new German government against the state's outstanding material and moral debts. Yet the thorny question of the political accountablility or moral responsibility of the ordinary German remained unresolved. for decades, it has influenced the country's political culture & marred its tireless efforts to come to terms with the past. It became the driving impulse for this book." Check out the scans. . First Edition First Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾".

The SS Brotherhood of the Bell: NASA's Nazis, JFK, And Majic-12 -The Nazis' Incredible Secret Technology

By Farrell, Joseph P

Kempton, Illinois, U.S.A.: Adventures Unlimited Press, 2006. -----Large soft cover, tight square and clean, flat uncreased spine, (xvii) 459 pages with illustrations, former owners ink date. "In 1945, a super high-tech Nazi secret weapons project code-named "The Bell" left its underground bunker in lower Silesia, along with all its project documentation, and a four-star SS general named Hans Kammler. Taken aboard a massive six engine Junkers 390 ultra-long range aircraft, "The Bell," Kammler, and all project records disappeared completely, along with the gigantic aircraft carrying them. It is thought to have flown to America or Argentina. As a prelude to this disappearing act, the SS murdered most of the scientists and technicians involved with the project, a secret weaon that according to one German Nobel prize-winning physicist, was given a classification of 'decisive for the war', a security classification higher than any other secret weapons project in the Third Reich, including its atomic bomb. What was "The Bell"? What new physics might the Nazis have discovered with it? How far did the Nazis go after the war to protect the advanced energy technology that it represented? In The SS Brotherhood of the Bell, alternative science and history researcher Joseph P. Farrell reveals a range of exotic technologies the Nazis had researched, and challenges the conventional views of the end of World War Two, the Roswell incident, and the beginning of MAJIC-12, the government's alleged secret team of UFO investigators."
