Book Description

The author has drawn on primary historical sources in the form of secret SS archives, confidential papers and diaries and hundereds of personal interviews to reveal that the SS was not directed by some devilishly efficient system, but was the product of accident, inevitability and the grouping together of criminals, place-seekers and romanticists.
