Das Reich : The Military Role of the 2nd SS Divison
James Lucas
The 2nd SS Division was an elite, highly trained, volunteer fighting force, the premier division of the Waffen SS and far removed from the more familiar SS Nazi Police role. Driven always by the military virtues of courage, duty and loyalty, it saw action in some of the bloodiest battles of the war, in particular on the Eastern Front. It fought a hard war, suffered terrible casualties, and set new standards of battlefield excellence. Through extensive research, James Lucas tells the story of close quarter hand-to-hand combat, of commanders who led from the front, and of camaraderie and unit pride.

The Field Men : The SS Officers Who Led the Einsatzkommandos - The Nazi Mobile Killing Units (Schiffer Military History)
by French MacLean
Two thousand nine hundred forty-five men lined up in four motorized columns immediately behind the German Army on June 22, 1941 as it prepared to launch Operation Barbarossa - the German attack on the Soviet Union - an attack designed to win the war. Their mission - for the glory of Greater Germany - was to butcher as many human beings as they could get their hands on - men, women and children who were at that very moment peacefully sleeping in their warm beds in dozens of large cities and scores of small hamlets from the Gulf of Finland to the Black Sea, and from the border with old Poland to the outskirts of Moscow. The field men of the Einsatzkommandos, the men of Bach and Beethoven, Grimm and Gutenberg - and now Hitler and Heydrich - were very thorough at what they did. Over the course of the next two years, by means of machine-guns, carbines, gas vans, explosives, rifle butts or ax handles, the field men would slaughter 1,300,000 people. The Field Men, a companion volume to MacLean's The Camp Men: the SS Officers Who Ran the Nazi Concentration Camp System, covers the entire gamut, from the organization of the units, to the SS officers who served in this scourge on the Eastern Front. Some 380 SS officers are described in full detail and extensively analyzed. The photographic section of the book contains over 175 photographs, while detailed maps show the locations for each unit throughout the campaign.

Masters of Death : The SS-Einsatzgruppen and the Invention of the Holocaust
by Richard Rhodes
Masters of Death is Richard Rhodes's chronological account of the Third Reich's Einsatzgruppen (a hand-picked task force) and its death work--the executions of 1.5 million people, Jews and non-Jews--in Russia and Eastern Europe from 1941 through 1943. Rhodes sees these operations (the victims were, almost exclusively, shot) as a ghastly prelude to the subsequent (and much more written-about) horrors of the death camps. In chilling--and occasionally excessive--detail, Rhodes describes the killings and the reasons behind the Reich's cautious, rather than precipitous, escalation of the same: the military's "concern for German and world opinion"; the need to improve methodology; and finally, the need to "condition" the troops, thereby avoiding "disabling trauma." Rhodes makes good use of firsthand accounts and outlines the effects the larger war (Pearl Harbor; the failure to defeat Britain) had on Hitler's attempted obliteration of European Jewry. His chapters on the nature of evil seem hurried and not particularly fresh. --H. O'Billovich -

Muller Journals : 1948-1950 the Washington Years, Volume 1
by Gregory Douglas
The man who created Hitler's dreaded Gestapo and was once thought to have died in the battle of Berlin, survived the war and in 1948 was recruited by the U.S. CIA. From 1948 through 1952, Muller lived in the Washington, D.C. area and worked closely with top leadership of the CIA and the Truman Administration. Muller kept regular journals during this period, putting down the secret activities of the fledgling CIA and his own observations about the inner workings of the White House and its top aides.

Nazi Millionaires: The Allied Search for Hidden SS Gold
by Theodore P. Savas, Kenneth D. Alford
Leading authors, Ken Alford and Ted Savas, dig into the dirty little secrets of post-war Europe and America. They uncover evidence of collusion at worst and the turning of a blind eye at best, which enabled many leading Nazi's to escape apprehension and to hold onto their ill-gotten gains. Alford and Savas describe how the principal powermongers of the "Reich Sicherheits Hauptamt" - The Reich Main Security Office, established by Himmler and Kaltenbrunner to oversee all security departments of the German State - squirreled away vast fortunes. Towards the end of the war, blackmail, unrestrained looting, theft and the bartering of human lives became sources of great profit for these men. Never ideologically motivated, these RSHA managers, who included college professors, bank executives and engineers - all of whom are named in this book - preyed on the misfortunes of others. After stealing and destroying in the most brutal fashion, most of the RSHA leaders returned to a "normal" existence after the war, continuing their lives as if nothing untoward had ever happened How did they mislead U.S. Army criminal investigators and walk away free men? What part did money, blackmail, counter-spying and murder play in these events? Ken Alford and Ted Savas address these and many other questions in this detailed investigation and exposé.
