480pp. Titel der englischen Originalausgabe The SS Alibi of a Nation 1922-45 In German. Based almost entirely on original German documents, including the captured files of the SS leadership, The SS: Alibi of a Nation gives a final account of the Nazi Praetorian Guard. With steadily mounting tension, the story moves from the origins of the SS before 1923 to its supremacy, twenty years later. The author sees the SS not as an historical accident, but as a tyrannical expression of bureaucracy in politics.
