     The Gestapo: A History of Horror
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing
Author(s): Jacques Delarue

A history of Nazi Germany's secret police written by one of their victims, with a new introduction by the author.

From 1933 to 1945, the Gestapo was Nazi Germany's chief instrument of counter-espionage, political suppression, and terror. Jacques Delarue, a saboteur arrested by the Nazis in occupied France, chronicles how the land of Beethoven elevated sadism to a fine art. The Gestapo: A History of Horror draws upon Delarue's interviews with ex-Gestapo agents to deliver a multi-layered history of the force whose work included killing student resisters, establishing Aryan eugenic unions, and implementing the Final Solution. This is a probing look at the Gestapo and the fanatics and megalomaniacs who made it such a successful and heinous organization?Barbie, Eichmann, Himmler, Heydrich, M�ller. The Gestapo's notorious reign led to the murder of millions. The Gestapo is an important documentation of what they did and how they did it.

     The Gestapo: A History of Hitler's Secret Police 1933-45
Publisher: Casemate Pub
Author(s): Rupert Butler

From its creation in 1933 until Hitler's death in May 1945, anyone living in Nazi-controlled territory lived in fear of a visit from the Gestapo--Geheime Staatpolizei--or Secret State Police. Young or old, rich or poor, nobody was beyond the attentions of a brutally efficient organization that spread its malign influence into every corner of Europe in the wake of the all-conquering German armed forces.

The Gestapo is a detailed history of Heinrich Himmler's evil organization, whose 20.000 members were responsible for the internal security of the Reich. Under its auspices, hundreds of thousands of civilians, resistance fighters, and spies in occupied Europe were brutalized, tortured, and murdered, and many, many more were deported to almost certain death in concentrations camps. The book describes the Gestapo's transformation into a vital element of the Nazi regime, operating from the most feared address in the Reich---Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse 8.

Based upon the Gestapo's own archives and eyewitness accounts, the author charts the development of the organization, its key figures, such as Reinhard Heydrich and Heinrich Muller, its brutal methods, and how the Gestapo dealt with internal security, including the various unsuccessful attempts to assassinate Hitler. The Gestapo is a lively and expert account of this notorious but little-understood secret police that terrorized hundreds of thousands of people across Europe.

     Gestapo: Instrument of Tyranny (Greenhill Military Paperbacks)
Publisher: Greenhill Books
Author(s): Edward Crankshaw

The sinister Gestapo planted its evil roots in the 1930s but it was during the horror of World War II that this notorious organization became identified as the Nazis' leading instrument of repression. Edward Crankshaw provides an authoritative overview of the organization, examining the trail of destruction it blazed across Europe, looking at its structures and its rivalries with other police organizations, and revealing the struggle for power within the Gestapo's nefarious bureau. As this brilliant book makes compellingly clear, the Gestapo grew. It sought out resistance brutally suppressing it with torture and execution used repression to deter opposition, filled the concentration camps with political opponents and ethnic 'undesirables,' and actively sought to promote the Nazi state's perverse policies

     Nazi Terror: The Gestapo, Jews, and Ordinary Germans
Publisher: Basic Books
Author(s): Eric Johnson, Eric A. Johnson

Nazi Terror tackles the central aspect of the Nazi dictatorship head on by focusing on the roles of the individual and of society in making terror work. Based on years of research in Gestapo archives, on more than 1,100 Gestapo and "special court" case files, and on surveys and interviews with German perpetrators, Jewish victims and ordinary Germans who experienced the Third Reich firsthand, Johnson's book settles many nagging questions about who, exactly, was responsible for what, who knew what, and when they knew it. Nazi Terror is the most fine-grained portrait we may ever have of the mechanism of terror in a dictatorship.

Publisher: University of Nebraska Press
Author(s): Lucie Aubrac

Lucie Aubrac (1912-2007), of Catholic and peasant background, was teaching history in a Lyon girls' school and newly married to Raymond, a Jewish engineer, when World War II broke out and divided France. The couple, living in the Vichy zone, soon joined the Resistance movement in opposition to the Nazis and their collaborators.

     The Gestapo Hunters
Publisher: iUniverse.com
Author(s): G. C. Wakefield

In 1943, evil wears a long leather coat and red swastikas and spreads terror throughout the world as members of the Danish Resistance find themselves in a vortex of violence and espionage, constantly matching wits with the ruthless German Gestapo.

The Resistance convinces twenty-eight- year-old Danish war widow Margo Schoenemann to go undercover in a race to prevent the Nazis from obtaining vital atomic research from world-renowned atomic physicist Niels Bohr and to thwart the Gestapo's efforts to destroy the Danish underground. A waitress at a diner frequented by the Nazis, she can cultivate important contacts. To secure the future of Denmark, she works for the Gestapo by day, and the Resistance by night.

As the contest reaches its climax, the patriot's only hope rests in a fearless group of Allied airmen who would become known as the Gestapo Hunters. It falls to RAF officer Ted Grayson to overcome personal tragedy and lead a handful of daring airmen on a climatic raid to rescue Resistance leaders and to crush the Gestapo threat in Denmark.

The Gestapo Hunters embarks on a cataclysmic and daring retelling of true events at a time when the world was on fire and evil strutted across Europe.

     SS und Polizei: Myths and Lies of Hitler's SS and Police
Publisher: CreateSpace
Author(s): J Lee Ready

SS und POLIZEI: Myths and Lies of Hitler?s SS and Police looks at the SS and police chronologically by comparing the statements and stories and rumors created by the SS and police about themselves with the actual reality, and points out the glaring discrepancies. E.g. the Nazis believed that racial purity was of paramount importance, and they believed the SS was the vanguard of white supremacy, specifically German supremacy. But the reality was that the race restrictions for membership in the SS were ignored or bent with feeble excuses, such as the enlistment of soldiers from Asia and Africa. The police of the Third Reich have got to be the most non-stick body of men ever to squeeze through a series of horrific events and emerge smelling like a rose. Hitler?s regime was the police state par excellence, yet at the end of the war none of the Allies thought of blaming his police. The first part of the book explains the breeding ground of the SS philosophy and the importance of the police and Freikorps in shaping that philosophy. Then follows an explanation of how the SS was accepted into the government. This is followed by a description of the compartmentalizing of the SS into a myriad of departments often totally unrelated, such as an archaeological team, a psychiatric research section, a firing squad and a tank warfare school, to name but four. After this comes the story of how the Waffen SS grew in World War Two from a poor man?s army operating with hand me downs and despised by the German generals into an elite ?fire brigade? force that rescued those same generals on many an occasion. Within the narrative is an analysis of the interweaving between the police and the SS. This was so intricate that in some units SS and police insignia were both worn at the same time, and some members literally did not know if they were SS or police! This was further muddied when Himmler insisted on assigning duties without regard to the ?job description? of SS and police members, such as sending police regiments to the front line to battle Soviet tanks! In addition the book details that ?SS? did not necessarily mean ?Nazi?, nor did ?police? mean ?Nazi?. Many did not join the Nazi party, though it would have been easier for them if they had. Even some Gestapo personnel did not join the SS or the Nazi Party. The book ends with the disgusting tale of back-stabbing and betrayal, fanaticism and cowardice that marked the SS and police in the last months of the war.

     The Gestapo and German Society: Enforcing Racial Policy 1933-1945 (Clarendon Paperbacks)
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Author(s): Robert Gellately

How was the Gestapo able to detect the smallest signs of non-compliance with Nazi doctrines--especially "crimes" pertaining to the private spheres of social, family, and sexual life? How could the police enforce policies such as those designed to isolate Jews, or the foreign workers brought to Germany after 1939, with such apparent ease? Addressing these questions, Gellately argues that the key factor in the successful enforcement of Nazi racial policy was the willingness of German citizens to provide authorities with information about suspected "criminality." He demonstrates that without some degree of popular participation in the operation of institutions such as the Gestapo, the regime would have been seriously hampered in the "realization of the unthinkable," not only inside Germany but also in many of the occupied countries. Offering an intriguing examination of the everyday operations of the Gestapo and the product of extensive archival research, this incisive study surveys the experiences of areas across Germany, drawing out national, local, and regional implications.

     Inside the Gestapo: Hitler's Shadow Over the World
Publisher: Progressive Press
Author(s): Hansj�rgen Koehler

The fascinating first-hand account by a top defector of the ruthlessness, spy intrigues and curious personalities of the Third Reich. A unique and intimate record, full of surprises, sardonic wit and tragic endings. "Gestapo tactics:" Espionage, intrigue, and subversion. Cunning, cynical, and ruthless in exploiting every human weakness - and murdering anyone who got in the way. Koehler was a special agent working for the top Nazi cop Heydrich, head of the Gestapo, the Secret State Police. He earns his spurs as spying in France, disguised as a Trotskyist refugee, laying the groundwork for Germany to annex these provinces, and matching wits with French and Communist intelligence services. A keen observer and skilful narrator, Koehler reveals how the Gestapo secretly financed and supported the Rumanian Iron Guard and the Spanish Fascists. Then he is sent undercover to a concentration camp to finger a fugitive. What he sees there, and the flogging that puts him in hospital, sows the seeds of his plan to escape. His next mission is to recover "The Fatal File" - documents showing that Hitler's grandmother became pregnant while working as a maid in the Rothschild mansion in Vienna - the Austrian chancellor's secret blackmail weapon to hold Nazi Germany at bay. Heydrich advises Koehler to employ a beautiful Countess to inveigle the file - Austria is disarmed - and the Wehrmacht marches into Austria. Koehler is then promoted to the detail guarding Hitler's residence in the Alps, and gets his chance to escape to Switzerland, where he writes INSIDE THE GESTAPO. In 1943 the OSS commissioned a psychological profile of Hitler by Walter Langer, who drew on the revelations in this book. In 1972 Langer followed up with The Mind of Adolf Hitler: The Secret Wartime Report, which became a mass-market bestseller.

     The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS (Classic Military History)
Publisher: Penguin (Non-Classics)
Author(s): Heinz Zollin H�hne

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.

     The Search for Gestapo M�ller
Publisher: Leo Cooper
Author(s): Charles Whiting

The Gestapo is widely regarded as the most dreaded organization of the Third Reich, yet the very name of its commander has curiously been erased from the pages of history. As director of Section IV (Gestapo) of the Reich Security Headquarters, Heinrich Muller reported directly to Heinrich Himmler and Reinhard Heydrich.

At first operating only on German soil, Muller eventually exercised power over all of Occupied Europe. Assisted by a grimly talented staff, of which Adolf Eichmann became the most famous, Muller was eventually responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews, prisoners of war, and citizens of the various occupied countries. On April 29, 1945, Heinrich Muller walked out of Hitler's bunker and disappeared off the face of the earth. During the long Cold War that followed, the Americans and Russians could agree on very little, but they agreed on one thing: Heinrich Muller never existed.

Drawing on international contacts he developed during previous studies of Bormann, Peiper and Heydrich, Charles Whiting now takes on the greatest unsolved mystery of the Third Reich: The true role and subsequent whereabouts of Heinrich "Gestapo" Muller. The few experts who would admit to knowing his name offered contradictory assessments that sound suspiciously like a smokescreen. Muller is dead; he is alive; or he is not only alive but has written three volumes of memoirs. He is in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Moscow, Langley, or Damascus. He was working for the West all along, or the Russians, or he was exactly what he appeared to be. World War II veteran and tireless researcher Charles Whiting unravels at last a 50-year-old mystery and cover-up.

     Masquerade: The Incredible True Story of How George Soros' Father Outsmarted the Gestapo
Publisher: Arcade Publishing
Author(s): Tivadar Soros

?Life is beautiful,? begins Tividar Soros in this powerful and very personal memoir. ?But luck must be on your side.?

The Nazis came late to Hungary because, until early 1944, Germany and Hungary were allies. But when they did arrive, their orders were to put the ?Final Solution? into effect with deliberate speed. Soros, a Jewish lawyer in Budapest, secured fake Christian identities for himself, his wife, and his two sons following the German invasion of Hungary on March 19, 1944. In a narrative reminiscent of the great Primo Levi, Soros recounts his experiences with a beguiling humor, deep humanity, and a wisdom that is humbling.

Superbly translated by Humphrey Tonkin, Masquerade is a unique account of how one man managed not only to survive but to retain his integrity, compassion, family unity, and humor by ?dancing around death.? Like Klemperer?s Diary of the Nazi Years, this very personal, low-key testament of the Holocaust is a gripping depiction of ?normal? daily life under the Nazis?told by a man who triumphed by leading an ordinary life under extraordinary and terrifying circumstances.
