Product Description

Product Description

“I vow to you, Adolf Hitler, as Führer and chancellor of the German Reich loyalty and bravery. I vow to you and to the leaders that you set for me, absolute allegiance until death. So help me God!”
The SS Oath of Loyalty – words that became the very death sentence for millions of Jews and Germans alike. Six decades later, we still ask ourselves why and how did it happen? "The Angel of Auschwitz", a tragic epic of historical fiction, explores these inquiries through the eyes of an unlikely antagonist-turned-protagonist – the Nazi soldier.

"The Angel of Auschwitz" chronicles the life of Wolfgang Bremmer, an adolescent boy from the hills of Hamburg during the Nazi occupation of Germany. As a Hitler Youth, Wolfgang is captivated by the prowess of the Nazis and thrust into the ideologies of Adolf Hitler. With an adoration for the new Fűhrer and the Third Reich, Wolfgang enlists as a young man in the SS-Death’s Head Division, the gatekeepers of the regime’s most lethal concentration camp, Dachau. It is here he is introduced to Theodor Eicke’s “School of Violence” and becomes one of the most ruthless guards the SS has ever seen. After joining Hitler’s Mobile Killing Units, he participates in the invasion of Poland and the evacuation and extermination of its Jewish inhabitants. Wolfgang is the ideal Nazi warrior: vicious, ruthless, and entirely intolerant.

But evil erodes even the hardest of hearts and Wolfgang grows weary in the midst of all the death and destruction. His conscience begins to return and with that a gnawing guilt for what he and his fellow Germans have done and are about to do. But with the fear of punishment for treason, Wolfgang is trapped in the cyclone of violence. That is, until he is promoted as a guard at the Reich’s most sophisticated concentration camp, Auschwitz. In the belly of such a beast as Auschwitz, Wolfgang discovers a secret that will not only save his own life and salvation, but the lives of so many prisoners as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars The angel of auschwitz 19 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rubbish rubbish rubbish far too short. Not enough intrigue. Far too quick to come to the conclusion. Some of the dialogue is too modern to give this woeful tale credence.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly researched with US slang 31 May 2013
By Lemmy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got 3/4 of the way through and found the book filled with typos and mistakes, corporals became colonels, US slang like 'chow' was used by the Hitler Youth, much gratuitous violence, the SS wore black uniforms after 1939. The story was too far fetched and In the end I gave up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brutal! 14 Jun 2014
By Alan G
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't read this if you are squeamish at t the descriptions of the treatment of men and women in these camps. However the description is integral to what happens as the book develops. The very end confused me a little but I intend to re-read the last chapter or two. I would commend it to anyone interested in WWII history.

4.0 out of 5 stars brutally realistic and thought provoking 10 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although a work of fiction it clearly showed the way many nazis were so easily indoctrinated. One almost began to feel some understanding if not forgiveness for their actions. Very disturbing read.
