Product Description

The atrocities committed by the Nazis in World War II horrified the world and gave rise to speculation, rumour and distortion. This book is intended to provide the reader with a truthful and accurate account of many of these German war crimes. It has been compiled with evidence and documents from war-crime trials, and from statements made by eye-witnesses to war-crime investigation committees. This book acts as an all-too-necessary reminder of the outrages perpetrated in the name of nationalism in the ostensibly 'civilized' twentieth century.

Written over fifty years ago this book is still the definitive account of the barbarism of the Nazi regime. A harrowing read, it documents the war crimes that were committed following the state's support and encouragement of racial hatred and the creed of the Master Race. As Edmund Burke wrote : "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing".
