2.0 out of 5 stars Himmler's Crusade
The word Crusade infers to me the combination of effort of hundreds, if not thousands of individuals to a common purpose -for example to rid the World of Malaria or Aids could become a modern day crusade.

The Book entitled 'Himmler's Crusade' appears to be nothing of the sort. Yes, Himmler at one time was very interested in race research and encouraged various...

4.0 out of 5 stars Germany and the search for the master race, 19 July 2010

(REAL NAME)   
we all know the evils committed by Nazi Germany in the name of Racial purity and lieberstraum this book looks at a part of the mythology behind the third Reich the belief in the Aryan ideal it's roots and searching for this "truth" were people who believed that the German race was descended from these Aryan super beings not the archetypal Nazi thugs but scientist who hitched their stars to the party and Hitler. Himmler believed in the old Norse gods and the occult He supported the psuedo sciences used by the Nazis to justify the slaughter of millions.
this book details an expedition financed by Nazi Germany to find the roots of the Aryan race in Tibet measuring bone structure looking for clues to the birth place of the Aryans
A worrying book in that you can see that these expeditions could be spun by politicians to look like adventures, a search for scientific truth and the evidence gathered and interpreted by experts to support policy without question being allowed or anyone who does question being beaten down by the so called evidence
an interesting book but not light reading and not entertaining in the sense of amusement

2.0 out of 5 stars Himmler's Crusade, 17 Jun. 2007
The word Crusade infers to me the combination of effort of hundreds, if not thousands of individuals to a common purpose -for example to rid the World of Malaria or Aids could become a modern day crusade.

The Book entitled 'Himmler's Crusade' appears to be nothing of the sort. Yes, Himmler at one time was very interested in race research and encouraged various Doctors and other Scientists in projects, as the book describes. However, although Himmler was in a position to authorise and facilitate such research, it was not his prime concern for the War years that his activities are chiefly known for. Thus the expeditions of a few Germans to Tibet around 1938 is hardly part of a Crusade

The involvement of Himmler in the story is somewhat peripheral - a bit like writing a book indicating Adolf Hitler had a great interest in German postage stamps -because after he came to power, they bore his image.

This is a book that describes those expeditions to Tibet pre -war and some of the research made during the war on the bodies of dead concentration inmates that had been passed to medical institutes. It is factual and descriptive - but may disappoint some readers who are expecting some Himmler revelation.
