It's not an easy read, but you will be wiser for it

If you had an established view, this book will give you a completely different view of the curse of Nazi Germany. It's chilling in it's simplicity, from the aspect of your Dad is the SS soldier at the heart of the book. Forget the high level German economics, politics, etc this is about the feet on the ground effect of being a family member. In many ways I found this book more disturbing than many I have read in my studies. The Nazi machine became very real and in the moment. The Author was born in 1951, this is a current document and should be part of any reading if you want an insight into the men who volunteered and served in the extreme end of the Nazi machine. Could it happen again, it has Cambodia, Yugoslavia etc, but could it happen here, now? I now think yes. We need to open our eyes to this world and be prepared to see this curse early. It's still out there today. It's not an easy read, but you will be wiser for it.
