275pp, photo section amidships, less than 500g to post. Traces the history of the Gestapo from its beginnings in the 1930s to its final acts of mass murder in the last days of the war, detailing the organization's horrific crimes of torture and genocide which were revealed at Nuremberg. review >> This is a deep and prescient book. EC takes a more personal stance towards his subject than is the fashion nowadays. EC writes a study of the rise, fall and organization of the Gestapo. He gives enough detail to horrify but not so much as to get lost in a cloud of prurience. The meticulous creation of evil gives one a sense of numbed unreality. The Gestapo is so placid and accountant-like in its workaday routine. Banality of evil indeed. Faults? dj has 5mm closed tear.
