Highly disappointed with this book. Author spends most of his time quoting or paraphrasing, then contradicting, a number of sources on possible Nazi.
how to hold a book open
For the first time this secret history of the Third Reich reveals the full extent of Hitler's obsession with the occult and the Nazis' fascination with symbols of arcane power. This book explains how an ill-educated, unbalanced WWI veteran and ex-vagrant mesmerized an entire nation, why the German people venerated their Fuhrer and how he exercised his power so they willingly followed him to the abyss of self-destruction. The author draws extensively on secret Nazi documents and the private diaries and correspondence of Hitler's satanic mentors as well as those of the members of his inner circle to reveal that Nazi ideology was rooted in occultism.
