And a requisite one, both for those who are glad that hellishness is over and those ever alert for a present day redux. This book is one of the best researched that I have found about the most sinister groups to ever plague the world. It also covered organizational issues, Nazi rivalries, and of course their crimes.
This book was a very good read. Although the book sometimes bogs down in details about inpronoucible names and the dates jump around a bit, any previous reading about WWII and Nazi Germany helps to tie it all together.

The Gestapo: A History of Horror
It had decent coverage of Poland and the Soviet Union. Takes forever to get to the Gestapo, so you get not only how the Gestapo was formed but a whole background history of how Hitler and the National Socialists came to power, and what they did once they seized it, the Reichstag fire, Night of the Long Knives, etc.
Not a great intro to the topic, as the book meanders a bit, focusing at times on lw that, while not devoid of interest, are only marginally relevant to the Gestapo itself. A big book but such a great read.
It would take too long to go into detail. Jacqeus men have short memories, if the circumstances prove favorable, when times of trouble or the absence of solid safeguards permit it, the bloody tide could jistoria more be unleashed.
I wouldn’t recommend it for someone with only a passing interest in WWII history, its a bit intimidating. The present cabinet picks and law changes delague considered are the same roadmap to power as relayed in the book.

Industrialized death by people who gave you the Mercedes Benz, excelled in science and industry. The author traces the way the Gestapo slowly incorporated other departments of Hitler’s police and espionage units and became the monster it did.
The author’s musings in the final chapter are as insightful in as they were in or This book carefully examines the individual personalities of the NAZI main players and there are amazing facts to be learned which have scarcely been covered in the past. One can see shades of our own self-serving politicians in the descriptions. I’d recommend i How to accurately reflect on a writing of such sheer horror Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. A very informative and detailed book about Gestapo, the way it got to have so much control, the power struggle between Nazi leader and of course, the end of it all.
This book goes step by step into the terror and force that made it possible. And, this was prior to his monstrous development of the industrialized murder of millions. Jan 23, John McDonald rated it really liked it.

Interesting An in-depth look at the gestapo and their rise to power. Books like this should be a must read to prevent any society from allowing so much power to reside in the hands of so few.
It would be interesting to get jacquws author’s comparison. I feel it is important to read these types of books because we need to be reminded of the capacity some people have for evil in order to prevent such people from gaining the power the Nazis had.
