‘There are no better biographies of Goering, Goebbels and Himmler in existence.’ New York Review of Books

Heinrich Himmler was the commander of the SS, and as founder and officer-in-charge of the Nazi concentration camps and the Einsatzgruppen death squads, he was responsible for implementing the extermination of millions of people. By the time he died he was the second-most powerful man in Germany and regarded himself as Hitler's natural successor, going so far as to attempt to negotiate independent peace with the Allies.

Based on US documents handed over to the German Federal Archives and the testimonies of Himmler's family and staff, this book examines how a seemingly ordinary boy grew into an obsessive and superstitious man who ventured into herbalism and astrology before finally turning to the ‘science’ of racial purity and the belief in the superiority of the Aryan race.

Filled with insights into Himmler’s private life, activities and beliefs, this is an important study of one of the most sinister figures of World War II.

A detailed review of the life of Heinrich Himmler and an analysis of the horrors he encouraged and oversaw. This new book looks closely at one of the most notorious individuals of recent history – Very Highly Recommended.
