Sex under the Swastika is a journey through the dark secretive corridors of the Third Reich’s powerbase and it’s near-pathological sexual obsession with young women, sex, Satanism and the occult.

Based on interviews, eye-witness accounts and using newly revealed material from the sons and daughters of former SS officers who were part of Adolf Hitler and Reinhard Heydrich’s personal staff, we learn about the sexual conduct, affairs, scandals and fetishes of some of Hitler’s most trusted advocates, who used their positions of trust to execute their warped fantasies.

It reveals how many leading Nazi’s were actively involved in occult rituals and sexual practices, and how the abuse suffered by many young men and women was only permissible through the filtering down from the highest echelons of the regime, which was prepared to turn a blind eye. Learn about the exotic sex and drug-fuelled private cocktail parties of the Nazi political elite that spread far and wide into the society over which it presided.

An unapologetically provocative volume, Sex Under the Swastika is an exploration of the Third Reich’s darkest secrets, which left blood on the crisp white sheets of a nation and caused many to remain silent for decades after the death of National Socialist Germany. This unique work leaves the reader to make up his or her own mind as to the perverse, warped nature and the guilt and complicity of one of history’s most sexually exploitive and evil empires.

OMG! This book is so off the wall! Not because the writer is nuts, but the subject matter is so ..... OK, so how many of us actually wondered about this subject? I'm here to tell you that it wasn't something that I had thought of, but I'm so glad that I read this book. It answers so many questions about life during that time period in history. This book was interesting and I learned so much about this time and how it affected people that I never even thought to question.

This is a detailed, gruesome look behind Hitler's public persona and what really went on behind closed doorsl
It was amazing really to read about how many of Hitler's SS were involved in the occult and used their positions of power to execute their debauched fetishes, abusing the young women who were entrusted to them in the Reich's many programs.
I couldn't believe how Hitler's regime portrayed and preached a good wholesome life and that was completely the opposite of what was being practised by the elite in the regime. The twisted fantasies that played out, takiing advantage of the young German women, the abuse that fell from their hands, the abuse of power that went on was astronomical in proportion to the actual wholesome living being done by the elite officers of the regime.
What Hitler's regime proclaimed publicly, wholesome Aryan race, family, home life, and what really transpired were two very different worlds. One uplifting and happy, bright, the other dark, sinister and depraved, perverted.
This is a very interesting look into the sex lives and practices of a very corrupt regime.

This was a well-researched and enlightening non-fiction work that was organized and flowed really well... A dark chapter of world history made even darker in this little-known accounting of what took place. This is a sad and hard read but one that I think people should be made aware about.

NetGalley, Lauren Johnson

I enjoyed the 10.5 hours I spent reading this 276-page WWII-era history. Much of the source material comes from interviews, letters, and journals. This is the third book by Tim Heath that I have read. The other two were Hitler’s Housewives: German Women on the Home Front and Resistance Heroines in Nazi- and Russian-Occupied Austria. They have all been enjoyable books on the history of WWII. While I knew some of the material discussed in the book, there was much that was new to me. The book includes several photos relevant to the story from the war period. I like the chosen cover art. I give this book a rating of 4 out of 5.

NetGalley, John Purvis

An interesting book regarding the use of sex and the sexual history of Nazi Germany. The stories are informative and will hold your interest. The irony of how the government wanted the people to act compared to their behavior is amazing. A great book.

Well if you thought that the Nazis couldn't get any worse, you where wrong. An informative look into a seldom looked into area of history.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It’s quite remarkable. A lot of time and effort went into it. It’s very well written.

NetGalley, Lisa Houston

Based on interviews, eye-witness accounts and using newly revealed material from the sons and daughters of former SS officers who were part of Adolf Hitler and Reinhard Heydrich’s personal staff, we learn about the sexual conduct, affairs, scandals and fetishes of some of Hitler’s most trusted advocates, who used their positions of trust to execute their warped fantasies.

Smart nonfiction historical work that is both interesting and provocative. Absolutely enjoyed learning about this topic.

NetGalley, Lynn Beck

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars


This is a remarkable book compiled mostly from endless research and interviews with eyewitnesses and victims who lived through the horror of that time. It is not always an easy read and the sexual element, often described in great detail, is in my opinion an important part of the text if we are to fully understand the evil perpetrated by many on a defenceless few.

NetGalley, Rob Twinem

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Interesting amazing book, very well written and unusual topic.
I was shocked by some of the acts that happened but so glad read this book.

NetGalley, Karen Bull

Using interviews carried out by the author, eye-witness accounts and memories of the children of former SS officers this tells the real tales of the sexual abuse, affairs and scandals of some of Hitler's most trusted advocates who carried out their warped fantasies using their position of trust and power.

It shows just how widespread the abuse was and how the highest Nazi was able to turn a blind eye to what was going on.

Unapologetically unfiltered this look into the Third Reich's deepest secrets allows the reader to make up their own mind on the guilt and complicity of Hitler's evil empire.

What an incredibly engrossing read! I consider myself well-versed in WWII history, but from this book I learned so many things I had not come across before! The level of detail and historical research this author undertook was impressive and he showed great attention to detail. This read was unputdownable and I will be purchasing this in print. Anyone who reads this will be getting a unique inside look into the madness that was the upper echelons of the Nazi elite. I highly recommend this to all WWII history buffs who want to learn more and are tired of the same old stories.
