A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS

The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS - Heinz Höhne, Richard Barry Riveting subject matter (5-star) but the book is either very poorly written (2-star) in a disjointed journalistic style or poorly translated or both. See what happens when an entire civilized country goes berserk and the wildest conspiracy theory you could ever come up with turns out to be true.What could be more interesting than Nazi death squads, storm troopers, death camps, medical experiments, entire Death's Head army divisions not even under the control of the military? How could they avoid creeping themselves out?So next time you say it can't happen here, host a tea party.
