Whatever happened to the Nazis after World War II? While the Nuremberg trials saw key party members prosecuted, it was impossible to imprison every German who had supported the Third Reich. This is the story of what happened to the Nazis who escaped justice. These cases include: • The Nazis who ran away to South America and the Nazi hunters who tracked them down • 'Useful' Nazis such as Wernher von Braun who became the rocket scientists for other nations • Those who joined the popular, nostalgia-based German Veterans Associations, who loved to keep Nazi traditions alive • The story of Klaus Barbie, the infamous Butcher of Lyon, who became a paid informant to both the US and West German government This fascinating illustrated history studies how East and West Germany recovered from the rampant Nazism of the Second World War, and the individuals who slipped through the net.

When originally published in 1991, this book was the first systematic, detailed evaluation of the social structure of the Nazi Party in several regions of Germany during its so-called Kampfzeit phase. Based on extensive archival material, much of it left untouched since the end of the war until Detlef Mühlberger uncovered it, the book demonstrates that the Nazi Party and its major auxiliaries, the SA and the SS mobilized support which was remarkably heterogeneous in social terms. The author reveals that in addition to followers from the middle and upper social classes the Nazi Party enjoyed strong support among the lower class and it was indeed, as it claimed to be a people’s party, or Volkspartei.

The Death of DemocracyThe Death of Democracy



How did a democratic government allow Adolf Hitler to seize power? In The Death of Democracy, Benjamin Carter Hett answers these questions, and the story he tells has disturbing resonances for our own time.

A riveting account of how the Nazi Party came to power and how the failures of the Weimar Republic and the shortsightedness of German politicians allowed it to happen. Why did democracy fall apart so quickly and completely in Germany in the 1930s? How did a democratic government allow Adolf Hitler to seize power? In The Death of Democracy, Benjamin Carter Hett answers these questions, and the story he tells has disturbing resonances for our own time. To say that Hitler was elected is too simple. He would never have come to power if Germany’s leading politicians had not responded to a spate of populist insurgencies by trying to co-opt him, a strategy that backed them into a corner from which the only way out was to bring the Nazis in. Hett lays bare the misguided confidence of conservative politicians who believed that Hitler and his followers would willingly support them, not recognizing that their efforts to use the Nazis actually played into Hitler’s hands. They had willingly given him the tools to turn Germany into a vicious dictatorship. Benjamin Carter Hett is a leading scholar of twentieth-century Germany and a gifted storyteller whose portraits of these feckless politicians show how fragile democracy can be when those in power do not respect it. He offers a powerful lesson for today, when democracy once again finds itself embattled and the siren song of strongmen sounds ever louder.

This book is not about Donald Trump. It’s about his diehard followers. How could they so zealously and single-mindedly revere someone whom we see as monumentally unfit for his job? How is it that so many people were beguiled by a vision of hate and discord, of intolerance and violence, of authoritarianism and lawlessness, of coarseness and mendacity, and of simple basic meanness? In light of all Trump’s transgressions, listed in Chapter One from “a” to “z,” how is it that people remained so devoted to this man, that they would professedly “die for him”? That is the subject of this book. Several years ago, I published Violence and Religious Commitment: Implications of Jim Jones’s People’s Temple Movement. Contributors to that book include leading experts in the field of extremist cults. Now, I bring their expertise to bear in a demographical, sociological, and psychological analysis of what I term the “American Hitler” and his bewildering cult of followers.

This is the personal account of a Luftwaffe aide always at HitlerÕs side from 1937 until the last days in Berlin, now published for the first time in English. Nicolaus von Below was a 29-year-old pilot when Goering selected him for the position of HitlerÕs Luftwaffe adjutant. He was with Hitler at every stage as the Second World War unfolded. His observations tell of HitlerÕs responses to momentous events as well as military decisions and policy-making at FŸhrer Headquarters. This is a superb source describing life in HitlerÕs inner circle, relied upon on by Gitta Sereny in her biography of Albert Speer. He provides fascinating insight into how Hitler planned the invasions of Poland and Russia, what he thought of Britain and America, why he placed his faith in the V-1 and V-2 projects, how others dealt with him, and much more. Von Below was present at the assassination attempt in July 1944, and records the effect on Hitler and his followers. Von Below was the last of HitlerÕs close military entourage to emerge from the bunker alive. His frank memoir will appeal to anyone interested in how Hitler ran his war. He was denounced to the British in 1946 and imprisoned as a material witness at Nuremberg, until being discharged in 1947.

This book identifies the main factors by which the Nazi movement rose to power and measures their relative importance. It discusses Hitler's leadership, the strategy of party tacticians, and the favorable circumstances of popular economic and social discontent. Based on more than 600 autobiographies obtained from followers of Hitler, The Nazi Movement explains the social bases of Nazism and why it was so appealing. Theodore Abel argues that no movement can succeed unless its adherents are motivated by deep, persistent, and widespread discontent with a societal status quo. A movement must also set forth an inspiring goal based upon deeply rooted popular sentiments. Finally, a successful movement must have a charismatic leader with organized, dedicated followers. Abel's analysis of the Depression, inflation, and right- and left-wing rioting and activities, gives theoretical depth to his earlier study of Nazi Party member's political biographies. Originally published in 1938,The Nazi Movement remains at the heart of current debates on fascism and other nationalist/authoritarian movements. This book is a significant theoretical elaboration of Abel's earlier work, in which he interviewed ordinary Germans and discussed Nazism with them. Abel's work helps us understand why and how Hitler and his Nationalist Socialist party took root among ordinary middle and working class German people. In so doing, he takes us beyond those who focused on ideological dogmas that presented Nazism as a ruling class movement at one end and a vehicle for proletarian disaffection at the other.
