Overview


Authors Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel, notable biographers of the World War II German leaders Joseph Goebbels and Herman Goring, delve into the life of one of the most sinister, clever, and successful of all the Nazi leaders: Heinrich Himmler. As the head of the feared SS, Himler supervised the extermination of millions. Here is the story of how a seemingly ordinary boy grew into an obsessive and superstitious man who ventured into herbalism, astrology, and homeopathic medicine before finally turning to the "science" of racial purity and the belief in the superiority of the Aryan people.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Review of Books
“Manvell and Fraenkel have produced...biographies of Goebbels, Goering, Himmler, and the men who tried to kill Hitler in 1944....To the best of my knowledge there are no better biographies in existence.”

This book is inspiring only because by reading this book do you only begin to realize the true responsibility everyone should play in not condemning a person due to color, gender, religion, or otherwise. History has shown us the ultimate sacrifice many souls made due to one man's vision for his country, and beliefs. Strangely enough this book also begins to show us that many whom regarded him to be a monster, also actually shows a human side to Himmler and the pain that his decisions inflicted upon him. This however does not excuse an individual for escaping his/her crimes. After reading this book I believe you will walk away more aware of the ultimate responsibility everyone should play towards one another and not be so quick to judge(Persecute/Exterminate).
