More About This Textbook

Overview

A sensational book documenting the history of the former SS-School House Wewelsburg!

The Wewelsburg Castle was chosen to be the training center for spiritual enlightenment of the Führer's elite Imperial Guard, the SS.

Heinrich Himmler, appointed by Adolf Hitler as Reichsführer-SS, became responsible for researching and documenting centuries of Germanic culture, as well as defining the ideology of the Black Corps.

This pictorial book also reveals captivating parallels between the phenomena of the Wewelsburg and the legendary King Arthur's Camelot.

  • Over 200 b/w photographs, plus numerous illustrations and documents, all available for the first time in an English-language publication;
  • Plus, an exclusive 16-page color section with 31 photographs, including a rare, never-before seen, full page of Heinrich Himmler's death mask;
  • Also, a fold-out showing a unique design of the "Twelve Knights of the Round Table";
  • A complete story of the castle's history, architecture, renovation and décor, administration, wartime fate, secrets, and extraordinary fascination that appeals to thousands of visitors each year;
  • Behold the coming of a National Socialist Arthurian Court, the sword Excalibur, Sir Lancelot, and Merlin;
  • Includes an Index, Glossary, Reference Notes, and informative appendices about the structure of the SS;
  • 256 pages, hard-bound with dust-jacket, 8 ½" x 11" format;
  • Read the facts about what really occurred at the Wewelsburg based on 20+ years of research by Stuart Russell, historian, author, filmmaker, and contributor to numerous topic-related books, now with a deeper analysis in English with Stephen Cook, artist, historian, author and publisher;
  • Learn of Germany's cultural reawakening, Weltanschauung, the role of the Christian Church, academic studies, scientific evidence, and the personalities involved;
  • A "MUST-HAVE" for military historians, collectors, philosophers, theologians and artists.

    The Quest for The Holy Grail

    This is a very good in-depth book that covers the religous background of the Nazi Party. It not only covers the religous background but what they believed in, the ceremonies that they performed. It is one of the best books I have read yet about the Third Reich it is not well known how evil, cruel, and crazy these Nazi's were.
