Der Untermensch: The Underman in German and English By SS Head Office
Paperback: $13.44
Prints in 3-5 business days
Possibly the Third Reich’s most famous, misquoted, and misrepresented publication ever. First issued in 1942 by the SS head office, The Underman has ever since been portrayed as... More > “anti-Slavic,” “anti-Russian,” and “anti-Jewish.” In fact only the third allegation has any truth to it. The “anti-Slavic” and “anti-Russian” claims are merely the product of postwar propaganda, reliant on the fact that almost no one would have the chance to actually read the publication for themselves. The reason for this was that after the war, the Allied occupying powers in Germany ordered all copies of the publication seized and burned. As a result, only a tiny handful were saved, and it is from one of these very few surviving copies, that this edition has been prepared. This high-quality reproduction is not a “photostat” but a fully digitally restored copy taken directly from a rare 1942 original. Contains a full German original and another with English text inserted in place of the German for comparison.< Less

More > Moonlight’ is about one of the least known and most effective of the Royal Air Force's bombing campaigns of the Second World War.

The Wellington and Liberator crews had to sow their mines (hence the slang term 'gardening') at low level on moonlit nights, running the gauntlet of night fighters, flak and balloon barrages. Their courage, skill and sacrifice are celebrated in what is an important account of a virtually unknown aspect of the war in the air.< Less

And the book challenges all Americans to overthrow our republican form of government, by engaging in a Campaign for Human Dignity, supported technically as that campaign would be through the Human Dignity Project,™ which would ensure increasing enfranchisement and not segregation.< Less
