Description

The Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2018)

Confronting Nazi evil is the subject of the latest installment in the mega-bestselling Killing series

As the true horrors of the Third Reich began to be exposed immediately after World War II, the Nazi war criminals who committed genocide went on the run. A few were swiftly caught, including the notorious SS leader, Heinrich Himmler. Others, however, evaded capture through a sophisticated Nazi organization designed to hide them. Among those war criminals were Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death” who performed hideous medical experiments at Auschwitz; Martin Bormann, Hitler’s brutal personal secretary; Klaus Barbie, the cruel "Butcher of Lyon"; and perhaps the most awful Nazi of all: Adolf Eichmann.

Killing the SS is the epic saga of the espionage and daring waged by self-styled "Nazi hunters." This determined and disparate group included a French husband and wife team, an American lawyer who served in the army on D-Day, a German prosecutor who had signed an oath to the Nazi Party, Israeli Mossad agents, and a death camp survivor. Over decades, these men and women scoured the world, tracking down the SS fugitives and bringing them to justice, which often meant death.

Written in the fast-paced style of the Killing series, Killing the SS will educate and stun the reader.

The final chapter is truly shocking.

    I have enjoyed almost all of the “Killing . . .” Books. This one, however, is based on hear-say, rumor, and propaganda. Some of the stories — such as the actions of the dogs at the women’s camp — sound like a bad movie script, made up. The book is only fair, not up to the “Killing . . .” Standards.

    Book begins on page 33 and ends at 365, has many pages of filler. No revelations, somewhat disjointed, and just reiterates known information. A poor addition to what has been a very good series that’s now progressively descending into poor work. Save your money.

    A terrific and most necessary read. O’Reilly, again, has researched and put together critical historical information in a way that is at once riveting, informative, educational and enjoyable. This book should be a must read in high school history class....but it will not be. Young people of today are being taught by omission, to think of the world as a potential global fantasyland. That a strong America is a deterrent from that fairy tale. They are being led to believe evil of the nature outlined in this book no longer exists; and in fact, our clueless youth don’t understand that this sort of evil ever existed and is in fact ready to raise its ugly head wherever weak and naive people close their eyes and ears. This book is so very important as it lays out how these monsters managed to gain control and what they were willing to do to keep it. And shamefully how western countries refused to see and act on the problem until six million perished and even then did not totally commit to eradication of anti semitism even today.

    This latest in the “killing series” is a very easy read even though the subject matter is disturbing. The authors style, detailing the location and time at the beginning of each chapter, puts the reader in an “at the moment” state which is where one wants to be when absorbing the information. I’ve read all the “killing” books and would rank this one somewhere mid-pack. A T Russo Clifton Park, New York

    Thank you for continuing the Killing series. In today’s world I find the information in this book to be vital to all Americans. History must not be repeated. Again, thank you for this great book. I read it in two sittings. Brian B
