The History of the Gestapo [INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR TO FRITZ LANG]
London: Macdonald, 1966. Second edition. Hardcover. g to vg. Octavo (8 3/4 x 6"). X, 406pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over red cloth, with black lettering to spine. Half-title inscribed and signed by the author to German filmmaker Fritz Lang: "À Fritz Lang, le Maitre qui fut l'un des premiers à montrer le vrai visage du Nazisme dans ces chefs d'oeuvre que sont "Le Docteur Mabuse" et "M, le Maudit." Avec toute l'admiration que m'inspire son oeuvre, Tres Cordialement, Delarue." (Translation: 'To Fritz Lang, the Master who was one of the first to show the true face of Nazism in these masterpieces that are "Doctor Mabuse" and "M." With all my admiration, Very Cordially, Delarue'). From 1933 to 1945, the Gestapo was Nazi Germany's chief instrument of counter-espionage, political suppression, and terror. Jacques Delarue, a saboteur arrested by the Nazis in occupied France, chronicles how the land of Beethoven elevated sadism to a fine art. "The History of the Gestapo" draws upon Delarue's interviews with ex-Gestapo agents to deliver a multi-layered history of the force whose work included killing student resisters, establishing Aryan eugenic unions, and implementing the Final Solution. This is a probing look at the Gestapo and the fanatics and megalomaniacs who made it such a successful and heinous organization - Barbie, Eichmann, Himmler, Heydrich, Müller. The Gestapo's notorious reign led to the murder of millions. "The History of the Gestapo" is an important documentation of what they did and how they did it. Dust-jacket rubbed and partly chipped at head of spine, with closed tears at upper margin of front and back covers. DJ in overall good- to good, binding and interior in very good condition.
