Believe and Destroy: Intellectuals in the SS War Machine

Ingrao, Christian

Cambridge, UK: Polity, 2013. 399pp. Based on extensive archival research, Christian Ingrao tells the gripping story of children of the Great War, focusing on the networks of fellow activists, academics and friends in which they moved, studying the way in which they envisaged war and the world of enemies which, in their view, threatened them. The mechanisms of their political commitment are revealed, and their roles in Nazism and mass murder. Thanks to this pioneering study, we can now understand how these men came to believe what they did, and how these beliefs became so destructive. The history of Nazism, shows Ingrao, is also a history of beliefs in which a powerful military machine was interwoven with personal experiences, fervour, anguish, utopia and cruelty. Clean.
