From Nazi spymasters in the post-war German intelligence services to Nazi emigres in South America, it describes how a well-organized underground network kept memories of the Third Reich alive thoughout the Cold War. And while European Nazis necessarily kept a low profile, American groups such as the Holocaust-denying Liberty Lobby openly promoted the fascist agenda. When the Berlin Wall fell, fascism in Europe, dormant for 45 years, began making headlines again. German skinheads, many inspired by neo-Nazi propaganda originating in the US, terrorized minorities and then, through the Oklahoma City bombing, America's own militia movement served notice that fascist extremism was alive and well on both sides of the Atlantic.Read Less

Publishers Weekly, 1997-06-09 After the Berlin Wall came down, images of emancipated Germans were soon replaced by footage of neo-Nazi skinheads torching immigrant hostels while raising their arms in Hitlerian salute. It appeared that the beast of fascism, thought to have been dead for almost half a century, had come back to life. Through meticulous research and more than 100 interviews, Lee (Acid Dreams) reveals that the beast only catnapped after WWII. Starting with the failed assassination attempt on the F?hrer in July 1944, Lee traces the splinter groups, fascist leaders and political movements that formed a complex network of ratlines and spy webs enabling expatriate Nazis to build fortunes and mold fledgling extremists. Lee skillfully forms his material into a coherent, often chilling account that opens with the tale of Otto Skorzeny, the ex-Nazi who became a major figure in Cold War espionage. The closing exploration of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and America's militia movement casts new light on seemingly overexposed topics and helps to illuminate the fascist agendas of shadowy organizations in the U.S. such as the Holocaust-denying Liberty Lobby. This compelling, intelligent investigation, which reads more like a thriller than a history lesson, contributes much toward understanding the politics of hatred. Photos not seen by PW.
