From Library Journal:

In this biography of Heinrich Himmler, creator of the SS and thoroughgoing villain, the author makes much of Himmler's interest in the occult and his attempts to re-create a somewhat bizarre version of the pre-Christian Teutonic religion. Some readers may be interested in the accounts of archaeologists funded by the Ahnenerbe (the Nazi historical research bureau) to establish a foundation for Nazi mythology and institutionalize the creed of Aryan superiority. Indiana Jones, this is not, but another take on Nazi leaders, somewhat sensationalized. Not enough meat for serious World War II students, but it may be popular among general readers.-Edwin B.
