America’s Recruitment of Nazis and its Effects on the Cold War
by Christopher Simpson
1988, Weidenfeld & Nicolson
Illustrated, 398 pages.
The CIA, the State Department, and U.S. Army intelligence each created special programs for the specific purpose of bringing selected former Nazis and collaborators to the United States. . . . The government employed these men and women for their expertise in propaganda and psychological warfare, for work in American laboratories, and even as special guerrilla troops for deployment inside the USSR in the midst of a nuclear war. . . . Hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of such recruits were SS veterans; some had been officers of the bloody Sicherheitsdienst (SD), the Nazi party’s security service. [From Blowback]
