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]
