Hitler's Shadow War: The Holocaust and World War II

by

Hitler's Shadow War: The Holocaust and World War II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many historians view the Holocaust as a consequence or "by-product" of the horrific brutality that occurred in World War II. Hitler's Shadow War, however, contends just the opposite: that the war was a direct result, not the cause, of Hitler's racial persecution and genocidal program. When Nazis confiscated Jewish bank accounts and businesses, for example, those assets were used to finance Germany's rearmament. Toward the end of the war, when Germany desperately needed trains for the war effort, Hitler instead used the railroads to ship Jews to their death, at great expense to the military. World War II acted as a veil behind which Hitler implemented his plans for systematic mass murder.

Hitler's Shadow War, a distillation of decades of study, examines the entire history of Hitler's racial war, including the murderous role of the Wehrmacht in the extermination of Jews; Jewish resistance; and the role of German citizens as both enablers and witnesses.

Book News Annotation:

McKale (humanities, Clemson U.) has written widely about Germany and the Nazi Party. Here he surveys the history of the Holocaust to show how the concept of racial war strongly influenced Hitler's thinking and actions before and after World War II, and how he believed the Holocaust and the war were closely connected.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Historian McKale challenges the view that the Holocaust was the result of the violence of World War II, arguing that genocide was Hitler's main objective, and that he used the war in Europe to veil his actions.
