First published in 1949, this is
'A Statement of Evidence Written in 1940'. Having returned
home from military service following the fall of France,
Bloch wrote this manuscript to analyse the military faiures
he had witnessed. He concluded that the immediate cause of
the disaster was the utter incompetence of the French High
command. Having worked with the Resistance since 1942, he
was arrested by the Vichy police in March, 1944. They handed
him over to the Gestapo who tortured and shot him.
Lucas's analysis of German
Special Forces operations in WWII. Undercover and other
special operations, conceived and executed with ruthless
thoroughness, won the Germans some stunning victories
against all odds. Specially trained SS agents-provocateurs
laid the ground for the German invasions of Czechoslovakia
and Poland. This book tells the complete story, including
the Brandenburgers, the the navy's K-Men, the
SS-Kommando-GB, and the children of the Werewolves and the
Hitler Youth, trained in murderous partisan warfare.
