This is an auction for HIMMLER'S CRUSADE by Christopher Hale.


"HIMMLER'S CRUSADE is the story of a trek across an exotic land– and the sinister consequences. It was an SS mission led by two complex individuals – one who was using the Nazis to pursue his own ends, and one so committed to Nazism that afterward he conducted racial experiments in Auschwitz. HIMMLER'S CRUSADE traces the 1938 Nazi expedition through British India to the sacred mountains of Tibet in search of the remnants of the Aryan people, the lost master race. Based on previously unused sources, this book reveals the mission – a pet project of Heinrich Himmler - to be the result of both a bizarre historical fantasy and a strategy to provoke insurgency in British India. Providing glimpses into Himmler's SS stronghold, it sheds new light on the occult component of the racial theories that obsessed Himmler and his fellow Nazis."

"FIVE STARS!! This is a brilliant and incredibly well researched book analyzing a little known but important part of Nazi history. I picked it because it received a stellar review by Michael Burleigh, an authority on the Third Reich. Immediately, I was entranced by every aspect of Hale's account of an SS-sponsored expedition to Tibet in 1938-39. Hale goes way beyond doing a comprehensive book study of the subject. He actually conducted his own expedition to Tibet, retracing the steps that the SS-sponsored expedition leaders took and interviewing individuals who were either part of the expedition or who were associated with it."
