    Excellent research that shows how the government that took the place of the United States after the US Civil War eventually absorbed the leaders of Nazi Germany by smuggling key social, political and weapon scientists along with various high ranking military officials to the US and whitewashing their history so as to bolster the standing of the US against its inevitable clash with the Soviet Union, who interestingly enough did the same as the US but didn't bother to lie to its citizens as that w Excellent research that shows how the government that took the place of the United States after the US Civil War eventually absorbed the leaders of Nazi Germany by smuggling key social, political and weapon scientists along with various high ranking military officials to the US and whitewashing their history so as to bolster the standing of the US against its inevitable clash with the Soviet Union, who interestingly enough did the same as the US but didn't bother to lie to its citizens as that was simply Soviet modus operandi. The fact is made especially clear that not only is the contemporary government that refers to itself as the "United States" a violent antagonist of free men everywhere, but that it also envied and outfitted itself with Nazi ideology to the point where the modern "United States" is simply the marriage between Nazi Germany and the totalitarian central government tyrants of Lincoln's bastardized "United States", obviously an easy marriage once history is put into context.

    This in one of the first histories to cover the exploitation of Wernher von Braun and his "rocket team" that had served Hitler and produced the V2 ballistic rockets using --and abusing-- slave labor. The exploitation was carried out, not by "intelligence officers, " but by U.S. Ordnance teams determined to employ the Germans be they former SS officers, card-carrying Nazis, even possible war criminals.

In spite of a lack of assistance from the military, Lasby has produced an excellent history of "Operation Paperclip" and led the way to many excellent histories that came later

    Fascinating look behind the scenes at post-WWII Military Intelligence operations to secure the services of the scientists formerly employed by Germany or who had escaped Germany. Although written as nonfiction, at times the material seems like the fiction from some of the better writers of novels set in this venue.
