Frank McDonough, The Gestapo

Historian Dagmar Herzog reviews Norman Ohler's, Blitzed: Drugs in the Third Reich, at today's New York Times book review. (She's highly critical, arguing that the focus on drug abuse throughout the regime serves as an excuse and distraction for the Nazis' larger crimes).

Also, at Thomas Anthony DiMaggio's letter to the book review editor, is the citation for Frank McDonough's, The Gestapo: The Myth and Reality of Hitler's Secret Police, which I didn't know of.

That reminds me of the classic book, from Heinz Höhne, The Order of the Death's Head: The Story of Hitler's SS.
