Actual articles from the notorious sensationalist journal that was a forerunner to the scandal sheets and tabloids of today: “Ridiculous alt-history fun” (Booklist).

As the Allied armies closed in on Berlin, the Nazi high command scrambled to escape their shattered city. On May 1, 1945, reports went out that Adolf Hitler and his mistress, Eva Braun, committed suicide in an underground bunker—but their bodies were never found. In this landmark exposé by the legendary National Police Gazette, the truth is finally told. As peace fell across Europe, two U-Boats made mad dashes for Argentina, remaining underwater for weeks at a time to evade detection. In their incredible journeys lies the shocking secret of how the greatest mass murderer in history escaped punishment for his crimes.
 
In the aftermath of World War II, the Police Gazette ruthlessly investigated any rumor of Hitler’s survival in South America. Hitler Is Alive! is a true epic of twentieth-century sensationalism.

About the Author:

Steven A. Westlake is the editor of the revitalized National Police Gazette. The son of Donald E. Westlake, he studied creative writing at the University of Miami and worked as a reporter and businessman before founding the reborn Police Gazette in 2006. Dedicated to preserving the lurid legacy of the legendary publication, Westlake’s magazine is published by his alter ego, William A. Mays, and continues to reprint the best material from the pioneering tabloid, as well as cover modern-day news in the irresistible Police Gazette style.

Review:

Praise for the National Police Gazette
“[The Police Gazette uncovered] the low life that existed just slightly below the veneer of Victorian respectability.” —Tom Wolfe
 
“The most popular magazine in the country . . . [the Police Gazette] was what the sweaty, grimy, wash-on-Saturday-night type of a guy used to read, and it called a spade a spade.” —Gene Smith, editor of the collected Police Gazette
 
“The Bible of the barbershop.” —The New York Times
 
“Lewd and lascivious.” —Frank C. Walker, United States Postmaster General (1940–45)
 

Founded in 1845, the National Police Gazette was a pioneering magazine dedicated to sport, sin, scandal, and crime. From 1877 to 1922, its editor was Richard Kyle Fox, whose ironic—and sometimes fictional—treatment of the news was a welcome departure from the stuffy tone of the mainstream press. In a time when boxing was illegal, the Police Gazette covered it like a legitimate sport, paving the way for its acceptance at the heart of American sporting life. The Police Gazette continued publication until 1977, and never lost its sense of lurid good fun.
