View all copies of this ISBN edition:

U.S. Intelligence and the Nazis discusses hundreds of the 8 million-plus documents released under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act by the CIA, FBI, NSA, Army, State Department, and other U.S. agencies. This book contains a great deal of new information about the world of intelligence, especially concerning the postwar use of war criminals by U.S. intelligence organizations. It also sheds new light on Holocaust issues, showing, for example, that the Allies had knowledge of the genocide earlier than historians previously believed. By using these newly released documents to refine what was previously understood about World War II, the Holocaust, and intelligence activities during and after the war, the authors demonstrate the historical, cultural, and moral importance of the declassified information.

Book Description:

This book is a direct result of the 1998 Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act. Drawing upon many documents declassified under this law, the authors demonstrate what US intelligence agencies learned about Nazi crimes during World War II and about the nature of Nazi intelligence agencies' role in the Holocaust. At a time when intelligence successes and failures are at the center of public discussion, U.S. Intelligence and the Nazis also provides an unprecedented inside look at how intelligence agencies function during war and peacetime.
