Nazis in the Woodpile: Hitler’s Plot for Essential Raw Material
Submitter: This book was weeded from [a Canadian university library] by me a few years ago. [This university] started out as an agricultural college in 1874. No doubt this book was acquired for its insights into forestry practices. Amazing that it was published during the war, in 1942. I haven’t read past the first page, but even this page has a sentence or two worth citing:
“[The author] rips the green forester’s uniform off Hermann Goering, jolly master of the hunt, and shows him to be a thieving, greedy plotter, who for years has been trying to steal the contents of every peasant’s woodshed in Europe.”
Understatement of the century!
Holly: At least this was found in a major research library at the university level. I’m not sure what’s up with the public libraries that WorldCat shows holdings for. It can safely be weeded and sent to a museum, archive, or special library with a specialty in World War II.
