Ok not great. Author kept mentioning subject kept dairy through out war. Thought he could have used that material a lot more. Should have been a more in depth bio than what we got here.

Format: Hardcover
One major shortcoming of this book, for which reason I give it three stars, is the information and quotations that are not linked to any of the sources in the bibliography. This makes it difficult for the reader to conduct further research, and s/he must resort to other books on Hans Frank.

Author O'Connor puts emphasis the role of the Bavarian Catholic Church in supporting Hitler. However, he sees this as a church that had allowed itself to be shaped by the popular culture, as he comments, "`The Church which is married to the Spirit of the Age will be a widow in the next'. Dean Inge's judgment is often quoted today in support of Catholic traditional values. In many disastrous ways the Catholic Church in the late 1920's and the 1930's was married to the `Spirit of the Age'." (p. 103).

In time, the Nazis showed their true anti-Christian colors. Already in 1934, the song of the Hitler Youth included stanzas that were anti-Christ, anti-papist, and openly stated that the singer is not a Christian and not a Catholic. (p. 97). Hitler repeatedly made snide remarks about Christianity. (pp. 98-on). The Nazis abolished mandatory prayer in schools in 1935, and eliminated religious education for 14-15 year olds in 1940. (p. 95, 105).

The author touches on the sexuality of the Nazis. They modeled their homosexuality on that of the male bonding of the Spartans. (p. 57). He considers it inconclusive as to whether Hans Frank was a homosexual or bisexual. He also puts the later Nazi persecution of gays in perspective, "Later the Nazis prosecuted homosexuals and sent them to concentration camps, though this did not happen with the thoroughness of the destruction of Jews, Catholics, intellectuals, opponents of the regime, and the disabled." (p. 95).

I found the book to be good, because Frank is a member only mentioned in numerous works, until this book where he is the featured subject. I have been studying the third reich for 15 plus years and I found some of the claims in the book to be wrong due to typos. other than that the book was good.
