This book was not compiled by "SS Police." Walther Schellenberg was an SS Surmbannfuhrer (Major) at the time of the compilation of the book. He was a Dept. Head in the SD (Security Service) He was promoted Brigadefuhrer und Generalmajor (Major General)in 1944.
Schellenberg was an attorney and like so many unemployed professionals joined the elite SS. He was noticed by SD Chief Heydrich ( combat fighter pilot (Norway), olympic grade fencer and concert hall level violinist). Heydrich always sought the brightest men for the SD. Schellenberg although known to the top level leaders of the Third Reich was unknown to the public.
As an Academy graduate, retired Army officer and retired attorney/judge I see the lawyers hand in this book. While the book is a summary of of an entire nation there is a noticeable economy of words. The organization of data is superb. This is NOT a book for the casual history reader. For the historian, especially those who ponder alternate history it is a goldmine!
Schellenberg was not just an intellectual he was a man of action and personal bravery in that he personally engaged in a gun battle with British agents in Holland and brought them as prisoners to Germany. For that action he was awarded the Iron Cross 1st Class.
Historically, it too is very interesting and worth every minute.
If you are a student of history, and would want to know what the Nazis would have done in Britain, give this book a read.
