Thank you! Preceded by two other books which have chronicled the exploits and experiences of the insurgent Asch this writes the end of this satiric record of World War II and, opening with the last few days of combat, carries through to early American occupation. Nub of the story line is the pursuit of a Colonel who has deserted his men, using their last manoeuvre to free himself and continue his viciously unscrupulous protection of his loot. Schulz is back with his wife Lore delighted with the Americans; ""Lumpface"" Major General Luschke underlines his cynical attitude towards his official duties; Kowalski, Stamm and Soeft occupy themselves as venally; and Asch's contemptuous disregard of rules and regulations clears the way for return to civilian life. Unfortunately the scenes dealing with the Americans are far less capable and entertaining than those concerned with the Germans. For his established audience which will appreciate these final chapters.

Hence this feature, which will examine and recommend authors whose work has all but disappeared from common view. In other words, what do we do with Nazi art? After all, hate-movements seldom do. Torquemada left us no stirringly ambivalent treatise on torture. No wizard of the Ku Klux Klan has written a searching work to make us question our moral underpinnings.
