    I do not know if many of you enjoy reading but posting at Caste-football proves you do have the skill whether are not you have the inclination. I just finished a excellent Kindle book by a independent Writer named Christopher Nuttall. The book which may only be available in kindle version ( a lot of independent novelist limit themselves to e-book publications ) is premised on a a starving Bio-warfare Researcher of the former Soviet Union selling a culture of a modified small pox virus to a not terribly same Saudi Prince who then deploys it against the U. S. Mr. Nuttall is from Scotland and currently resides on the island of Borneo but his portrayal of American characters right down to regional mannerisms is uncanny. He also puts fothr a very real an non-politically correct portrayal of certain ethnic minorities as well as depictions of immigrant behavior in such places and Britain and France. The title of this Novel is "Cowards Way of War" in addition to being pretty good adventure style Science Fiction it was also refreshingly honest in its' portrayals of Negroes, Arabs, Northern liberal politicians and regular Joe's and Jane's. I would recommend this novel to anyone. Could any of you recommend your favorite novels or even non-fiction particularly those with a Caucasian survival slant .

    thanks

    TOWG - Sir, I don't read novels for the most part, but my wife has a kindle and I passed it on to her.

    As far as recomending a book. I would advise anything by Eric Hoffer ( a longshoreman, his take on things is right on - it's very hard to trick hands on working men). His most famous book is "The True Believer." He comes right out and says what he means right up front and you don't have to wonder at what his meaning.

    Currently reading "A Rebel War Clerks Diary" by John B. Jones . Find it fascinating so far reading the 1st hand accounts from a Southerners perspective. Some things I found interesting:

    1. The number of Northern men that were appointed high ranking positions within the confederacy.

    2. His attitude towards Jews. Frequently refers to them as "Extortionists " and "profiters of war".

    3. The network of spies both sides employed. Mr. Benjamin a Jew and Secretary of War for the South seemed to have been a double agent for the North. Thrashen alluded to this crook in another recent thread.

    4. The fighting prowess of the Southern White man. Every battle they were outnumbered but for the 1st 3 years of the War they bloodied the Yankees back.

    Le Camp des Saints (The Camp of the Saints) by Jean Raspail should be at the top of any list like this. The original "European apocalypse" novel.

    Hold Back This Day by Ward Kendall. Similar to the above, but with a more worldwide focus, plus a little sci-fi.

    The Northwest Quintet by Harold Covington. While I don't share Mr. Covington's National Socialist views, he explores the idea of founding a White nation in the Pacific Northwest in great detail, and brings up issues rarely mentioned by other nationalists (for example, having to build an entire economy basically from scratch). The characters are well-written and easy to identify with, and the action scenes are exciting and for the most part realistic.

    I recommend books by Zane Grey and Ernest Haycox. They're western genre books.

    I also recommend books by Mickey Spillane and Erle Stanley Gardner.

    Spillane wrote crime / detective novels. Mike Hammer is his best known character.

    Gardner wrote the Perry Mason novels. He started writing these books in the 1930s. He wrote over 80 of them and is one of the best selling writers in history. The TV show was based on the Perry Mason novels. In the books Perry Mason is a combination of a lawyer and a detective.

    Good stuff.

    For "regular" stories, Apollo 13 (both the book and the movie) beats The Martian (both the book and the movie) by a light-year. The former is a true story of survival in space, with an accurate representation, book and movie alike, of who the heroes were (all White men), while the latter is a poor, politically correct imitation with a "diverse" cast of astronauts, not one but two magical tech-nerd negroes who save the day, and blatant pro-Chinese Communist propaganda.

    This same book was recommended by Tom Iron in another thread. With two recommendati0ns it must be a worthwhile book to read.

    I recommend The Constitution Made Easy, by Michael Holler to ever one. One more is Dixie Betrayed, by David J. Eicher.

    "The Myth of the 20th Century" - Alfred Rosenberg, Author. Very esoteric. He was the St. Paul of the Nazi Party. He was executed for nothing other than he wrote the book. The charges used against him were totally fabricated. He also wrote his Memoirs (short - not so esoteric - the last chapter really hits the nail on the head) while on trial - worth reading. They knew they had to execute Rosenberg rather than possibly allow him to write anything else.

    Best book about the origins of World War 2, The Forced War by David Hogan.
    A great WW2 memoir, The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer. Unforgettable.

    No, they weren't "fabricated." Rosenberg had an administrative post in the East (Generalplan Ost), and a paper trail. He wasn't executed for the book, which was considered a joke.

    I read "The Forgotten Soldier" when i was like 13. Very good book and very sobering.

    "Monte Cassino" by Sven Hassel is a more cheerful war book. The soldiers accept the horrible reality of war but retain their humanity and sense of Humor. Very important imo.

    Well, we disagree. He held no posts during the war that called for his execution. In my opinion actually, none of them should have been executed. The holocaust is a gigantic hoax.

    Even the most hardcore Jewish “Nazi Hunters” admitted that Rosenberg’s personal diaries stated obsoletely nothing about plans to conduct a mass-extermination of Jews (imagine their disappointment)...only that they should be relocated out of Europe. That process was occurring via internment camps (not unlike like the ones the U.S. government created for Germans and Japanese people living in America), but once the German infrastructure was thoroughly destroyed during mass Allied bombing campaigns, starvation and illness became rampant in the camps.

    That said, I understand why Rosenberg, Göring, Hess, Keitel, Dönitz, Frank, and so many others were executed at Nuremberg. Why wouldn’t they have been? Why would the Allies, the Russian Communists, and the globalist Jewish banking cartel who controlled them want to risk leaving such influential men alive? I could see them Marxists who control this county doing the same to the Trump administration some day.

    If you need any more evidence on how outrageously hypocritical and hyper-fraudulent these “trials” were, please read some quotes by Harry Truman and (then) Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Harlan Stone concerning this topic. Allied war crimes were seemingly infinite...but thankfully for them, they weren’t the ones on trial!

    Thrashen, one slight correction, Donitz and Hess were not executed at Nuremberg. Donitz was released in 1956, dying in 1980. Hess is the more interesting case as he was the last prisoner in Spandau, allegedly committing suicide in 1987. He would have been a very inconvenient free man, being able to talk more freely about his role as attempted peacemaker in 1941 with his flight to Scotland. I've wondered if Gorbachev was thinking about releasing him as a gesture toward peace and reconciliation when the Soviets were in charge of Spandau (they rotated control over their one inmate prison with the three western allies) and that the British made sure he didn't live to tell us more about his story, which was more evidence of Germany's desire for peace and Churchill's opposition to a negotiated end to the war.

    A few weeks ago it was "There are no films with German good guys." Actually, there are many. Now, Donitz and Hess "were executed at Nuremberg." Donitz was out in 10 years. wrote a self-justifying book, and could say anything he wanted to. Albert Speer was production minister. After his release in 1966, he wrote major best sellers and gave interviews to any documentary program or historian who wanted to hear him.

    The Hitler Fan Club members do not exactly brim with historical knowledge or perspective.

    The Americans, British, and French were willing to release Hess decades before his death, obviously weren't worried about what he would say.The Soviets insisted on keeping Hess at Spandau, due to their typical paranoia. They thought (or pretended to think) Hess was sent in 1941 to ask the British to join Hitler against the Soviet Union. In fact, by this time Hess had no influence with Hitler and was already going off his rocker. Hitler showed his "desire for peace" by invading Soviet Russia on June 22, 1941.

    Sport historian, I was referring to Hitler's desire for a negotiated peace with Britain, he clearly had plans for a war against Russia by the spring of 41,especially since Soviet Foreign minister Molotov's visit to Berlin in November 1940, where Molotov showed no interest in aligning with the Tripartite Pact of Germany Italy and Japan and instead was asking for Soviet spheres of influence in Finland and Bulgaria.
    Also, what would you recommend as some good examples of movies with positive portrayals of Germans, especially ones outside of the predictable "anti-Nazi good, pro-Nazi bad" historical box.

    Offhand, the "Sissi Collection," three movies which are available on Blu-Ray. This is a trilogy about a Bavarian princess who married the young Franz Joseph, Emperor of the Hapsburg Empire. Romy Schneider starred in the three West German film in the mid-1950's. They are in German with English subtitles, in glossy color, with a positive view of German-Austrian history, the kind of story the German public wanted at the time.

    You can try International Historic Films. IHF concentrates on WW II-Cold War topics but there are some German historical films available not about the Nazi period.

    In Rosenberg's book he outlines why Christianity is a bad fit for people like me and most White people on Castefootball I think. After reading his book, I know now why I've always had this problem with Christianity as it's presented to us. It's just not in most European men (just look at how many women are in the pews vs men) to accept what's being said from the pulpit. Lastly, Gandhi said during his non-violent campaign against the British that he didn't think the Pashtun tribesmen should take part in anything nonviolent because it was against their warlike natures. Well, the same is true of European men and the way Christianity is presented to us. Another thing about Rosenberg being executed. He wouldn't back off on his beliefs on National Socialism. So they couldn't lake a chance of letting him live to go on writing.

    Richard Wagner wrote to the Jew, Felix Mendelssohn that he should stop trying to write German music. Interestingly, the Jew, Joseph Heller who wrote "Catch 22" tried (in my opinion to emulate the German, Erich Maria Remarque) who wrote "All Quiet on the Western front." All Quiet on the Western front is a must read for every young man. It is literature in its totality. Catch 22 is just a shabby cartoon by comparison. It's interesting that Wagner had it right about Jews. They can only imitate western civilization. It's not in them to get the complete essence of our culture.

    Rosenberg and his book weren't taken seriously. "They" couldn't care less if someone wasted their time reading anything he wrote.
