Author: Peter Moon


A hit with the book, or miss with the title

I enjoyed this book, but I could not give it a better rating. Let me explain. I spent over 25 years in Family Court, dealing with some people who were crazy or at least the state of New York thought some of them to be committable. I never found them to have a huge followings of people like Hitler had. I figured one had to study history,try to understand it,so that it would not necessarily repeat itself . The problem with the book, although interesting, doesn’t spend enough time trying to give more details or explain that as “Russians were making their way through Berlin. In the cellar of a building, they found six Tibetans lying dead in a ritual circle. In the center was a Tibetan monk wearing green gloves.

Seven days later, over one thousand Asiatic bodies were found dead. They were Tibetans who had fought alongside the Germans and wore uniforms of the same. There were no papers or means of identification on the bodies.” This is what I thought the book would’ve been mostly about; but it is not.It takes over 60% of the book to get to this point and really only deals with it for a chapter or two. The book is interesting, it brings out some historical questions that are overlooked such as the Nazi connection in the United States and wartime landings in Long Island. If the book was titled differently, I would’ve been able to give it more stars. It is a good for people interested in history, but don’t expect to be satisfied with the connection to Tibet.
