Publisher's Summary

Confronting Nazi evil is the subject of the latest installment in the mega-best-selling Killing series.

As the true horrors of the Third Reich began to be exposed immediately after World War II, the Nazi war criminals who committed genocide went on the run. A few were swiftly caught, including the notorious SS leader Heinrich Himmler. Others, however, evaded capture through a sophisticated Nazi organization designed to hide them. Among those war criminals were Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death” who performed hideous medical experiments at Auschwitz; Martin Bormann, Hitler’s brutal personal secretary; Klaus Barbie, the cruel "Butcher of Lyon"; and perhaps the most awful Nazi of all: Adolf Eichmann. 

Killing the SS is the epic saga of the espionage and daring waged by self-styled "Nazi hunters". This determined and disparate group included a French husband and wife team, an American lawyer who served in the army on D-Day, a German prosecutor who had signed an oath to the Nazi Party, Israeli Mossad agents, and a death camp survivor. Over decades, these men and women scoured the world, tracking down the SS fugitives and bringing them to justice, which often meant death. 

Written in the fast-paced style of the Killing series, Killing the SS will educate and stun the listener. The final chapter is truly shocking.

Another great Killing book by O'Reilly & Dugard

I love the intriguing story. It kept me involved and wanting to hear more. O'Reilly's narration is excellent and his years as a broadcast journalist is evident. An easy to listen to and follow read.

Disappointing

After much anticipation, regrettably I was disappointed with this latest addition to a worthy series of historical narratives. Overburdened with too many details interrupting the logical flow of events, it also suffers from Bill O’Reilly‘s numerous miss-pronunciations of German words and names. One would have thought that a broadcaster of his caliber would have taken the time to learn the correct pronunciation.

Bill O'Reilly does it again.

Great research, sad reminder of a group that brought such heinous suffering to millions. This story needs to be told again and again so this kind of history will not repeat itself.

O’Reilly does not disappoint!

I have read all of the “killing“ series. This one is very possibly the best of all of them! The incredibly heinous acts committed by the Nazis to their helpless victims stands in sharp contrast to the number of Nazis who escaped unscathed. However, the pursuit of these incredibly evil individuals and subsequent capturing of a handful of them is a suspenseful and dramatic reading that is certain to captivate most any audience. Filled with facts and dozens of lesser known details, I was completely enthralled every minute.

Great Story, Horrendous Narration

I am a big fan of O’Reilly’s “Killing“ series and I have read most of them as of this writing. Also, having recently re-read William L. Shirer‘s great work “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich“ I have been eagerly anticipating the release of this latest book. The story itself does not disappoint - it is well-researched, intriguing, and at times moving. However, while I have enjoyed O’Reilly’s narration of his past books, this attempt was embarrassingly poor. His pace was too fast, his diction bordered on drunken slurring, and most egregiously his German pronunciation was simply abominable! Further, not only did he mispronounce nearly every German word and name in the text, he couldn’t even be consistent in his errors. I am fluent in German, and if I had to listen to him pronounce the infamous Nazi death camp as “ouch-wich” or calling the Nazi party symbol a “swak-sticker” one more time, I was considering jamming an icepick in my ear just to make it stop. If O’Reilly isn’t going to approach narration of his own works in a professional manner, he needs to leave that task to someone who will.

Nonfiction Stranger than Fiction

Narration: Riley speaks quickly usually, but this time he is over the top, so much so that comprehension is impeded.

Content: Only now do I fully appreciate U.S. complicity in allowing so many Nazis off the hook. Shameful! Nonetheless, an important series of dastardly arrangements that should be known by all of us.

The Korzeny story is itself incredulous.

A must read

This well researched book Intensifies the understanding of the cruelty and heinous crimes dictated by Hitler in the SS. I’ve Listened to the last chapter now three times. Unbelievable.
