The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum encyclopedia of camps and ghettos, 1933-1945 by Geoffrey P Megargee( )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Created by the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the monumental 7-volume encyclopaedia that the present work inaugurates will make available - in one place for the first time - detailed information about the universe of camps, sub-camps, and ghettos established and operated by the Nazis - altogether some 20,000 sites, from Norway to North Africa and from France to Russia. This volume covers three groups of camps: the early camps established in the first year of Hitler's rule, the major concentration camps with their constellations of sub-camps that operated under the control of the SS-Business Administration Main Office, and youth camps. Overview essays precede entries on individual camps and sub-camps. Each entry provides basic information about the purpose of the site; the prisoners, guards, working and living conditions; and key events in its history. Material drawn from personal testimonies helps convey the character of each site, while source citations for each entry provide a path to additional information

"In War of Annihilation, noted military historian Geoffrey P. Megargee provides a clear, concise history of the Germans' opening campaign of conquest and genocide in 1941. By drawing on the best of military and Holocaust scholarship, Megargee dispels the myths that have distorted the role of Germany's military leadership in both the military operations themselves and the unthinkable crimes that were part of them."--Back cover

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum encyclopedia of camps and ghettos, 1933-1945 by Geoffrey P Megargee( )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume II of Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos describes sites under the control of states that aligned themselves with Nazi Germany, as allies, satellite countries, or independent collaborationist regimes. For a variety of reasons, such states each undertook the persecution, and often the murder, of people it considered undesirable or threatening. Such target groups included Jews, who were often killed directly or handed over to the Germans. Other victims spanned any number of ethnic or national groups, or political or military opponents. Each state created its own unique mix of detention sites under a variety of agencies, but all with goals that mirrored those of Nazi Germany. From the far north of Finland to France's west African colonies, this network of sites did its work with little or no input from the Germans. This volume, with its descriptions of the individual sites and broad introductions to the regimes that governed them, adds to our understanding of a system that was truly European in scale, and not solely a German undertaking

Triumph of the null : the war within the German high command 1933-1945 by Geoffrey P Megargee( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sources reveal a picture of the high command that is thoroughly at odds with the popular myth. While Hitler remains the central figure in the decision to go to war and in many of the high command's strategic and operational decisions, his subordinates in the General Staff deserve a large portion of the responsibility for the war's instigation, nature and outcome. Also, the study reveals that the command was anything but a carefully designed, unitary structure. Its organization and functioning were the logical extension of more than a century of bureaucratic infighting. In the Second World War the Germans' high command system mirrored the characteristics of their wider war effort: efficiency and skill at the bottom that fell prey to chaos and incompetence at the top
