From French MacLean
25 July 1998

"My new book: The Camp Men: The SS Officers Who Ran The Nazi Concentration Camp System was published this week by Schiffer. I have almost completed a companion volume on the officers who served in the einsatzkommandos and believe I will have that submitted to Schiffer by the end of September in time for the December publication target date. In addition to describing the organization and function of these units, the book will detail information on 315 (identified so far) SS officers who served in these units. This work will have close to 200 photographs and several maps which will show the progress of the units as they advanced into Russia in 1941.

"My goal for both books is to provide the reader with not only an interesting read, but also a set of books he'll come back to time and again when he comes across the name of an SS officer in some other book and wants to easily review biographical information. Those readers familiar with the "Knight's Cross" series by Biblio Verlag will have an insight of how the book is organized."

Chris Donaghue Books
17 July 1998

We regret the necessity of announcing receipt of serious complaints concerning problems with online orders placed with Chris Donaghue Books. Due to the nature and number of these allegations, and failure of Chris Donaghue Books to respond to our repeated inquiries, we have removed all links to the CDB website until such time as these issues are resolved. It must be emphasized that this step is only a precautionary measure until all the facts have been ascertained. Caveat emptor.
