New Book Gives Nasty Details of “Sex-Crazed Lothario” Nazi

Everyone knows that Hilter’s propaganda master, Joseph Goebbels, was one gruesome piece of work. However a new 912-page book by University of London history professor Peter Longerich introduces us to new depths of possibility in Goebbels’ nastiness, from The Daily Mail:

He walked with a limp and was known to some as the ‘poison dwarf’.

But a book reveals that Nazi Germany’s propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels was an unlikely lothario, nicknamed ‘the ram’ by the many actresses and society ladies he seduced.
Fortunately for history, Goebbels was also a compulsive note-taker.

He detailed many [of his conquests] on more than 30,000 sheets of paper that he left behind, some of them accessed for the first time by Professor Longerich, a German, for his 912-page book Joseph Goebbels: Biography.
The book is published by Random House Germany. At present, no English translation is available. Longerich’s most recent English-language book is Holocaust: The Nazi Persecution and Murder of the Jews (Oxford University Press) from 2010.
