English Translations of the Books of Dr. Joseph Goebbels

Dr. Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945) was a prolific author, but to date only two of his books have been translated into English. Additionally, there are some booklets and three collections of selections or excerpts from his diaries. The lack of English-language translations of Goebbel's books is not because the books themselves are poorly written, uninteresting or unimportant. Quite the contrary: they are brilliantly written, extremely interesting, and of superlative historical importance. Rather, they have not been translated because they are so awful, but because they are too good!

Here is what has appeared so far:

  • Michael: A Novel translated by Joachim Neugroschel. Amok Press, NY, 1987. Original title: Michael: Ein deutschen Schicksal in Tagebuchblaettern (Michael: A German Destiny in Diary Pages). Written in 1923 but not published until 1929. Of minor interest overall, but a major point has been overlooked by reviewers: Michael reveals that Goebbels had read and was influencd by Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche.
  • The "Nazi-Sozi": Questions & Answers for National-Socialists, Landpost Press, Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, 1992. Booklet; German original published 1931. Goebbels' German title is, Der Nazi-Sozi: Fragen und Anworten fuer den Nationalsozialisten; those who maintain that the German National-Socialists themselves never used the term "Nazi" should reconsider their position!
  • "Communism with the Mask Off," transcript in booklet form of Goebbels' speech "Kommunismus ohne Maske," given at the 1934 NSDAP rally in Nuremeberg. English edition Berlin, 1935; German edition 1934, Munich. Goebbels here recounts the Jewish origins and savage record of the communist movement.
  • "Total War Speech"/"Wollt Ihr den totalen Krieg?", Preuss, 2001, translator not listed. Bilingual edition of  the famous speech given by Goebbels at the Berlin Sports Palace on February 18, 1943, following the German defeat at Stalingrad. There are two transcripts of this speech: the first is a printed handout made beforehand and distributed to journalists; the second is a record of the speech as Goebbels actually delivered it. The second version is longer, more detailed and more candid than the text given to reporters. This booklet is based on the first version.
  • My Part in Germany's Fight translated by Dr. Kurt Fiedler, 1938. First published by Goebbels in German as Vom Kaiserhof zum Reichskanzlei (1935). This book contains selections from his diary from the fateful period Jan. 1, 1932, through May 1, 1933. There are many English editions of this translation available. Most recently, a deluxe paperbck edition has been published with the title From Kaiserhof to Reichchancellery. Available from NS Publications.
  • The Goebbels Diaries: 1939-1941, translated and edited by Fred Taylor, Hamish Hamilton Ltd., Great Britain, 1982. Diary excerpts from Jan. 1, 1939 through July 8, 1941.
  • The Goebbels Diaries: 1942-1943, translated and edited by Louis P. Lochner, Doubleday & Company, Garden City, 1948. Diary excerpts from Jan. 21, 1943 through Dec. 9, 1943. Heavily edited and interspersed with hostile, derogatory commentary by the editor.
  • The Final Entries 1945: The Diaries of Joseph Goebbels, translator not listed, G. Putnam and Sons, New York, 1978. Diary entries with minimal editing, from Feb. 27 through April 9, 1945.

There is a continuing discussion among historians--NS, Revisionist and mainstream alike--as to the authenticity and reliability of the transcripts of Adolf Hitler's private conversations published variously as Hitler's Table Talk and Hitler's Secret Conversations. These transcripts are not verbatim record's of Hitler's words, but rather paraphrases of them, compiled by different secretaries under the direction of Martin Bormann. Some believe that Bormann unduly influenced the content of the transcripts, to further his own career and/or ideological agenda. Others believe that the secretaries sometimes got things wrong.

The excerpts from the Goebbels's diaries edited and translated by Loius Lochner, listed above, provide a useful tool in deciding how reliable the Table Talks are. Goebbels was present during some of these conversations, and entered his own version of them in his diary. Thus, one can compare and contrast Goebbels' account of a given conversation with the record of the same conversation as transcribed under Bormann's direction.

For example, see Hitler's discussion of vegetarianism at midday on April 25, 1942. A record of his remarks are included both in the Table Talks and in the Goebbels' diary entry for that day.

This can be done with many other entries are well.

An Introduction to Hitler's Germany

The Good Society by Matt Koehl. NEW ORDER, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 2007. ISBN 0-9648533-3-7, booklet format, 24 pp., nine photographs. Available from

On January 11, 2005, NEW ORDER Commander Matt Koehl was given the opportunity to present  an uncensored, pro-NS description of Hitler's Germany to an honors class of political science high school students in Worthington, Ohio. This booklet is a transcript of his remarks.

The masters of deceit would have us believe that Hitler's Germany was a nightmare world, a brutal dictatorship characterized by terror, hatred, slave labor and genocide. Workers' rights were trampled on, the youth conscripted and dragged off to fight in endless wars and women reduced to mere brood cows. People went hungry because the evil Nazi economy placed "guns before butter," and science and technology were held in thrall to the capitalist-military war machine.

The truth about Hitler's Germany is exactly the opposite of this horror-filled fantasy. Rather, the National-Socialist order was modern and progressive. The economy was efficient and productive, with full employment that generated a high standard of living for the working class. Mothers and children were honored, respected and cherished. There was free health care and free higher education for all. It was, indeed, a good society!

Koehl begins by setting forth the criteria for an ideal state. These include a stable and prosperous economy, affordable housing, acessible health care, universal education, support for the farming community, public safety, and protection of the environment. He then shows how National-Socialist Germany fulfilled each of these in a systematic and comprehensive manner.

Especially interesting is his explanation of how the NS economy functioned. By basing the German economy on the productive capacity of the German worker rather than some extraneous metal such as gold or silver, Hitler was able to bypass the international capitalist financial system, and create a stable currency with no debt or inflation. The key to this was drawing a distinction between productive capital and speculative capital. The stunning success of the NS economy, in turn, was able to finance housing, health care, and a high standard of living for ordinary Germans.

As a former Hitler Youth member once told NS Bibliophile, the Marxist plan for making everyone economically equal is to make everyone equally poor, while the NS plan for economic equality is to make everyone equally wealthy.

NS Bibliophile heartily and without reservation recommends The Good Society as a brief introduction to the reality of Hitler's Germany. Both readers new to the subject as those well versed in it will find it informative and inspiring.

Our only complaint is that it is too short! Matt Koehl could write volumes on this topic -- and we hope that some day he will!

Note on the Murphy Translation of MEIN KAMPF

There is an ongoing debate among National-Socialists and White Nationalists over which English language translation of Mein Kampf is the best.

NS Bibliophile believes that the Ralph Manheim translation published by Houghton Mifflin, while not perfect, is superior to all others. Despite his undisguised hostility to Adolf Hitler and the NS worldview, Manheim's translation is the most accurate and best captures the spirit of Hitler's message.

However, there are some people who prefer the James Murphy translation, first published by the British publishing house of Hurst and Blackett in 1939. Sadly, this preference is not based on the quality of the translation, but rather on the dishonest claim made by the publisher that the Murphy translation is the "official version" and "authorized" by Hitler himself. But that is not true.

Here is a short version of the true story: In 1936, the German government contracted with Murphey to do a translation of Mein Kampf, and Murphy made an initial rough draft. It contains numerous errors, and the prose is stilted and awkward. However, Murphy was ill and did not have the energy to complete the project. His rough draft was obtained by Hurst and Blackett, which they published, without corrections or modification, in 1939 as the "authorized" English edition. But neither the German government nor Hitler himself ever approved Murphey's initial draft.

But it gets worse: because he was ill, Murphy hired one Greta Lorke an assistant translator to help him out. Unbeknownst to him, Lorke was an operative of the "Red Orchestra" (Rote Kapelle, auf deutsch), the notorious Communist espionage and sabotage ring run by the Soviet Union. She saw working on the Mein Kampf translation as a perfect cover identity that allowed her to participate in Red Orchestra activities without drawing suspicion to herself. Additionally, she saw the assignment as an opportunity to discredit Hitlerism by fiddling with the passages that she translated.

An account (sympathetic, of course!) of Lorke's involvement in the Murphy translation may be found on pages 110 - 111 of the book Red Orchestra: The Story of the Berlin Underground and the Circle of Friends Who Resisted Hitler by Anne Nelson, Random House, NY, 2009.

A fuller examinaton into Lorke's role (including the insertion of deliberately erroneous material) appears in a harder-to-find earlier volume, Hitler's Mein Kampf in Britain and America by James J. Barnes and Patience P. Barnes, Cambridge University Press, NY, 1980.

To summarize: (1) the James Murphy translation of Mein Kampf published by Hurst and Blackett was an uncorrected rough draft made by a sick man; (2) it was NOT authorized or approved by either Hitler or the German government; and (3) parts of the translation were done by the Soviet spy and saboteur Greta Lorke, who was pursuing her own anti-NS ideological agenda.

Once again, NS Bibliophile recommends the Manheim translation -- or better yet, the German original!

Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler. Trans. Ralph Manheim, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1943. Index, 694 pp., ISBN-13: 978-0395925034. Reading it in the original is always the preferred option, but if you are limited to an English translation, this one is the best.

White Power by George Lincoln Rockwell. Ragnarok Press, Dallas, Texas, 1967 [1968], 482 pp., illustrated. See especially Chapter 15, "National Socialism," for Rockwell's discussion of the Natural Order and National-Socialism.

National Socialism: The Biological Worldview by Povl H. Riis-Knudsen. Nordland Forlag, Aalborg, 1987. Frontispiece, 30 pp. Essential!

ut Still Containing Valuable Information

Blood and Soil: Walther Darre and Hitler's Green Party by Anna Bramwell. Kensal Press, 1985, 224 pp., ISBN-13: 978-0946041336. Not NS - but not as hostile as most mainstream books on Hitler and the Hitler era!

Racial Hygiene: Medicine under the Nazis by Robert N. Proctor. Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London, England, 1988. Notes, index, bibliography, 43 figures, 414 + vii pp., ISBN 0-674-74580-9. See especially Chapter 1, "The Origins of Racial Hygiene," and Chapter 3, "Political Biology: Doctors in the Nazi Cause." One gets the feeling that Proctor feels it necesary to go out of his way to show his anti-NS sentiments because the topic lends itself to a favorable portrayall of National-Socialism.

The Nazi War on Cancer by Robert N. Proctor. Princeton University Press, Princeton and Oxford, 1999. Notes, index, bibliography, figures, 380 + x pp., ISBN 0-691-00196-0. See especially Chapter 3, "Genetic and Racial Theories," Chapter 5, "The Nazi Diet," and Chapter 6, "The Campaign against Tobacco."

Contains two essays: "Fascist Ideology: The 'Green Wing' of the Nazi Party and Its Historical Antecedents" by Staudenmaier; and "'Ecology' and the Modernization of Fascism in the German Ultra-Right" by Biehl. The quotes they cite from NS sources alone make this worth reading!

Available from the publisher

The British Free Corps by Robert Best. Booklet format, 20 pp. Available from

"This conflict between England and Germany is
racial SUICIDE."

-- British Free Corps recruiting leaflet, 1944

In the beginning was the word: on November 29, 1942, Adolf Hitler's personal aide, Walter Hewel, wrote in his diary:

[Hitler] believes that countless patriotic Englishmen must be suffering under the present regime, as they see the future danger of the Jews, and particularly, of the Bolsheviks taking over the Empire. He considers it quite possible that given suitable treatment a British legion could be raised to fight in British uniforms against bolshevism. Such a legion would be more welcome to him than one of any other nationality.

Three months later, the pro-German British political dissident John Amery had formed the Legion of St. George, which a year after that became the "British Free Corp (SS)." The Britisches Freikorps (as it was known in German) was one of a number of formations made up of non-Germans which fought on the side of the Axis during the Second World War under the overall command of Heinrich Himmler's Waffen-SS.

The Waffen-SS was the military wing of the SS, which itself was a subordinate formation of the National-Socialist German Worker's Party. The name Waffen-SS may be translated as "Armed SS" or "Combat SS." Himmler had always conceived of it as a pan-Aryan (or at least pan-Germanic) formation. This is in keeping with National-Socialist racial theory, which is racially nationalist rather than state nationalist. From very early on, racially acceptable non-Germans were allowed to serve in the Waffen-SS. Historian George H. Stein notes:

As early as 1938, Himmler had authorized the acceptance of qualified Germanics (Germanen) in the [Waffen-SS]. He was not referring to ethnic Germans who had long been accepted into the armed SS. When Himmler spoke of Germanen he meant non-Germans of "Nordic blood." Towards the end of 1938, there were only twenty such volunteers in the armed SS. By May 1940, there were 100, including five from the United states, three from Sweden, and 44 from Switzerland. . . The German conquest of Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands, however, opened up an entirely new dimension in SS recruitment.

Rather than integrate foreigners into the German SS, non-Germans were recruited into separate military formations, such as the Danish Legion and the Norwegian Legion. Initially these legions were under the command of the German Army. Soon, however, they were transferred to the SS, and were reorganized a normally structured military units, such as regiments and battalion, rather than as "legions." The British Free Corps was one such formation. It has long been the subject of rumor and speculation, and there has been little reliable information available concerning it. However, in recent years new research has brought to light more data concerning the BFC, so that now its story may be told in full for the first time. A good brief introduction to the BFC is provided by The British Free Corps, Robert Best's short but fact-filled mongraph on the topic. A more in-depth look may be found in Richard Landwehr's book, which contains not just an overview of the subject, but which also focuses in detail on the stories of many of the individual men who fought in its ranks.

The BFC consisted largely of British prisoners captured by the Germans in the early years of the war. These soldiers were given the option of sitting out the rest of the war in the relative safety of a POW camp, or in joining the BFC and risking life and limb to fight "Jewish Bolshevism." Remarkably -- or maybe not remarkably at all -- nearly two-hundred Brits opted to join the struggle against Marxism. Very importantly, as Best points out, they enlisted with the clear understanding that they would never be used in combat against their fellow countrymen, but only against the Soviets.

Best lists the names of 165 BFC members, with their fates (where known). He also quotes a source which indicates that by January 1945, some 1,100 Britons had applied to join the formation. Additionally, there was also an SS Irish Brigade, which was about 400 men strong.

Best reveals that although the BFC marched as a unit in a number of military parades, it was apparently committed to combat in a piecemeal fashion. The author recounts that a number of BFC members acquitted themselves with courage and tenacity during the final battle for Berlin. Some paid with their lives, while others survived -- only to be imprisoned in Soviet slave labor camps or tried as traitors by the British government.

It is the personal stories of the men of the BFC that is the strongest element of Landwehr's book, Britisches Freikorps. This is an upgraded version of the first edition of the book published in 1992. It is expanded in that it contains over twice the number of pages as well as many new photographs. It is visually improved in that it the layout and design are more professional and attractive. Additionally, it is now perfect-bound rather than stapled, and it now boasts an attractive three-color cover. More importantly, the content has been updated to include the results of the most recent research.

Landwehr is an internationally recognized expert on the Waffen-SS, and he is the author of numerous books on the subject. Whatever aspect of the Waffen-SS which he examines, he brings an encyclopedic knowledge to bear. Because he views his subjects with a sympathetic eye, he avoids the common failing of mainstream historians who more often than not demonize the SS at every turn. At the same time, however, Landwehr maintains enough scholarly detachment to treat his subjects honestly and fairly, and he does not shrink from showing their warts and pointing out their shortcomings when these are a genuine part of the historical record.

He begins with the requisite sections on the origins of the BFC, of its recruiting efforts, of its training and of the details of its uniform. The most fascinanting chapters, however, chronicle the BFC in action, and which tell the stories of many of the individual Corpsmen.

In addition to recruits from England, Scotland, Wales, Ulster and Cornwall, there were also Australians, Canadians, New Zealanders, South Africans, men from the Republic of Ireland -- and at least three Americans. One of the Yanks was a US Air Force officer known, ironically, by the name of "Lt. Tyndall;" it was said that he was born in Texas to an English father and a German mother. But "Tyndall" was almost certainly not his real identity: it was common for BFC members to be carried on the Corps' roster under an assumed name. It was a sensible precaution, intended to provide a layer of protection from persecution in the event that Germany lost the War. Consequently, the real identities of many of the Corpsmen remain a mystery.

The Corps was formed in early 1943 under the name of the "Legion of St. George." On January 1, 1944, the Legion was renamed the "British Free Corps," and recruitment and training began in earnest. Individual Corpsmen were posted to various Waffen-SS units as their training was completed. Apparently it was decided not to commit the entire BFC to battle as a single unit: although its value as a propaganda weapon was considerable, its military worth as an actual fighting formation was slight because of its small size. Had the whole BFC been sent into battle against the Soviets in the vast battles of annihilation that characterized the Eastern Front, it could have easily been wiped out down to the last man. This would have been a painful blow to Axis morale. By dispersing the troopers among different units, they could still serve as combat infantrymen, but the danger of them all being killed at once was removed.

However, on at least one occasion a small unit comprised entirely of BFC members did see combat. In March of 1945, a BFC detachment was deployed with with the 11th Waffen-SS division "Nordland," which was composed largely of Scandinavian volunteers. Although most of the Corpsmen were dispersed throughout the division, a squad-sized unit was assigned to the 3rd company of the reconaissance battalion, which consisted primarily of Swedish SS men. The BFC contingent was commanded by SS-Scharfuehrer "Hodge." ("Scharfuehrer" is sergeant; "Hodge" is mostly likely a nom de guerre and not his real name.) Landwehr reports, "The Britons were sent to a company in the detachment that was situated in the small village of Schoenburg near the west bank of the Oder River (p. 83)." On March 22, as the company was entrenching, it was partially overrun by an advance element of the Red Army which had blundered into its position by accident. Although taken by surprise, the SS troopers, including the BFC volunteers, quickly regained their wits and launched a vigorous counterattack, driving off the Soviets. One BFC fighter, a Cornishman named Kenneth Edward Berry, was captured during the brief but fierce battle, and was subsequently interned.

In the spring of 1945 the BFC headquarters unit was in Berlin. It was reduced to skeleton strength as the last Corpsmen were dispatched to the front for the final battle. One of the last BFC fighters still left in Berlin was Reginald Leslie Cornford. On April 27, he single-handedly destoyed a Soviet T-34 tank, by firing a one-shot handheld antitank missle at it from point-blank range. The crew of the tank bailed out of the burning vehicle, taking their personal weapons with them. In the ensuing firefight, Cornford was shot dead.

Another Corspman who distinguished himself during the battle for Berlin was Eric Pleasants, of Norwich. Pleasants is easily the most colorful figure in a formation that was full of colorful figures. Before the War he had been a Blackshirt security officers in Sir Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists. Unwilling to fight against Germany when war broke out, he aligned himself with the Peace Pledge Union, and was assigned agricultural work on the Channel Islands as an alternative to military service. Pleasants was interned with the other adult males when the Germans occupied the islands in 1940. He was an early volunteer in the BFC. Pleasants was naturally strong and athletic, and he had an iron constitution. He had experience in boxing, wrestling and the Oriental martial arts. Unsurprisingly, he became the physical instructor for the BFC. As part of his duties, he represented the BFC in exhibition boxing matches with the other Germanic SS units, and in time became the middleweight boxing champion of the SS.

During the climactic battle for Berlin, he managed to fight his way through the Soviet encirclement, killing two Communist soliders in hand-to-hand fighting in the process. He surrendered to the Americans, but after further adventures, he was interned by the Russians and spent seven years in a Siberian slave labor camp. Shortly before his death, he returned to England and died peacefully in Hethel, near his home town of Norwich, at age 87.

Of course, most of the stories of the BFC volunteers did not have such happy endings. Lance-Sergeant Harold Cole was imprisoned by the French after the War. In November of 1945, dressed as an American soldier, he escaped from the detention center in Paris where he was being held. He was killed shortly afterwards in a gun fight with the French police, who had tracked him down. Or consider the fate of Corpsmen Robert Heighes and William How, who perished during the Allied terror bombing of Dresden. And then there was Harry Batchelor, who was acquitted of all charges after suffering "improper interrogation and questioning" by the British authorities. Anyone familiar with the fiendish torture to which other SS men subjected after the War can imagine what these "improper" techniques were like!

Many other Corpsmen who survived the War were sentenced to prison terms by the British government for treason. Their sentences varied from a few months to many years. But as Landwehr notes:

While in prison the comradeship between the BFC members became much stronger than it had even in wartime; all were convinced that they had been treated unfairly and most were unrepentant. In fact, many of the known present-day survivors, estimated to number around a dozen by one source, remain National Socialists to this day. (pp.92-93)

Considering the gigantic scale of the Second World War and the huge number of men who fought in it, the saga of the British Free Corps can be seen as little more than a minor footnote. However, if the War had lasted longer, or if it had taken a difference course, it is easy to see how an expanded BFC could have played a more prominent role.

It is one thing to philosophize about pan-White racial solidarity in theory, while sitting at home or in a pub. It is altogether another thing to put it into practice in time of war, when one's life is on the line. The Waffen-SS provided a functioning framework for the practical application of pan-Aryan unity at a crucial moment in history. The fighting heroes of the British Free Corps rose to the occasion and provided an example for future generations to follow. All glory to them!

Addendum: the following letter to the editor appeared in Heritage and Destiny number 42 (October-December 2010).

Sir - I just had a chance to read Martin Kerr's review in the latest Heritage and Destiny of The British Free Corps by Robert Best. Excellent! I particularly liked the opening line ("In the beginning . . .") , as well as the concluding paragraph on pan-Aryanism in action. The review called to mind my April 1995 visit to Germany, where I took a group of pilgrims to Montbijou-Platz in central Berlin. Fifty years earlier, as Soviet tanks edged forward through the rubble-strewn streets of the city, a lone foreign volunteer stood in that very spot along a railway embankment, which formed one of the last lines of defense of the besieged city. As one of the tanks approached, he shouldered his Panzerfaust, took aim, and fired.

The ensuing explosion brought one of the advancing tanks to a halt. In subsequent return fire, the volunteer was mortally wounded. Upon recovering the dead body, there was found on the left sleeve of his field-gray uniform the Union Jack shield and a cuffband bearing the words: British Free Corps. Identification papers retrieved from the fallen SS man listed him simply as Reginald Leslie Cornford. In the maelstrom a little-known Briton had stood his ground and died -- a token of blood sacrifice in defense of a higher culture

With Berlin's reconstructed synagogue just down the street and present-day "Rosa Luxemburg" and "Karl Liebknecht" streets not far away, it is all rather emblematic of the real issues in a larger struggle. I look forward to the day when we can erect a fitting memorial at this site and the heoric contribution of this brave band of volunteers is recognized and more highly esteemed than that of the hundred of thousands of their countrymen, who were drafted to fight on the wrong side of the war under the aegis of international Zionism and its conjoined forces of finance Capitalism and Communism.

White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century by Jared Taylor. New Century Books [Oakton, Va.], 2011. Trade paperback, 340 + xvii pp., endnotes (including bibliographical references), ISBN 978-0-9656383-9-5. Available from

Prominent White Nationalist author, publisher and publicist Jared Taylor patiently explains the obvious realities of racial identity in the 21st century to oblivious White people. There are none so blind as those who refuse to see!

The Failure of Integration
The Myth of Diversity - Institutions
The Myth of Diversity - Daily Life
The Science of Human Nature
Black Racial Consciousness
Hispanic Racial Consciousness
Asian Racial Consciousness
White Racial Consciousness
The Crisis We Face

Curiously, the author does NOT include a discussion of Jewish consciousness. Perhaps this is just an oversight on his part, or perhaps he feels that Jews do not have a strong sense of ethnic/racial identity.

This volume bears a striking full-color cover illustration of the painting Wanderer above a Sea of Fog by Caspar David Friedrich (1818). There maybe some people in the world who feel that this work of art is not a presentitment of Nietzsche -- but I am not one of them!
