Readers' Comments on "Himmler's Crusade: The True Story of the 1938 Nazi Expedition to Tibet"
As the Indiana Jones films showed, Nazis, new age mumbo-jumbo and exotic locations are a formula that works. Christopher Hale's gripping and well-researched tale of an SS-sponsored scientific mission to Tibet in 1938-39 has the whole shebang...

Subject: Himmler's Crusade: The True Story of the 1938 Nazi expedition to Tibet
May 13 2004 09:20 PM

I have read the comments and the review of this book and I find it amazing that no one bothered to verfiy any part of the book before laughing. The India Company was approached by the German Embassy and was asked permission to cross India, in order to get to Tibet on a mission of botanical study. Sir Admiral Barry Edward Domvile, a member of the Link financed the expedition.Himmler had his staff officer, SS Officer Ernst Schafer appointed as head of the expedition and he recruited SS Officer Bruno Beger as his co-explorer. The Trip was to discover the origin of the Aryan Race. In the 1800's a group of people, Richard Wagner, for one and others consulted India and the Hindu religion and discovered the Aryan RAce from the Vedas of Hindu religion. Hitler read of this and thus the expedition to Tibet as Hitler wrongly assumed that the Tibetians were of the Russian STeppes and that they were the ones who had settled in the Indus Valley as the Aryans. Persians came from the Russian Steppes about 4000 years ago and settled in the Indus Valley and mixed with the Indians there. The Zoorastrium's Vesta sacred book speaks of this event, the Hindu Vedas all speak of this and all say that Aryans are superior to others due to their race, color and intelligence. King Prithivi Narayan Shah of Nepal has his ancestors coming from the Rajputs of Chitor in India, they are the descendants of the Aryan people. In Nepal's Constitution there is the reference to the fact that Hinduism is the religion of Tibet. The US State Dept. says that it is in the Constitution of Nepal but does not rule the country, however, the King participates in all Hindu events and has a personal Family Hindu Priest at the Palace and does not do anything without consulting the Hindu sacred books and the Hindu Astrologer. The King refers in the Nepal Constitution to the Aryans. In August of 1940, in Vienna, Avra M. Warren Director of the US State Dept's Visa Division told the refugee worked from the American Friends Service Commission, Margaret E. Jones, "Miss Jones, you Quakers will be doing a straight relief job for the non-Aryans from now on." Miss Jones inquired, "No more non-Aryans to go tothe US?" Warren replied, "yes" The US recognized the Aryan race in 1940 as per Warren's authorized trip to Europe by Roosevelt and his statements abroad. The Avesta and the Vedas recognize the Aryan Race and the Avesta claim that they are the mixed Indo-Aryan people and Nepal claims that they are the descendants of the Chitor Rajputs, the Indo-Aryans, the true Aryans. Nepal accepted gifts from Adolph Hilter in the form of Mercedes Benz when they had no roads to drive on; and they accepted a Carl Geist telescope that is in use today as well as the cars.Prime Minister Juddha Shumshere Jung Bahadur Rana of Nepal accepted these gifts and so did King Tribhuvan of Nepal. Hitler knew of the people of the Aryan Race, but did not related it to the Vedas or the Avesta sacred books of the Hindus and the Zoorastriums. Checking out the historical connections say that there is and was an Aryan Race of people and the descendents are in Rajistan, and in Nepal.

The book sounds interesting. I want to read it I agree with the previous poster that the reviewer is critical of anyone with an interest in alternative theories. Also he seems oblivious to the fact that Himmler, Hitler and most of the Nazi elite were reared Catholic, and they, in particular Himmler, wanted to re-introduce an occult neo-pagan religion. What connection did they have to "mainstream liberal Protestant theology"? Isn't that mostly a post WW II American phenomenon? Also Hitler discredited the word Aryan in everyones mind but isn't there evidence of the existence of an early Indo-European people through DNA evidence, the Uyghur mummies, the Tokharian language and the like?

The book does sound comic. However, Mr. Burleigh is rather rude and insulting about anyone with an interest in any alternative theories or new age
material. I don't agree with much of new age theory, but I see no need to be such a boor, Mr. Burleigh.
