Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Question: Why this title? Answer: to sell more. This is not a bad book, perhaps the one of the best concerning Baader-Meinhof band. However, it is still quite tiring - more than half of the book focused on irrelevant Information while the important events briefly described. A bit disappointed.

Hitler's Chidren - truth or propaganda? 21. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
For 20 years this book has been seen as the definitve account of the terrorist scare in 1970s Germany. But time has not been kind. Jillian Becker's otherwise brilliant biography always suffered from her own politics; now with hindsight it's hard to see where the truth ends and fiction begins. The first section of Becker's book, which covers the genesis of the Red Army Faction in the late 1960s is quite superb. There is extensive, if slightly innacurate, biographical material on the leaders, and a genuine attempt to explain why the peaceful radical student movement became a radical terrorist one. But it's when she turns her attention to the RAF itself that the cracks begin to appear. For instance, Becker repeats with almost insulting frequency the official government line that the RAF prisoners were not subject to intense and deliberate solitary confinement. They were. Anyone who's read Stefan Aust's work 'Der Baader Meinhof Komplex' (the translation is now sadly out of print) will know this to be the case. Becker glosses over the whole imprisonment and trial of the gang, preferring instead to paint them as rowdy youths who were getting just what they deserved. Some of her comments defy belief. Unfortunately, since English-language books on the RAF are few and far between Jillan Becker has become the most comprehensive source on the gang by default. And I'm not denying that her book makes an excellent secondary source. Just be sure to take some of her more extreme comments with a pinch of salt.

A study of how student radicalism turns into terror 3. September 2011
Von Gary Selikow - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was written in 1977 about the German Communist terrorist organization called the Red Army Faction, or more popularly the Baader Meinhof gang, which waged a reign of terror across Germany in the 1970s and also the Lufthansa 181 Somalia hijacking in 1977, together with Palestinian terrorists who found out that three women on the airplane were Jewish and singled them , made them kneel down and kicked and beat them. Their terrorist activities in Germany including a series of shooting of police officers and civilians and some high profile kidnappings and executions.
The BMG trained in various Arab countries and while they claimed they were fighting Fascism, in reality they aimed to overthrow the tolerant liberal democracy respectful of human rights in West Germany and replace it it with another totalitarian regime such as East Germany or the Soviet Union which they fully identified with. Ulrike Meinhof, one of the gang's most ruthless ringleaders wrote a piece in the far left newspaper published by the group when they belonged to the radical student movement the SDS and in it she praised the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia-so much for their professed pacifism and hatred of 'fascism'
Meinhof and the others also exhibited a violent anti-Zionism which is of course a form Jew-hatred targeting the Jewish State and it's Jewish population-and the author of this book recognizes the lie that aims to distinguish Jew-hatred from Israel-hatred as the vile sophistry that it is. They were in this Jew-hatred akin to their Nazi forefathers and again their opposition to 'fascism; s a slogan used by leftwing totalitarians which is ironic as they favour methods and systems which so resemble the 'fascism' and Nazism they so virulently claim to hate.
looking at this from the vantage point of 2011 one can look at the vile Communist front organization in the United Kingdom known as 'United Against Fascism', which is simply a front for support of Islamic radicalism and hatred of England's white working class.
Referring to the atrocities committed by the BMG the author refers to the trial of the BMG and how "The judges maintained that it was not acceptable to refer to genocide in Vietnam and then to start a war of one's own. The accused they said knew and were fully conscious that they were breaking the law. They listed the people who had been made into scapegoats for "American Imperialism" by the accused. As well as the soldiers who had been killed, printers, proof-readers, housewives, a tourist group, a child riding a scooter on a sidewalk had all been killed by their bombs".
The author paints biographical portraits of the ringleaders of the group such as Ulriche Meinhof, Andreas Baader, Gudrun Ensslin, Horst Mahler (who today is a fanatical Neo-Nazi) and Jan-Carl Raspe. all of these young people came from comfortable upper middle class backgrounds in common with most white radicals from western backgrounds. The author describes the psychological causes based on narcissism and the need to kill in the name of a vague ideal: In discussing the next generation of young terrorists linked to the Baader Meinhof gang Jillian Becker describes how they "came from the same affluent background;were moved by the same ambition to be extraordinary;the same urge to defy for the sake of defying, were as much in need of submitting to the authoritarianism of the group; and out of the same boredom, self-dissatisfaction, hatred and confusion, they committed their acts of cruelty and destruction and felt the same need to justify themselves by referring to vague ideals"
Today their is a new generation of European and American radicals from similar affluent backgrounds, and with a similar hatred of western society who have put their passions into supporting Islamic terror and particularly Arab terrorists groups that aim to destroy Israel. The International Solidarity Movement is made of of young radicals from Arab countries who have aided and abetted Palestinian terrorists groups such as Hamas, the PFLP, the Popular Resistance Committees and others carry out attacks on Israeli citizens. The ISM is quite open about its belief that killing Israeli children is justified. This is an important book to read in understanding the psyche and modus operandi of ruthless young white radicals from affluent backgrounds, including those today!

I do not recommend it. 1. September 2014
Von David Leda - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Instead of just telling the story and letting the reader arrive to his own conclusions the author is constantly trying to prove, in the most heavy-handed manner, that the Baader-Meinhof gang were a bunch of spoiled retards, sometimes even bending the truth, like when she says that Gudrun Ensslin starred in a porn film. The film in question, called Das Abonnement, is an experimental short with some nudity but not porn at all (some excepts can be seen on YouTube). The writing style is poor and sometimes confusing, with too many time jumps, and the e-book version has quite a few typos, which makes the reading a tiresome experience. Too bad it is the only e-book on the subject available.

powerful and instructive 21. August 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This book should be returned to print. Ms. Becker's book is very well documented and is aided greatly by the fact that she doesn't buy into any romantic notions of the RAF's bravery, commitment, or moral sensitivity. She does point out that the early student protests in Germany had just cause and she does take the Berlin police to task for shooting Benno Ohnesorg and for exonerating the policeman responsible ("It was a whitewash.").
A previous reviewer writes: "Even someone wholly against violence, as I am, will empathize with the bravery and idealism of those who risk extermination in support of a cause." Would he (or she)make the same observation about Timothy McVeigh? Or the members of the Manson Family? The only difference between McVeigh and the Unabomber is political philosophy. What is brave about planting a bomb in a car or a building where innocent people can get killed? Did any of these groups or people ever once directly engage soldiers or even the police?
At one point in the notes at the back of this book, Ms. Becker makes an observation that defines these groups and fashionable leftism in a nutshell: "...postwar middle class children in the prosperous societies which alone can afford these 'hip' politics were educated to believe in compassion as a sentiment rather than justice as a principle."
Some of the writing is a little sloppy and one does occasionally wish Ms. Becker would keep her opinions a little more in the background--she was, perhaps, reacting to the hip cachet that groups like the RAF had (and still have) among the affluent left intelligentsia.
Try to pick up the 1978 edition, which has some up-to-date info about later RAF actions and the suicides of the leaders. Read this book and your ideas about what's going on in places like Seattle and Genoa will change a little.

A Valuable Historical Account 7. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In this extraordinarily well-researched and highly readable study, the author traces the rise of terrorism in West Germany in the late 1960s, finding its roots in the New Left student protest movement. She shows how a small group of affluent, educated, young men and women, starting off as 'pacifists' - for unilateral Western nuclear disarmament, and against American intervention in Vietnam - went on after the protest movement itself had subsided to use extreme violence against their neighbors, laying bombs in public places to kill and maim indiscriminately. The Rote Armee Fraktion, otherwise known as the Baader-Meinhof gang, declared itself to be Communist. At the same time other terrorist groups, similarly constituted, acted in the name of Anarchism. But whatever the pretext, none had a visible or discoverable cause of its own to struggle for, and the author rightly looks for explanation in the heads of the young mass-murderers themselves. She finds it in their desire to distinguish themselves from their parents' generation. Yet with their fanaticism and destructiveness, anti-Semitism, ruthlessness, cruel and murderous methods, and their hatred of Western democracy, these epigoni resemble their Nazi forebears more than they differ from them.
'Hitler's Children' is by far the best book yet written on the 1968 New Left rebellion and its aftermath in Europe. Jillian Becker is an English novelist and fact-book writer. She sets out the facts in a cool and witty style, and for the most part lets them speak for themselves. To call her book 'self-serving' as one reader-critic does, cannot be justified. She clearly had no interest in the people and events she describes other than as an investigative writer. In London recently I bought the third editon, published by Pickwick Books, which provides a publishing history. Although first commissioned by J.B.Lippincott Company, New York - and subsequently translated into many European languages and Japanese - the later English-language editions have not been published in the United States; but as they cover more ground, and bring the story to its actual conclusion by dealing with the next generation of West German terrorists, they are to be recommended above the first edition.
