R into the Cold War for in Gehlen "s account the transformation is particularly fluid in "account the transformation is particularly fluid in case though his supporters changed his enemy remained always the same On the other hand the fluidity of that transformation serves another end one which it seems to me was very deliberately if only very uietly incorporated Gehlen s account serves as a kind of apology and I mean that in the strictest original sense In portraying his work as essentially and unwaveringly focused on the enemy his work as essentially and unwaveringly focused on the enemy the rise of totalitarian communism Gehlen downplays his role in the past threat of totalitarian Nazism The enemy of Nazi Germany becomes by his account a merely mitigated threat when compared to the even greater threat after the war The real threat does not come from the right he seems to freuently be suggesting but from the left His role as a Nazi it seems to be implied should be weighed only after his service in The Service is considered Is National Socialism to be measured in relation to its opposition to communism That seems to me to be among his insinuations for he depicts himself as the indispensable asset needed by his new American handlers to confront the new and now far greater threat We should be grateful *for Herr Gehlen s services Almost underlining this point is this strange fact who could a once Nazi foe *Herr Gehlen s services Almost underlining this point is this strange fact who could a once Nazi foe the United Statesnow turned friend by means of the new mutual enemy of the Soviet Union possibly turn to to translate his memoirs memoirs which promise to show the nature of the real war going on the real war for which the Second World War was only the dangerous foreplay David Irving Yes that David Irving David Irving the notorious holocaust denier David Irving In reading this book about friends and enemies we have a responsibility of keeping in mind just that.

So startling and dramatic are these memoirs the entire history of World War II will have to be rewritten because of them Gehlen's revelations cannot fail to embarrass governments cast doubts on famous.
