If Indiana Jones, Hellboy, and Captain America are to be believed, Hitler spent an awful lot of time and Deutschmarks trying to find occult solutions to the pernicious problem of killing all those people who lived in countries he didn't rule. Wikipedia's article on the subject (conveniently titled "Nazism and occultism") suggests these ideas are bunk while simulatneously answering another question I didn't realize I had: does Nazism use the letter 'i' twice? But we all know popular fiction is mo ...more

Filled with trepidation simply from the title, I picked up Zombies vs. Nazis: A Lost History of the Walking Dead by Scott Kenemore.

So, it was my own love of history and the horror genre that got me to buy this title. Hooking in Hitler's perverse desire to control the occult with this tale of fiction was a fantastic premise on which to base this story and I was intrigued by the format too; told in an epistolary fashion akin to that of Dracula but this time in top secret memos sent to the Nazi Hig

A book about nazi's trying to learn to make zombies from the voodoo priests in Haiti. This was written completely in one way correspondence from the Nazi scientists to their commander in Germany. Because of this writing style a very large part of the story is left completely to the readers imagination. Many of the correspondences refer to the commanders response to previous letters but you never know what it actually said so the reader must infer what was said. Though this book is more about vo

Just a really meh story. I felt it didnt have a real plot line. That may be due to the style in which it was presented, as reports from officers to a superior officer. Even when things were happening I felt like nothing was happening. Also the illustrations distracted me too much. Mainly due to the fact they rarely corresponded to the opposite page. I found that they were usually depicting scenes described a page or two before.

Kind of fun and something you could read just a little at a time, but not the greatest zombie story.
A quick fun read that never takes itself too seriously (that's a good thing). More of a voodoo novel than a zombie one, but there's enough zombie action to merit the title.

Entertaining read. Each chapter written as an official communique which gives you the impression the story actually happened.

Fun and worth reading, but I have read better Zombies throughout history narratives. Though it was uniquely told and I really liked the ending.

I was perusing the humor shelves at my local used bookstore and came across this title. The minute I saw it, I grabbed it off the shelf to wonder and gawk at it. I immediately read the story description on the back jacket and couldn't stop giggling at the premise. It's so ridiculous but weird enough that it sounds like something the Third Reich would try to do. There are numerous tales of the Nazis being enthralled with the supernatural, so why not try to create a Nazi zombie army? After skimmin ...more
