The infamous Gestapo secret police were in fact anything but secret - their methods were publicized in the Nazi press from early on to make sure that opponents of the regime understood who they were dealing with. This study of the organization considers whether it was indeed the all-powerful, all-knowing instrument of terror of its reputation, tracing its origins and history, examining the crimes of the Third Reich and investigating the fate of former officers after the war.
