Table of Contents
EUROPE’S LUCKY ESCAPE FROM DISASTER
By Peter Strahl. Europeans celebrate April 9 each year as the anniversary of their great 1241 victory over the vicious Mongol horde. But if a victory, it was a pyrrhic one—a huge number of the fighting men of Europe were wiped out. But what really turned the tide of battle? Was it the fortitude of the Europeans or the Angel of Death?
SVIATOSLAV I AND THE KHAZARS
By William White. One of the toughest heroes ever of the white race was Sviatoslav of Kiev, who slept with his troops outdoors without a tent and often subsisted on little more than strips of meat roasted over a campfire. He is credited with crushing the mighty Khazar empire—whose people were the warlike ancestors of the Jews.
RUSSIAN COSSACKS BATTLE BOLSHEVISM
By Aleksandr Mezentzef. Most TBR readers have heard about the bold stand Cossacks took against the Soviets inWWII. Fewer are aware that Cossacks were among the most fearsome foes the Bolsheviks faced in their takeover of Russia.
ETHNIC BROTHERS AT WAR
By Henrik Holappa. Most of us think of the Soviet armies of the 40s comprised mainly of Asiatics. But there were plenty of whites in the Soviet army as well. And, when Finland chose to fight the Soviet Union rather than surrender, Communist leaders made sure it was white troops who were sent off to fight the Finns—punishment for Soviet Ukrainian divisions whose homeland had put up such resistance to the original Bolshevik conquest.
EISENHOWER’S DEATH CAMPS
By Maria Gaulttner. Many of the real war criminals of World War II were on the Allied side. And the worst of these mass murderers was none other than Dwight Eisenhower, soon to become president of the United States.
THE REAL STORY OF THE ACE OF SPIES
By Daniel W. Michaels. The real James Bond was “Reilly, Ace of Spies” and his exploits are too numerous to list. It is hard to pin down the real facts about him, but here is what we think we know about Shlomo Rosenblum, aka Sidney Reilly.
KAMIKAZES AND THE 9-11 ATTACKS
By John Lee. Immediately after the attacks of 9-11, the mainstream media began portraying the perpetrators as “kamikaze” pilots. This irritates the Japanese, who see the WTC attacks as cowardly assaults upon innocent civilians.
JAPAN’S ICE AGE CIVILIZATION
By Marc Roland. During the last ice age, when European Cro-Magnons were competing with Neanderthal man, and sea levels were much lower, someone was working on sophisticated stone structures that are now under water.
ACROSS ATLANTIC ICE
By John Nugent. Were the first humans in the Western Hemisphere Cro-Magnons from Europe? This hypothesis is supported with mounds of evidence presented in a new book by two scholars who have been viciously attacked for their research.
THE FATE OF TWO AMERICAN OUTLAWS
By Philip Rife. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid found things were getting too hot for them in North America, so they skedaddled to Bolivia. The story goes that the Bolivian army killed them both in a gun battle, but did it happen that way?
INTERVIEW WITH THE “GREEK HITLER”
By Pete Papaherakles. In this issue, TBR interviews Nick Michaloliakos, leader of Greece’s rightwing Golden Dawn Party. Abe Foxman of the ADL says the Golden Dawn is neo-Nazi and their leader a “Greek Hitler.” Here Nick sets the record straight.
