Himmler’s Black Order 1923-45
The popular mythology of the SS has a clouded story which is so complicated as to almost defy belief: a tale of intrigue and nepotism, of archeology and Teutonism, of art and symbolism. The story of “Himmler’s Black Order” is one of an organisation led by a man motivated by the belief that he was the spiritual reincarnation of the Saxon King Heinrich I, founder of the German Reich. It is the story of street fighters and convicted criminals becoming Ministers of State and police commanders; the story of generals directing vast heterogeneous armies on devastating campaigns of Liberation. Here, indeed, fact is stranger than fiction. This book covers in detail the origins, development and organisation of both the Waffen-SS and the Allemeine-SS. The latter has been sorely neglected and underappreciated in post-war literature, yet it was the real body of the SS from which the more famous branches grew. The wide-ranging effects which the SS had on the police, racial policies, German history, education, the economy and public life are all described. Sections are also devoted to uniforms and regalia which were carefully designed to set Himmler’s men apart as a new elite in Third Reich society. The SS at war is considered, and a balance struck between the substantial battlefield achievements of the Waffen-SS and the victories of SS and police forces in the occupied territories. The little-known story of the Germanic-SS, staffed by foreigners in Western Europe, is also related. Having read just a few pages of this book i knew right away despite its occasional left leaning anti white comments it is a must read for all ORDER15 members who are interested in how to build and maintain a political and spiritual organisation.

Becoming a Barbarian
In the liberal, politically-correct world dominated by the faint of heart, the physically weak, and the spiritual lacking, “Becoming a Barbarian,” brooches the modern taboo of masculinity. In today’s effeminate society, boys grow without a proper understanding of what makes a man, a man. Jack Donovan broaches the subject with this thought – there’s a difference between being a man and being good at being a man. Donovan brings to light the issues that men need to hear and provides answers to the questions often never asked aloud. He speaks on men’s issues in the real world casting aside the unwritten social prohibitions often associated with men’s issues. A central theme highlighted within “Becoming a Barbarian” is the notion of Tribe. Donovan explains what ‘Tribe’ is and why its importance is embedded deep within the psyche of every man. He explains how, scientifically, an individual can only form a finite number of relationships and with the fact that men have an innate desire to protect those he ‘Loves,’ all men will seek out a ‘Tribe.’ Donovan points out that every man judges himself by the standards put forth by other men and lays out a detailed outline of what a man is and how he can improve at being a man. From explaining men’s need for identity and male ‘Belonging,’ to the breakdown of man’s predilection of the ‘Us versus Them’ mentality, and the importance of the männerbund and how to escape the ‘Empire of Nothing,’ Donovan does every man justice by writing a book directly to the heart of men. Thus providing men a path toward, ‘Becoming a Barbarian.’
Archeofuturism, an important work in the tradition of the European New Right, Faye believes that the future of the Right requires a transcendence of the division between those who wish for a restoration of the traditions of the past, and those who are calling for new social and technological forms – creating a synthesis which will amplify the strengths and restrain the excesses of both: Archeofuturism. Faye also provides a critique of the New Right; an analysis of the continuing damage being done by Western liberalism, political inertia, unrestrained immigration and ethnic self-hatred; and the need to abandon past positions and dare to face the realities of the present in order to realise the ideology of the future. He touches on the need for genetic manipulation , He prophesises a series of catastrophes between 2010 and 2020, brought about by the unsustainability of the present world order, which he asserts will offer an opportunity to rebuild the West and put Archeofuturism into practice on a grand scale. This book is a must-read for anyone concerned with the course that the Right must chart in order to deal with the increasing crises and challenges it will face in the coming decades.
Revolt Against the Modern World
The Modern Age is falling and the West is in an era of decadence. The darkest of all the dark ages, what the Hindus called the Kali Yuga, is before us and Ragnarok (Twilight of the Gods) is at hand. Tradition has been trammeled upon by modern utilitarian, pragmatist, and collectivist thought and the once sacred has been made profane. Mass-man is so caught up in collectivist thought and meaningless activity that he cannot be saved. Only a select group of elite traditionalists preserving the traditional Weltanschauung can restore a transcendent order to the world after the fall of this era. An ascetic neoscholasticism is needed to preserve the tradition intact while this cycle comes to an end.
This is the message of Julius Evola in _Revolt Against the Modern World_. In this book, Evola fully dispels the modern myth of progress and reveals it as nothing more than a cover for a decadent society. Evola spends the first part of this book and much of the second part expostulating a traditional world order based on the idea of immanence-transcendence, before it’s break-up at the end of the Middle Ages. He explains how an occult band of knights, members of the warrior caste, preserved tradition in the form of chivalry, during this period. However, with the advent of modern times, this tradition has largely been lost to us. Evola develops a myth of man’s origins in a Golden Age, a Hyperborean race at the pole. A conflict developed between North and South, and between “solar” and “lunar” forms of religion. This conflict was at the heart of medieval Catholicism, and was reflected in the growing separation between priest and ruler. Originally, Evola argues, the Church sanctified the monarchy (the emperor) by a special rite. However, when this practice ended it made possible conflicting national loyalties to split up the medieval picture. With the Protestant Reformation which produced a strong emphasis on individualism more damage was done to the traditional world. As such, the world of tradition was lost and covered up by a world based more and more on utilitarian, hedonist, and ultimately collectivist principles, especially as witnessed in the French and Russian revolutions. This is the grim state of affairs we find ourselves in today. (Evola leaves off with a view of Europe “enclosed in the pincers” of America and the Soviet state, with America becoming more and more collectivist in nature and thinking.)
Man must return to the values which are transcendent if he ever is to create a meaningful life. And, this is precisely what is absent from today’s empty, hollow society. The philosophies of radical individualism and collectivism, nationalism and communism, pervade every aspect of our existence. And, we have lost much. Only by a return to tradition can we hope to achieve a new existence with a newfound meaning.

The Bad War
The book opens with the quote, “History is indeed little more than the register of the crimes, follies, and misfortunes of mankind,” and M.S. King spells out in common, easy to understand language just how true this statement is. We in the West, the descendants of the victors of the greatest war humanity has ever faced, collectively known as the ‘Allies,’ have been led to believe that the world’s freedom was threatened by the evilest man history has ever seen. This man, Adolf Hitler, was hell-bent on taking over the world and subjugated humanity under his cruel and dictatorial rule while viciously and ruthlessly exterminating large swaths of the human population. As we read in, “The Bad War,” King creates an easy to read timeline, from the European Revolutions of 1848 to 1950 during the post-war aftermath period. Each page is illustrated with photographs and various illustrations to help walk us through a century of strategic and planned turmoil and conflict. King brings out the truth of history and presents it in a way that simplifies the information without insulting the intelligence of the reader. In “The Bad War,’ not only do we learn the truth behind the World Wars, but we gain insight into the minds of Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, and FDR; the men who made to decisions that are still affecting us today. Within the pages, we also learn of the men who pulled the strings of these world leaders creating and putting them in situations unbeknownst to the masses. “The Bad War” is a must-read for anyone interested in the truth of history, and how those past events are still shaping the world’s current state of affairs.

ANSCHLUSS is a ground-breaking work that pulls into focus the inter-related political dependencies of North Amerikan Ethno Nationalists, Preppers, and Secessionists. The bold claim that all three rising demographics either succeed together against the onslaught of Globalization or fail individually leaves the reader with few comfort zones. Ronin has pointed at a door that few will open, let alone venture through. Underlying the several themes that run throughout this polemic is the argument that the Radical Right and the Radical Left have more in common than they do not. The last hurdle to bridge is that of race and ethnicity. The hypothetical bridge constructed with an Ecology of Race and Ethno Nationalism takes readers from both camps into the hybrid of a new ideological and political dimension. This is not a book for the ideologically faint-hearted nor for political reformists. It is a must read for all Ethno Nationalists, Preppers, and Secessionists who are prepared to do what they must do as opposed to what they would merely prefer to do. For better and for worse, ANSCHLUSS will go down as a game-changer at these most crucial of times as the Globalist boot begins to come down seriously and hard. This work will be a benchmark for many years to come. SEBASTIAN ERNST RONIN was born in Vienna, raised in Toronto, and lived most of his adult life in Vancouver. As a widower, he now lives a Prepper lifestyle in rural Nova Scotia. He is one of the most respected, though not always liked, secessionist voices in North Amerika. He holds a B.A. Communications, Simon Fraser University. Mr. Ronin has been the driving force and is the President of the National Synergist Party of North America.

There are many works which should be on the bookshelves of all Odinists. What follows is a selection of some of the most important, the most useful, and the most thought-provoking. This is a very brief list of essential books, with a few short comments on their relevance.
Where a book is available in several editions or translations no publication details are given.
Osred, Odinism: Present, Past and Future. Osred follows in the tradition of Australian Odinist leaders, pioneers and artists such as Rud Mills, Evelyn Price, Annie Lennon, Norman Lindsay, Kenneth Slessor and Rayner Hoff, as he relates the eternal Odinist quest of our people to the 21st century. Available for purchase here.
Alan James, The Trial of Loki. This study of the underlying morality of the Norse poem Lokasenna is an antidote to the diminishing number of people who claim some sort of affinity to Loki. Available for purchase here.
Tacitus, Germania. A study of the character and customs of the Germanic tribes in Roman times.
Caesar, The Conquest of Gaul. Includes chapters on the invasion of Germany and notes on the customs of the tribes there.
Virgil, The Aeneid. In Rome’s greatest epic poem, an educated Latin author details the heathen world-view of his day.
Plutarch, Lives. One of the great philosophers of the Roman period, himself a priest of Apollo and a holder of high office under both Trajan and Hadrian, examines the lives and characters of famous Greeks and Romans.
Beowulf. An Old English poem of uncertain date, depicting life in a late-heathen warrior society. Some Christian material has been interpolated, but overall it is very authentic. Other Old English poems that give us vivid insights into the lives of our ancestors are Deor’s Complaint, Wulf and Eadwacer, Widsith, The Wanderer, and The Seafarer. The Battle of Maldon and The Battle of Brunanburgh are two poems reveling in the heroic Germanic spirit, and, it has been said, “… although there are references to Christian virtues, brutally heathen”.
Bede, De Temporum Ratione and to a lesser degree Historia Ecclesiastica. Bede was a Christian writing at a time when some of the English kingdoms were still heathen. He is reluctant to supply any deatils of Odinist practices beyond those which were well known, but much of what he wrote has been confirmed by archaeology.
The Codex Regius, also known as the Poetic Edda. An Icelandic work containing most – but not all – of the poems on which our knowledge of Norse paganism is based.
Snorri Sturluson, the Prose Edda, a thirteenth century text-book for scaldic poets, and another source of information on Norse heathenism. Snorri was a Christian priest writing centuries after the formal “conversion” of Iceland, and therefore all his statements require independent corroboration.
Saxo Grammaticus, Gesta Danorum. Saxo wrote this for an archbishop, and it is heavily laced with Christianity and generally untrustworthy, but it sometimes sheds light on otherwise obscure aspects of our faith.
The Norse Sagas. All were written by Christians, but some preserve relics of heathen poetry and provide other glimpses into heathen practice. For Egil’s Saga we strongly recommend the translation by E.R. Eddison, first published in 1930 by Cambridge University Press and re-published by others since.
Francis James Child, The English and Scottish Ballads. “The religion of the ballads, save for the few poems that deal with the popular Catholic mythology, is absolutely as heathen as that of the Helgi Lays; the sacredness of revenge, remorse, and love, the horror of treason, cruelty, lust and fraud are well given, but of Christianised feelings there are no traces. The very scheme on which the ballads and lays are alike built, the hapless innocent death of a hero or heroine, is as heathen as the plot of any Athenian tragedy can be,” said York Powell.
David M. Wilson (ed.), The Northern World, Thames & Hudson, 1980. Fairly reliable large-format book with chapters by specialists on “Gods and Heroes of the Northern World”, “The Germanic Tribes in Europe”, “The Anglo-Saxon Settlement of England” and many others of interest.
F. J. Los, The Franks: a critical study in christianisation and imperialism. The original 1940 Dutch version was called Karel de Frank, de Groote? This book may be hard to find but it is worth hunting down. It gives precise details of the barbarous christianising crusades of Charlemagne against the northern peoples, and argues persuasively that the Viking raids on Christian monasteries and lands were reprisals.
Lloyd & Jennifer Laing, Anglo-Saxon England. Covers both the heathen period and the early Christian period.
Rupert Bruce-Mitford, The Sutton Hoo Ship Burial, British Museum Publications, various editions. Full details of the excavation of a magnificent late-heathen royal burial in East Anglia.
H. R. Ellis Davidson, Gods and Myths of Northern Europe. This book provided many people with their first insights into our religion.
H. R. Ellis Davidson, Pagan Scandinavia, Thames & Hudson, 1967. From the earliest aechaeological records to the close of the heathen period.
Jakob Grimm, Germanic Mythology. Useful especially for the living folklore that Grimm recorded.
Georges Dumezil, Gods of the Ancient Northmen, University of California Press, 1973. A collection of the great scholar’s essays on the faith of our ancestors. Not necessarily to be accepted at face value.
Brian Branston, The Lost Gods of England, Thames & Hudson, numerous reprints. A stimulating though sometimes eccentric rediscovery of the Anglo-Saxon pantheon that has proved immensely popular.
Kathleen Herbert, Looking for the Lost Gods of England, Anglo-Saxon Books. Rigorous, stimulating and elegantly brief.
Preben Meulengracht Sorenson, The Unmanly Man: concepts of sexual defamation in early northern society, Odense University Press, 1983. A comprehensive study of the heathen north’s negative attitudes to witchcraft, homosexuality and effeminacy.
John Stanley Martin, Ragnarok: an investigation into old norse conepts of the fate of the gods, Melbourne Monographs in Germanic Studies. 1972. Should be in major university libraries. A magisterial summary of all the surviving evidence relating to the final battle.
Jens Peter Schjodt, Initiation between two worlds: structure and symbolism in pre-Christian Scandinavian religion, University Press of Southern Denmark, 2008. Schjodt’s book is long and academic, but it convincingly debunks the simplistic interpretation of Odin as a “shaman” figure.
A. Rud Mills, The Call of our Ancient Nordic Religion, a classic pamphlet by the founder of the 20th century Odinist revival, with “typos” corrected, a 2012 introduction and brief explanatory footnotes. Available for purchase here.
There are many books on the Viking age, but few from a female perspective. Here are two exceptions:
Judith Jesch, Women in the Viking Age, The Boydell Press, 1991. A multidisciplinary survey concluding that the Viking Age “… was not all blood, sweat and tears, even for women”.
Margaret Clunies-Ross, Prolonged Echoes, Vols 1 & 2, Odense University Press, 1994 & 1998. Clunies-Ross takes a female and outmodedly feminist approach to her immense knowledge of the sources. Her case is well-argued and her conclusions can be startling – but never reliable.
