"Its brevity makes it no less stomach churning. The monolog describes Hoess's rise in the SS directly under Heinrich Himmler's tutelage and shows Himmler as the most brutally efficient of functionaries, so vile and so lacking human sensibilities as to be in danger of being rendered as a cartoon character." — Library Journal

"Amann, via his editorial craftsmanship, is able to capture an utterly soulless individual whose respect for life and capacity for authentic love were destroyed at a very early age . . . Jurg Amann has done a great service by making Hoess's memoir available to students of the Holocaust but, most importantly, to the young of the current and future generations. The Commandant is a must read for all social scientists and clinicians seeking a graphic and compelling self portrait of the evolution of ideological and bureaucratic sociopathy." — Jewish Book World
