This is the third print of "SS-Orgier", from 1983. The first print came in 1972 (publisher H-Son). There's no author credited, but the cover (and I guess, photo) is produced by Göthe Sundgren. It's pure porn, mixed with facts about SS and their crimes. I've just read a few pages here and there, very funny and graphic - but the best thing with the book is this amazing cover. At first glance there's nothing to react to - except the title and subject of course :)

But then you see that this nazi is the most seventies-nazi ever existed. The typical glasses, probably there to make the actor more anonymous and the haircut, which is far away from neat and nazi! I might be unknowing about WW2 and the design of the clothes, but this is the first time I've seen a blue nazi-uniform.

But the main star on this cover is this slightly naked woman, who's thrown at the bed - probably shot down by the evil blue nazi. This looks at first more normal than the nazi behind her, until you realize that she's cross-eyed! I guess it was spur of the moment, she decided it would look more dramatic, more DEAD if she was cross-eyed from shock and violence. Well, I'm not sure that was such a good idea.

I'm very interested in getting in contact with Göthe Sundgren, if he's alive and kicking. I've noticed his work on other erotic works published in Sweden, and I guess maybe he worked for H-Son or as a freelance photographer for erotic books and magazines.
