Attempts to wish or pray your way out of it will do you no good, and all the chains in the world can't keep you from attacking other people. Like "Dracula," "The Wolf Man" is built on legends and stories that have existed for thousands of years. But silver bullets, the full moon, wolfsbane and the incurable curse of lycanthropy have more to do with Hollywood than with history. In stories and folklore, there are all kinds of ways to become a werewolf, and the process isn't always involuntary or even permanent.
In spite of these differences, most werewolves in movies and old stories have something in common. They are dangerous, cunning and even evil, and they inspire fear and dread.
WerewolveSS by Jerry Ahern
So what is it about the idea of turning into a wild animal that's so intriguing and alarming? Why do these stories exist in so many cultures around the world? Do werewolf stories have any foundation in medical or scientific fact, or are they simply the product of imagination? In this article, we'll explore how people become werewolves and what happens during the transformation.
We'll also look into what werewolves represent in different cultures, and we'll examine the medical conditions and historical events that have led some communities to believe that werewolves really exist. Characters in "The Wolf Man" break off wolfsbane stems and attach the flowers to their clothing. This isn't a very good idea. Wolfsbane is extremely poisonous -- the word "wolfsbane" probably comes from people using it to poison wolves. Horticulturalists recommend wearing gloves while working with the plant and thoroughly washing your hands afterward. Jul 14, Philip rated it did not like it.
My second attempt at reading this one, and this time I made it through to the end. So what caused me to abandon it the first time? The structure. He scrinched up his eyes. I also have to mention one other thing that made me laugh. And 2 why would you make up several gallons of said antidote and leave it lying around where anyone could find it? A good idea that never transforms into something with real bite.

Feb 22, Toni rated it it was amazing. Going through the lists here, I see this couple has written myriad books but WerewolveSS is the only one I ever came across. I've had this novel since and I'm certain I read it then but I just re-read it and don't remember a bit of it from before.
I see this as a new book.

In , somewhere in Europe, Evan Hardy and year-old Hugh MacTavish, members of a combination American-British group, are the only survivors of an attack by SS soldiers which is so horrifying and unbelievable, they falsify their reports of what happen.
Years later, when at a college football game, Evan sees a man he recognizes as the leader of that deadly squadron, but still young, looking as he had that day in , he confronts the man, and that's his undoing.

A few days later, Evan is found dead of a heart attack and his daughter Dannie decides to discover the truth She manages to get in touch with Hugh MacTavish who is now in some section of the British Secret Service and is abruptly and horribly thrown into a life and death struggle as creatures controlled by the man, Dr.
Stein, come after her.
With the help of David Mallory, Mac's young protege, Dannie returns to America, there to begin her struggle to discover the truth. What she learns is more unbelieving than the worst horror novel Hitler's Werewolf unit of the SS was exactly that. Injected with the blood of a genuine Russian werewolf, the young men of that unit were able to transform into beasts, enabling them to kill without fear of destruction since they heal automatically when wounded. Near immortal, they are also unable to age, and now they're after the three people who can reveal their secret to the world, that the SS is about to rise again, and turn the world into a holocaustic deluge of blood and death.
Other than being an engrossing horror novel, the one highlight I found is that two of the main characters are so-called senior citizens.
Evan is in his 70's, and Hugh, considerably younger is around 65, yet both maintain enough strength and stamina to fight to the death, whether it's with weapons or fists. It's an exciting tale, full of physical action, and a brief bit of romance which doesn't detract from the overall plot a bit. The plot does seem to follow a few cliches throughout and I can't go into further detail without giving Spoilers , but in actuality that doesn't hurt the story at all.
My only complaint is the opening ending which indicates either a sequel or merely leaving the reader wondering. All in all, it's a bloody, gory, adventurous, twist on an equally bloody gory bit of history, and a very good horror read. This novel is owned by the reviewer and no remuneration was involved in the writing of this review. Feb 22, Tony-Paul Vissage rated it it was amazing.
Nazis and werewolves When Evan Hardy, one of two survivors of a Werewolf SS attack back in sees the man who lead that attack 30 years later, he doesn't hesitate to confront him. Of course the man denies that he's the man Hardy fought and accuses the old man of being insane and walks away.
When Hardy is found dead a few days later, his daughter Dannie refuses to believe he had a heart attack and seeks out his old friend and fellow survivor, Hugh MacTavi Nazis and werewolves When Hardy is found dead a few days later, his daughter Dannie refuses to believe he had a heart attack and seeks out his old friend and fellow survivor, Hugh MacTavish in England to help. Soon Hugh, Dannie, and Assistant David Mallory are up to their ears in werewolves chasing them all over England and back to the states.
They learn Stein is exactly who he says he isn't, and is planning an all-out massacre by activating his troups and slaughtering everyone in the area. Since the bite of these creatures can also turn someone, there are soon many more werewolves who weren't part of the original group but are now bloodthirsty beasts ready to join and kill. It's a long, hard, and bloody fight, and there are a few cliches to be found along the way, but all in all, this is a very thrilling, if slightly disturbing story.
The method of activating the werewolf transformation is a unique one. My only objection throughout the whole thing is Dannie's choice of what to wear when being chased by werewolves intent on one's instant destruction. She chooses a blouse and skirt! Why, in the name of anything, would a woman about to be running for her life wear a skirt?
There's plenty of climbing over rooftops, down fire escapes, diving into icy rivers, and crawling over fences. Each time, she has to hoist up her skirt, or clasp it tightly out of the way so she can perform these athletic feats and while I read, all I could think was Was this to show her independence, or simply her stubbornness, that she was going to remain feminine, even if it meant she tripped over her skirt and got bitten in the bargain? It was one plot device that should've been corrected because all it revealed was a lack of commonsense and a great deal of stupidity.. Other than that, I enjoyed the book and recommend it.

Sep 05, Andrew Marcec rated it did not like it Shelves: action , creature-feature , snoozers , werewolf. This book is just absolutely horrendous. I only got about 30 pages in before I had to just stop and put the whole thing down for good. This book reads like a hastily written rough draft.

There are even contradicting sentences in the same paragraph! Shame on this publisher for putting this book out there Aug 21, Amber rated it it was amazing. This is one of the better, serious werewolf books that I've read. I love the concept of tying it into Hitler and the fact that werewolves can basically live until their killed.
Great book, really enjoyed it. Jan 09, Jeff rated it it was amazing Recommended to Jeff by: My brother. Werewolves and Nazis should say it all. Aug 26, Beauregard Shagnasty rated it liked it.
