The author was a French Resistance fighter when he was captured by the Nazis in 1941 and sent first to Fresnes prison in Paris, then to Neue Bremm, and Buchenwald. He describes how he survived, through his determination, his faith in God, and his conviction that the 'real enemy'--Hate, greed, and cruelty-was within one's self. . ..................... ........................ 'Unlike many other personal memoirs of Nazi concentration camps, D'Harcourt relates how the different prisoner groups vied for authority and control. For the last two years, or so, D'Harcourt was being watch closely by the camp Communists who were afraid of him, due to (a) his aristocratic background and (b) his Roman Catholicism. Being a prisoner made D'Harcourt a target of every insane S. S. guard who sadistically enjoyed beating anyone, near-by, who happened to be walking by. Being a Roman Catholic, however, made him a target of the power plays and plots of the Communists who wanted to control the camp, the assignments to soft jobs and death-dealing tasks. All of this took place while the Nazi guards adopted a lassiez faire attitude towards the internal working of the camp. The details of the power struggle presented by Pierre D'Harcourt are rarely repeated in other chronicles of the camps, making this book, 'The Real Enemy', tend towards uniqueness.' -- John P. Rooney
