My name is Howard W. Campbell, Jr. I am an American by birth, a Nazi by reputation, and a nationless person by inclination.

It is a curious typewriter Mr. Friedmann has given to me and an appropriate typewriter, too. It is a typewriter that was obviously made in Germany during the Second World War. How can I tell? Quite simply, for it puts at finger tips a symbol that was never used on a typewriter before the Third German Reich, a symbol that will never be used on a typewriter again. The symbol is the twin lightning strokes used for the dreaded S.S. /.../.

'Solomon rebuilt the city,' said Arnold, 'but in 732 B.C. Tiglath-pileser the Third burned it down again.'
'Who?' I said.
'Tiglath-pileser the Third', said Arnold. 'The Assyrian,' he said, giving my memory a nudge.
'Oh,' I said. 'That Tiglath-pileser.''You act as though you never heard of him,' said Arnold.
'I never have,' I said. I shrugged humbly. 'I guess that's pretty terrible.'
'Well ' said Arnold, giving me a schoolmaster's frown, 'it seems to me he really is somebody everybody ought to know about. He was probably the most remarkable man the Assyrians ever produced.'
'Oh,' I said.
'I'll bring you a book about him, if you like,' said Arnold.
'That's nice of you,' I said. 'Maybe I'll get around to thinking about remarkable Assyrians later on. But right now my mind is pretty well occupied with remarkable Germans.'
'Like who?' he said.
'Oh, I've been thinking a lot lately about my old boss, Paul Joseph Goebbels,' I said.
Arnold looked at me blankly. 'Who?' he said.
