He is one of the editors of "The men behind Hitler" and was also kicked out of the CDU.

Roeder may be one of the "editors" but he is not the author.
The "Men Behind Hitler" book was an old B1 [Dept 20 lingo for Bureau One or Intell Bureau] project. On one of my trips to GO WW (either 1977 or 1975) Peter Stumpke (who worked in B1 GO WW) showed it to me and told me how he had written it. The B1 book was about 7 x 5 inches and perhaps a half inch thick so what I've heard of this one, they've fluffed it up.
I don't recall the name of the "author" on the jacket of the original B1 version (I don't even know if there was one) but it wasn't Peter, a matter that Peter was somewhat hurt by. After all, he had put in months of work and writing and while he knew it was to be that way, got to him. The idea that OSA would dust it off and try to pass it off as a new book just goes to show again it is the same group.
The other reason the book is not allowed to disappear is that it was done on a secret order from Hubbard and those orders never die.
I'm sure there is a collector somewhere who has one of the old ones. They could give more specifics, re "publisher" and copyright info.
