Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, I am familiar with it. "Behemoth" was written during World War 2 and is one of the first analytical works on Nazi-Germany.

If I may recommend you another great book of this early era, I would like to point your attention to Ernst Fraenkel's "The Dual State" "Der Doppelstaat".

Also worth reading is Hannah Arendt's great Origins of Totalitarianism

One last recommendation: Deborah Lipstadt published her account of her trial against Holocaust denier David Irvin in the great book:

"History on Trial: My Day in Court With David Irving," by Deborah E. Lipstadt (Echo, 2005) $25.95.

It contains the expert statements on the origins and the dynamics of the Holocaust, by i.e. Peter Longerich and is a fascinating book. For more on the book, go to her blog
