Actual articles from the notorious sensationalist journal that was a forerunner to the scandal sheets and tabloids of today: “Ridiculous alt-history fun” (Booklist).

As the Allied armies closed in on Berlin, the Nazi high command scrambled to escape their shattered city.

In this landmark exposé by the legendary National Police Gazette, the truth is finally told. As peace fell across Europe, two U-Boats made mad dashes for Argentina, remaining underwater for weeks at a time to evade detection.

Founded in 1845, the National Police Gazette was a pioneering magazine dedicated to sport, sin, scandal, and crime. From 1877 to 1922, its editor was Richard Kyle Fox, whose ironic—and sometimes fictional—treatment of the news was a welcome departure from the stuffy tone of the mainstream press. In a time when boxing was illegal, the Police Gazette covered it like a legitimate sport, paving the way for its acceptance at the heart of American sporting life. The Police Gazette continued publication until 1977, and never lost its sense of lurid good fun.
