The Baader Meinhof Complex – Wikipedia

This could easily have been a long and riveting mini-series. After struggling through the beginning of the book, I felt like there were pieces to the puzzle all over the place but no coherent image of what the puzzle looks like.

And once they reached baaser extreme, many found it impossible to come back to the center. But then, Baader is arrested. As grisly footage of the maimed and the dead appears onscreen, Meinhof’s press statements rationalizing the bombings are heard in voiceover. The film is based on the German best selling non-fiction book of the same name by Stefan Aust. The last edition is from However, this good book is kept from being a komlpex book, firstly by its seemingly haphazard approach, jumping from one incident to another, very rarely linking them together.

Meticulously researched to the point of nearly drowning within the chaos of the terrorist activities of the Red Army Faction. Strangely enough, the one I could feel sympathy for, was Ulricke Meinhof who believed in the cause, but seemed to be troubled by it too.

The founders of the R. And for much of the time the RAF – unorganized as they were – managed to hold the upper hand with their sophistication. The subject was very interesting, but the book is only so-so. A film about them, or any other popular terrorist movement, has to account for both facts if it seeks to explain not just their crimes but also their existence.

Der Baader Meinhof Komplex

I do remember reading and hearing about the RAF in the news during the 80s. I read this book baafer I had seen the film, and read John Le Carre’s Absolute Friends which follows a similar storyline. The importance of compromise is baadfr always in the specifics of the compromise but that compromise often blunts the extremes that people are willing follow. The book reads a bit choppy–like a series of news articles all put together in one book.

Homann leaves the group after overhearing Meinhof, Baader, and Ensslin asking Fatah to kill him. Even so, Ensslin and Baader obtain two way radios and continue smuggling orders outside.

Der Baader Meinhof Komplex by Stefan Aust

Only when respected journalist Ulrike Budh Martina Gedek begins collaborating with them do they become a serious movement who will reign terror on the German state for a decade, and whose army will continue to fight even after the leaders are imprisoned and martyred.

The book also offers a glimpse of the hypocrisy of revolutionaries themselves. Kompleex explains, that they, like Meinhof, were “in control of the outcome until the very end”.

The reader hardly needs a word-for-word and minute-by-minute account of minor details. Aust has also been involved with the screenwriting for the film with the same name as this book, which I think is very good too. Meinhof, suffering from depression and remorse over the deaths caused by their bombings, is subjected to sadistic emotional abuse by Baader and Ensslin, who call her a traitor and “a knife in the RAF’s back”.

When cornered, she refuses to go quietly, initiates a gunfight, and is fatally shot by the policemen’s return fire. For the Baader-Meinhof gang, the fight itself is the cause; however, there is no thought as to when the fight will be won. The author does a splendid job at remaining fairly objective while binding facts to the RAF’s belief-system, thus creating a bird’s-eye view of the entire matter.

Business classes teach that often negotiations are not about claiming a piece of a pie, but expanding the pie so that everyone gets their fill. She informs Boock that Baader has forbidden any more attacks on “the people” and enlists his help smuggling weapons into Stammheim.
