Description

After it was announced that the twenty month-old son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh was abducted, the entire world grieved for their loss. Seventytwo days later, the body was found in the woods next to a roadway, a short distance from Lindbergh’s house. In 1927, Lindbergh was the first to fly the Atlantic. By 1932, he was perhaps the most famous man alive. A great hero, he was allowed to be the chief architect of the investiga-tion into his son’s kidnapping. In this capacity, the first thing he did was to have the body cremated without an autopsy. Was this done on purpose? Or, was it done for emotional reasons? The authors, Gregory Ahlgren and Stephen Monier delve into the story like no other investigator has done in the annals of this famous-infamous kidnapping.

Some of the contentions here are a bit of a stretch, and the "wood evidence" does appear to be somewhat stronger than the authors have portrayed. Lindbergh''s overall profile and that Lindbergh would have been the number one suspect if the crime were committed today, is spot on. Lindbergh certainly should not have been given free reign to command the direction of the investigation, still a blight on the history of New Jersey law enforcement today. The conclusion that Hauptmann may have been an extortionist but was not the murderer, is of course true. The authors do gloss over some facts that tend to exonerate Lindbergh, and do not address the existence of others potentially involved in the kidnapping crime. So four stars and not five; overall a very good read. However I would recommend ''Cemetery John'' by Zorn as a more comprehensive look at the crime today.

This is a very well researched and well written account of the known facts of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping. However, if you think of Charles A. Lindbergh as a genius and a saint your hackles will go up. Because the authors very convincingly explain what MANY things were wrong with the accepted historical view of the crime. The idea that big time risk taker Lindbergh dropped the baby as part of a prank is a serious possibility.
This book is a wonderful expose of just what is terribly wrong with the cult of celebrity which we so fervently uphold in America. (S''up O.J.?) What do you call a guy who pours water over his wife''s dress at a formal gathering of prestigious and famous people? If he''s some dude from down the street or perhaps your fiance you might call him an Ahole or a jerk. Or crazy. But if he was the first man to fly an airplane alone from the US to Europe you call this creep Charles Lindbergh. How many know that the great aviator never went to college? NEVER FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL? Was essentially ignorant and went about with a chip on his shoulder regarding moneyed people, yet married into an aristocratic family and launched a campaign to humiliate his wife from that moment forward?
There are some reviewers here who say that it is shameful to "tear down" a family with the nasty theories in this book. I say Charles Lindbergh did that himself. He was a strange bird to be sure and if you want to know more about his personality and the way he conducted his life just read this book. And the authors didn''t even know when they wrote it that the great hero was responsible for seven illegitimate German kids! I feel so sorry for the Morrow family. What did Anne do to deserve all this? She bought into the cult of celebrity.

I''ve read everything else on this case, and this book answers all my unanswered questions. At this remove we are left with purely circumstantial evidence, but there has never been a more conclusive body of circumstantial evidence than is presented here against Lindbergh. I am convinced that he did it.

The man was clearly a sociopath.

The only question I am left with is in regard to Anne Morrow Lindbergh. She was a sensitive, highly intelligent woman, and she had to know what a twisted lout Lindbergh was. Her reactions at the time suggest she strongly suspected Lindbergh did it. And yet she stayed with him and had several more children with him. If he admitted to her privately that the child''s death had been a horrible accident (and such an admission is unlikely, given what we know of his psychology), how could she sit by and watch an innocent man be put to death? And yet, if he did not confess to her, how could she continue in the marriage?

Please read this book on behalf of all children whose survival of an abusive parent or sibling is in itself a miracle. Please read this book while remembering those children who did not survive, who were not protected from adults who saw them as less than deserving of life.

The voice of Charles Lindbergh, Jr.and similarly murdered and discarded children lives through the investigators who would not allow lies to predominate forever. Had the investigators of the bogus kidnapping been similarly diligent, the child''s life would probably not have been saved, but the truth might have.

Question: why was this child left unprotected from a parent who had already demonstrated his ability to play savagely inhuman "pranks" on both adults and children? What is the responsibility of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, who knew of her husband''s proclivities? Why should money, celebrity and power be allowed to shield murderers and other violent people?

And what beliefs justify the taking of a child''s life? Did Charles Lindbergh Sr. believe that some are less worthy than others? His subscription to Nazi philosophies make it very clear that discarding a portion of the human race was acceptable to the father of Charles Lindbergh Jr.

Does the violence against so many children in our society reflect the presence of such a philosophy, even in the post World War Two era?

Congratulations, authors Ahlgren and Monier, for demonstrating the worth of the one voice we will never directly hear: Charles Lindbergh Jr.

"Crime of the Century: The Lindbergh Kidnapping Hoax", Gregory Ahlgren and Stephen Monier, Brandon Books, MA, 1993 - ISBN: 0-8283-1971, HC 276 pages plus Footnotes, Biblio. & Sources, Index and 10 B & W Illustration/Photos.9 1/4" x 6 1/4".

The authors, a criminal defense attorney and a Police Chief present their detailed conclusions after conducting extensive research that effectively exonerates Bruno Richard Hauptmann in the kidnap and murder of the Lindbergh baby: -- they construct a rather convincing case indicting the father, Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, for a tragic hoax that began as a repeat of a foolish prank and ended with his son''s death and worsened by his cleverly planned cover-up leading to a wrongful conviction and execution of an innocent German immigrant who was not fluent in English, denied an interpreter and was assigned an alcoholic defense lawyer whose salary was paid by The New York Daily Mirror newspaper in return for worthy news briefings, additionally supplied with prostitutes beginning day one.

Many articles and books write of the innocence and wrongful conviction of Bruno Richard Hauptmann consequent to his inept legal counsel, over-zealous prosecutors, and a farcical trial judge -- but this book is said, by its authors, to be the first to indict the true alleged perpetrator, the Father (CAL) -- one who in today''s society, as a parent, would automatically have been a person of interest if not a prime suspect.

The authors weave their theory of Lindbergh''s guilt after accumulating generous if not overwhelming circumstantial evidence of the hoax kidnapping and complete failure of the criminal justice system to have questioned either parent. Col. Lindbergh was bestowed with social and political esteem excesses which provided absolute reverence and immunity that even extended to the lead state investigator, Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, father of Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf of "Desert Storm" fame.

I''d be one of the first to insist on the necessity of having true heroes and champions to give us and our children lofty goals and/for inspiration, thus I am saddened to read this seemingly compelling book that deconstructs one of them quite focefully, convincingly, and totally. We must remind ourselves, however, that the "Lone Eagle" is not alive to defend himself...and that additional publications would be essential before abandoning this American Icon.

I thought Jim Fisher''s book was fairly objective after I read it. However, after reading Kennedy''s The Airman and the Carpenter I was convinced Hauptmann was not guilty of the murder of the Lindbergh baby. Fisher rarely provided the evidence that leads one to question the accuracy of the conviction. Both books left me wondering who the guilty party was.

The Crime of the Century is the perfect follow up after reading the two books above. The authors detail a very convincing case that there was no kidnapping in the first place. Back in the 1930s, police did not suspect parents in the disappearance of their children. Lindbergh''s unprecedented hero status made him untouchable. He took control of the investigation right from the start and even threatened to shoot any police officer who disobeyed his orders. How many people are aware of Lindbergh''s cruel practical jokes and the fact that he hid his son in a closet to fake a kidnapping just two months prior? He sat at the prosecution table every day of the trial. His actions the day of the kidnapping were never questioned. He simply said he did not remember all his actions that day.

Why were no fingerprints (even from household members or the baby himself) found in the baby''s room? Why did no one else but Lindbergh hear a noise outside? Why didn''t the dog bark? Why did no one see the ransom note the first time they entered the baby''s room. Why did Lindbergh tell Anne THEY stole our baby when the note had not yet been open to reveal the number of kidnappers?

The book details how unfair the trial was and how the defense rarely had access to the evidence the prosecution would present. There was no credible evidence that Hauptmann was even in New Jersey that day. It is appalling how the prosecution suppressed evidence that would weaken their case.

Think about the four deaths caused by the actions of Lindbergh, the misery suffered by Hauptmann''s family, and the millions of dollars paid by NJ and NY tax payers for the trial, investigations, witnesses, and reward money and you can not help see the arrogance the man had.

I can''t understand the negative reviews here. I read the book twice and it is well written with compelling evidence that Lindbergh was guilty of his son''s death. Read the book with an open mind and see for yourself.
