Fredrik Vejdeland, as the publisher of Unbroken Warrior – The Richard Scutari Letters, offers a review of this book and tells more about both its content and purpose.

Recently, Unbroken Warrior – The Richard Scutari Letters was launched in Borlänge, Sweden. This is a book that was actually worked on for many years, but that neither Henrik Holappa nor Magnus Söderman – the two driving forces behind the project – even regarded as a book subject until the end of last year. Richard Scutaris response to their request on whether he would consider writing an autobiography was, given what Scutari been through and how much he sacrificed, more than modest:

I am not much on talking about myself. I also have no desire to write a book. If I had done anything worth telling others, I would already have written a book about myself.

Holappa and Söderman let the matter rest, but only until it was shortly thereafter realized that the book was actually already written in the form of the countless letters Scutari had sent them, so as a foundation for the book one had therefore a lot of letters on which to base it upon, but also some articles that never had previously become public knowledge. It was with a new request that instead of an autobiography perhaps one could release a book of correspondence, that one was able to convince Scutari that his life’s deeds and thoughts will actually encourage others to want to fight.

The book’s purpose
When the book was being compiled, it was clear early on that one thing was for sure; it must be printed in English. Possibly also in Swedish at a later stage, but in all cases the original version was to be in English. Unbroken Warrior – The Richard Scutari Letters has as a result become Nationellt Motstånd Förlags first English language book. The reason for this is primarily because there are many white people in the world who are inspired by Richard Scutari and that we would do them a disservice by publishing the book in a language that most of these people do not understand, as english is an almost universal language for them all.

Magnus Söderman writes the following about the book in his preface:

By publishing these letters, articles and quotations by Richard Scutari, and by giving some of his friends the opportunity to speak about him, it is my hope that his words will stir your soul and that you will step up and be valuable beyond comprehension as a link in destiny´s chain for the survival of our Aryan race; in the fight for the Fourteen Words.

On the book’s structure
A little more than half of the book is written by Richard Scutari himself in the form of letters to Henrik Holappa and Magnus Söderman as well as Scutaris own essays, selected quotes, and an extended interview conducted together with Söderman. The remaining text material deals with Richard Scutari personally and it includes a foreword by both Holappa and Söderman and an epilogue written by the two together. In addition some of Scutaris friends have also had an opporitunity to give their view of Richard Scutari, by each writting their own article about him and they are various friends of his which include, to name a few, Ron McVan, Erich Gliebe and Vicki Ni Cathail.

Unbroken Warrior is neither an autobiography or biography in the ordinary sense, but rather something in between. Since several people have had their views on Scutari made public in the book and also were allowed to interpret his personality and deeds. This clearly raises the value of the book, even if the most important value found in the book is in what Scutari himself has to say.

Both Great and Small
The book can be seen as both a mix of great and small topics. That is to say, Scutari both introduces and expresses the deeper aspects of philosophy and religion, while at the same time he was discussing strategic issues and even devotes a large part of his time towards providing advice and guidance on a personal level for both Holappa and Söderman.

Scutari feels far from being a distant school teachers who want to impress with plugging in as much factual information as he can in a student ’s head. Rather, he committed himself – and also was allowed to do so – to becoming involved in Holappa and Södermans private lives and by doing so tried to strengthen them and lead them right to life.

Henrik Holappa, who at the time of his first letter was 17 years and a ”young man with many questions”, describes his relationship with Scutari in the following manner:

Corresponding with Richard Scutari, I grew up mentally, and I felt and I still feel that whatever questions– trouble I had, Scutari had an answer or advice. I never got the feeling that I would have asked something stupid.

Unbroken Warrior also contains a lot of theoretical issues and is in fact a gold mine for anyone who wants to understand the National Socialist ideology and philosophy, and several aryan myths and history. Scutari is a National Socialist, adhering to the laws of nature, and highlights Savitri Devi as a prominent figure in the post-worldwar two time period. Among the recommended books by Scutari one can find Mein Kampf, the Lightning and the Sun and the Imperium, while he also highlights the works of Mao Tse-tung and General Giap. Scutari has a way of writing that is very similar to the late orders-member and his Comrade David Lane, so those who appreciate Lane will probably also learns to enjoy reading Scutaris thoughts.

Richard Scutari was once adhearing to the faith of ChristianIdentity (CI), but he abandoned it when he realized that Christianity is foreign and that there were too many issues that ended up in what he calls the ”gray zone”, which became a pile of unanswered questions that ”did not make sense in the real world”. Scutari read Voice of our Ancestors, by Wulf Sörensen, and was captured by the books message. After struggling between the two philosophies Scutari became a Wotanist, something he believes is the same as being a National Socialist.

I am a Wotanist and you can´t be a Wotanist without being a National Socialist. Actually, it would probably be more correct to say that my religion is National Socialism and that I honor my ancestors through Wotanist practices. To me, it is all one and the same, so in my case, religion is politics and vice versa.

As being a National Socialist and Wotanist is very much about building ones own strength and character, and becoming an important and constructive part of the collective Folk. Richard Scutari can be seen as one of the foremost persons when it comes to ”live as a National Socialist and he does so by practicing martial arts, yoga, study and continually inspire others to fight.

A recurring theme in Scutaris letters and articles are otherwise Carl Gustav Jung and his work on Wotan and the collective subconscious. Jung believed that Hitler was a manifestation of Wotan and the National Socialist Germany meant that the Aryan soul took its first steps towards emancipating itself from Semetic shackles. Just as Savitri Devi viewed Hitler so does Richard Scutari see Hitler as an avatar for our race.

The Order
Anyone who is interested in The Order will also be able to read about this in the book and it will probably be a few things of interest to one or another criminologist and crime writer. Scutari discuss his own position in The Order, his relationship with Bob Mathews, the Orders aims and objectives, and more of the hitherto unpublished interview. He also comments on what others have said about The Order, for example, the book Silent Brotherhood, but also from various people who think that they possess all the answers. When answering a direct question about the Orders tactical error Scutari gives, before he explains what that actually was successful or less successful, this response:

When analyzing the actions of The Order, hindsight is a powerfull tool that often makes people, who do not have the testicle fortitude to do anything themselves, feel superior. The actions of The Order need to be analyzed so that our mistakes and successes can be learned from. But when analyzing The Order, remember that it was made up of average common citizens who had to learn by doing. […] As far as tactical errors, The Order made many minor and a few big ones. […]
