THE NAZI HUNTERS, by Neal Bascomb

The story: Adolf Eichmann was the evil mastermind behind the killing of more than five million Jews during World War II. At the end of the war, he slipped past the Allies and escaped to Argentina, where he lived on the lam for fifteen years. This is the story of the team of spies, forgers, diplomats and airline pilots who tracked him down, kidnapped him, and brought him back to Israel to stand trial.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:If you’re one of those kids who likes reading books about “real” people and events, you’ll like this one! Bascomb’s carefully researched book is more like a thriller than like the dreaded “historical fiction”– and anyone who reads it will come out not only with a healthy respect for what spooks can do when they’re working for the good guys, but also for how much the world has changed in the 50+ years since this story took place.
