I recently spent some time in Bavaria and wanted to learn more about what happened after WW II. This is a new book that details how Eichmann, the man who planned and carried out rounding up Jews in Poland, Hungary, Austria and Germany, managed to live in Germany for 5 years after the end of the war and then move to Argentina and live for another 10 years. A bank of dedicated men from Israel tracked him down, captured him and returned him to Israel. He was put on trial, convicted and then hanged. A fascinating book, very well researched and written. Highly recommend it for any student of WW II.
