Interesting story about the one mission the clandestine Nazi group the "Werewolves" executed. The one mission that we know of anyway. Six operatives were dropped behind allied lines toward the end of the war and walked back into the first German city captured by the Americans and executed the German acting as mayor and collaborating with the Americans.

After the war the operatives were captured and put on trial by German authorities after the allies declined to prosecute. The shooter died while

Skillfully told tale of how the sentiment (on the Nazi side) that led to the World War II - of unquestioning obedience to orders and a visceral hatred against anyone stepping out of the line - still persisted well into the last days of the conflict

A bit dry, especially in consideration of the fascinating topic. Still, it is an interesting read for those interested in the post war years and how they shaped the modern era.

An interesting book that highlights a sensational, but fairly inconsequential episode in the closing months of World War Two. Whiting focuses entirely on operation carnival and its five murderers, until the end when the story widens to discuss the efforts of various high level nazi officials to disappear into the population and avoid justice. It is structured in a way to make the relatively thin material stretch and to inject some drama into the known outcome of the mission. The structure is eff ...more
