Editorial Reviews


'Kerstin von Lingen's most important book sheds light on a fascinating, cinema-like story. For the first time we learn how Karl Wolff, one of the most prominent surviving SS generals, managed to avoid prosecution with the help of the OSS. This well-researched book is essential reading for everyone interested in the astonishing story of German war criminals in the postwar period.' Sönke Neitzel, London School of Economics and Political Science

'This fascinating study sheds new light on the role of Allen Dulles in Operation Sunrise, the related protection of Nazi war criminals, and the origins of the Cold War.' Thomas Reifer, University of San Diego and Transnational Institute, Amsterdam

Book Description

Kerstin von Lingen shows how Nazi SS-General Karl Wolff avoided war crimes prosecution because of his role in "Operation Sunrise," negotiations conducted by high-ranking American, Swiss, and British officials - in violation of the Casablanca agreements with the Soviet Union - for the surrender of German forces in Italy. Von Lingen suggests that the Cold War started already with "Operation Sunrise," and helps us understand rollback operations thereafter: one was the failure of justice and selective prosecution for high ranking Nazi criminals. The Western Allies not only failed to ensure cooperation between their respective national war crimes prosecution organizations, but in certain cases even obstructed justice by withholding evidence from the prosecution.
