"One cannot write too highly of Martin Gilbert's industry and literary abilities in making the world aware of the fullness of this hideous tale...A brilliant book" Spectator "Auschwitz is now a name of horror without parallel...Why did it remain relatively unknown for so long? Martin Gilbert has set out to explore this contradiction" Observer "A story that needs to be remembered. It is here told by a real historian...whose style is the more moving by being objective and controlled" -- Hugh Trevor-Roper The Times "An unforgettable contribution to the history of the last war" Jewish Chronicle
