"When Otto Skorzeny, with a handful of German Special Troops, snatched Mussolini from an "impenetrable" mountain prison, he astounded the world- and gave a striking demonstration of the new warfare which extends beyond the lines of battle, beyond even the "rules of war." Charles Foley tells here the complete story of Otto Skorzeny, who was certainly one of the greatest adventurers of World War II. And while the Mussolini episode is the most famous of Skorzeny's exploits it was by no means the most significant militarily or politically. The abduction from Budapest, the confusion spread by the 'disguised brigade' behind American lines in the Ardennes, the destruction of the Nymegen bridge, and the rescue of the 'doomed' German divisions in the Balkans- these and other operations are fully described for the first time in this book, in all their incredible and exciting details. So, too, are the even more ambitious projects hatched by Skorzeny and blocked by an obtuse and high hostile command."
