—Michael Oren, author of Six Days of War: June 1967 and The Making of the Modern Middle East
“There’s no greater satisfaction than seeing someone guilty of great evil being brought to justice, and few people in history have been guilty of more than Adolf Eichmann. Neal Bascomb tells the story of his capture with great verve and a novelist’s eye for suspense.”
—Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold’s Ghost and Bury the Chains
“Admirably researched and relentlessly paced, Hunting Eichmann brings us closer to the manhunt for the Holocaust’s architect than we’ve ever come before. A strangely affecting nonfiction thriller.”
—Stephan Talty, author of Empire of Blue Water
“Deeply researched... reads like a thriller.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
“Chilling, authoritative and timely . . . An exhaustive, well-researched volume that supersedes prior accounts.” —Washington Times

I found this book to be a page turner. I had to keep re-charging my Kindle because I had to know how it all turned out.
Good job, thoroughly researched and very well written.
I read almost everything I can find on WWII, especially relating to the Holocaust as the topic fascinates me. I feel like it somehow honors those who perished in a very small way to learn what I can about their lives and their experiences. In spite of all of the reading I have already done on the subject, this book added plenty of new dimension and understanding.
In particular, I appreciate Bascomb's description of Germany, the Catholic Church, the United States, Great Britain, Argentina, etc, and the roles they took on with regard to finding Nazis after the war, and how the Eichmann trial impacted those approaches. I also gained a new appreciation for the formation of the nation of Israel, and how it came to be.
In addition to appealing to history buffs, this is an excellent book for those who like spy thrillers. It was a page turner and many nights I could not put it down! Well worth the read.
But this book was satisfying, and I liked learning why it is that so many people now have never even heard about Eichmann! EVIL man!
