"Epstein's biography of Greiser is careful and rigorous." --Holocaust and Genocide Studies
"This is the best work on Nazi Germany that I've read in a long time. Far from being a pedantic yet scholarly work, Model Nazi is eminently readable for the popular market, and thus hard to put down. I can't recommend it highly enough!" --The Military Advisor
"Drawing on German and Polish sources, Epstein is the first Western historian to have written a biography of this major war criminal...Our gratitude to [her] for bringing this sordid life to our attention." -- Jewish Book World
"A valuable new biography." -- The New York REview of Books
