"Rigg has written another compelling book on the Holocaust. Part action thriller and part indictment, Rigg not only narrates the incredible story of the rescue of the Lubavitcher Rebbe from almost certain death in wartime Poland, he probes the Rebbe's much more problematic post-rescue role. Certain to generate controversy, his work demands to be read."--Robert M. Citino, author of The Wehrmacht Retreats: Fighting a Lost War, 1943
"Rigg's meticulously researched account of the wartime rescue of a Hasidic rabbi by German officers, working secretly with US intelligence, is a revealing look at the intricacies of diplomatic maneuverings and the complex, sometimes contradictory motivations of human actors."--Sue Fishkoff, author of The Rebbe's Army: Inside the World of Chabad-Lubavitch
