Product description


'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 that story of his capture with great verve and a novelist's eye for suspense' Adam Hochschild. 'A riveting and passionate account of one of history's most fascinating - and morally significant - secret operations' Michael Oren. 'A superbly researched story of brilliant deception and deadly intrigue as comprehensive an account of the operation as we're likely to get. It's an extraordinarily gripping and disturbing read.' Mail on Sunday.

Product Description

Adolf Eichmann was the operational manager of the genocide that dispatched six million European Jews to the gas chambers. Escaping US custody in 1946, he hid in various locations in Germany before absconding in 1950 via a 'ratline' escape route to Argentina, where he lived, undisturbed, for the next decade. On 11 May 1960 he was captured in an operation of breathtaking skill and daring by a team of Mossad agents in a Buenos Aires suburb. Smuggled out of Argentina to Israel, Eichmann was indicted there on charges of crimes against humanity, and hanged on 1 June 1962.

Part history, part detective story, part international thriller, Hunting Eichmann brings the story of the fifteen-year search for Eichmann more thrillingly, more accurately, more completely to life than ever before. Superbly researched and relentlessly paced, Hunting Eichmann brings us closer to understanding the architect of the Holocaust than even before - a man whose terrifying ordinariness came to embody the 'banality of evil'.
