5.0 out of 5 stars war crimes, 21 Jan 2014
This review is from: Hunting Evil: The Nazi War Criminals Who Escaped and the Quest to Bring Them to Justice (Hardcover)
This remarkable book is correctly described as the definative study on what actions or non actions were taken to trace the estimated 30,000 Nazi criminals who escaped to the mountains of Austria or South America after the war.
The author gives a good account of some sucessful outcomes eg. Eichman and Barbie but also details the failures often due to the conivance of US and Uk officials plus th Catholic church who protected some of the worst offenders.
The author is very critical of Simon Wiesenthal the"famous" Nazi hunter who turned out to be a self seeking,publicity mad buffoon and he also exposed the the so called Odessa escape route as a mythe.
A ten star book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and in depth look at a quite disgraceful period of modern European history., 3 Feb 2013

This review is from: Hunting Evil: The Nazi War Criminals Who Escaped and the Quest to Bring Them to Justice (Hardcover)
Well written and in depth look at a neglected part of post war history. Especially galling reading of Mengele escaping scot free and dying at his own leisure. Only one of many not to face justice of any kind for some of the worst crimes in history. Something like 90% of the perpetrators of the holocaust escaped justice completely. Some did very well for themselves both financially and in society, while their victims never recovered or regained any of their stolen property. The story of l'Oreal comes to mind. For anyone with an interest in this subject a highly recommended read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Old prejudice, 4 Jan 2014
This review is from: Hunting Evil: The Nazi War Criminals Who Escaped and the Quest to Bring Them to Justice (Hardcover)
This is an anti-German book and the author supports hunting down ninety five year old men and putting them on trial for things they were forced to do. If the soldiers didn't do what they were told, they would have been killed.
