5.0 out of 5 stars Debunking the legends
This is a factual account of Operation Grief (Griffin), the German false-flag operation during the Ardennes offensive of late 1944. The operation and its leader, SS Lieutenant Colonel (SS-Oberstürmbannführer) Skorzeny, are the stuff of legend.

Anderson debunks the legend, and presents the facts, insofar as they can be determined (he notes in his blog...

3.0 out of 5 stars Personal.
Interesting and methodical insight. Have enjoyed reading this book, very different to what I would normally read but commendable. Will search another book similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Debunking the legends, 28 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sitting Ducks (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
This is a factual account of Operation Grief (Griffin), the German false-flag operation during the Ardennes offensive of late 1944. The operation and its leader, SS Lieutenant Colonel (SS-Oberstürmbannführer) Skorzeny, are the stuff of legend.

Anderson debunks the legend, and presents the facts, insofar as they can be determined (he notes in his blog that "Doomed secret agents don't write journals or reports and their commanders didn't keep intricate records"). The result is a compelling piece of work that reveals the unvarnished truth of the operation's planning and execution.

This is an easy to read, well researched piece, covering a part of history that is well known, but about which few factual accounts have been written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent short work, 20 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Sitting Ducks (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
I have always been interested in Operation Greif and other than Skorzeny's self serving stuff there is little out there. This does add to the pool of info and although it seems to lean on Meuse First and Then Antwerp(see my other reviews) there was a fair bit I had not come across before. Bearing in mind the minimal cost it represents excellent value and is also a good introduction to the subject.
