Great read.....very thorough.,
This review is from: Eichmann: His Life and Crimes (Paperback)
David Cesarani has managed to cut through the fiction and highly emotive views on Eichmann over the last 60 years. Using accounts from his early life and career, pre and post war testimonies, his trial and his own views whilst on the run, this book tries to outline the fact that Eichmann was a product of his time. Eichmann's early life would not have given any insight or clue as to the role he would eventually play in the Holocaust. He was not born the mass murderer he eventually became. This book outlines the processes and events that eventually produced one of the many cogs in the machinery of death that was the Holocaust. Thought provoking.
