This review is from: Hanns and Rudolf: The German Jew and the Hunt for the Kommandant of Auschwitz (Kindle Edition)
Lots of publicity about this book and positive reviews but to be honest I don't know what the hype is all about. A well written and researched account of two differing people's lives - in effect lightweight biographies of both but nothing more. Interesting but I expected more.

It does actually tell something new about how Hoess was captured. And it does put the " victorious side" in the name of Hanns Alexander in a light of personal flaws, major ones, which absurdly enough makes one compare to such a monster as Hoess. Could a personality like Hanns have ended up on the other side of the fence, given the cirmumstances? Yes, he could....
