I am NOT an expert on WWII or Hitler. I have been fascinated by both because it is so hard for me to understand how one person could do to another what the entire nations of Russia, Germany and Japan and to some extent Italy did to other people. In the end, over 50,000,000 people (that’s MILLION) died because of WWII and the leaders of these nations. Obviously that number includes people of the Allied nations as well, both military and civilians BUT does not include people of all nations who were wounded.
When I read this book, I was compelled to continue reading it and found it difficult to put down. The book reads like a novel and some readers may claim it to be a novel. I found it to read more like an extremely detailed history book of WWII and then of what may or may not have happened to Adolph Hitler. I found it very well documented as to the history of the War up until what most believe to be the death of Hitler in the bunker. Since my elementary school days of the 50s I was taught that Hitler committed suicide in the bunker and his body was burned. Since then there have been numerous documentary TV shows and books that have indicated that there has NEVER been any forensic evidence proving that the two bodies found outside the bunker to be Hitler and Braun as originally claimed. The fact that Stalin, Churchill and Eisenhower all said they did not believe Hitler died in the bunker and that governments continued to search for Hitler has always left me doubtfil about the “story” of Hitler’s death as it was taught.
As said, if you read the book with an open mind and follow the details, you, like the authors, may come to the same conclusion that it was MORE plausible that Hitler did in fact escape the bunker and did go to Argentina as described in the book. It is difficult to come away with a different conclusion yet I am certain others will read the same book and will come to a different conclusion. I am just not sure why. I came away with the belief that there is more evidence in the book confirming the two author’s conclusions than the lack of evidence that support the more famous history books written shortly after the war and taught in my elementary and junior high schools’ history classes.
There was one UNBELIEVABLE paragraph in the book regarding the number of trains and the number of train cars that were used to transport the TONNAGE of the wealth of millions of people whose belongings were confiscated by Germany that were required to ship it back into Germany; it was beyond my comprehension. That is NOT meant to suggest the information was not true just my ability to actually comprehend the numbers because they were so HUGE.
If History does repeat itself, then everyone should read this book if for no other reason than to read about the history of WWII. No one should ever want to see that repeated. Still, in 2018, there is fighting around the world that evidence of the lessons of WWII have never been learned or they have been forgotten. People want to be free. Other people want to control power over those who want to be free and are prepared to take that power through violent behavior. Grey Wolf is about those types of people, that amount of power AND about the “spoils of war” that when you read the numbers, if you are like me, they WILL BE over our collective heads. Frankly I had never thought about the billions of dollars of personal property that changed hands during and after the war.
Who should read this book? I would first recommend it to anyone with an open mind but actually there is no one that I would suggest should not read it over the age of 10 or 12. Would I buy the book as a gift? Actually yes but only for a select few people that might be interested in history. Would I read it again? Probably not in its entirety but certainly parts of it.
