Description du produit

Revue de presse

'A riveting and passionate account of one of history's most fascinating - and morally significant - secret operations' Michael Oren. (Michael Oren)

'There's no greater satisfaction than seeing someone guilty of great evil being brought to justice, and few people in history have been guilty of more than Adolf Eichmann. Neal Bascomb tells the story of his capture with great verve and a novelist's eye for suspense.' Adam Hochschild. (Adam Hochschild)

'It's an extraordinary gripping and disturbing read' Mail on Sunday. (Mail on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Hunting Eichmann is the first complete narrative of a relentless and harrowing international manhunt.

When the Allies stormed Berlin in the last days of the Third Reich, Adolf Eichmann shed his SS uniform and vanished. Following his escape from two American POW camps, his retreat into the mountains and out of Europe, and his path to an anonymous life in Buenos Aires, his pursuers are a bulldog West German prosecutor, a blind Argentinean Jew and his beautiful daughter, and a budding, ragtag spy agency called the Mossad, whose operatives have their own scores to settle (and whose rare surveillance photographs are published here for the first time). The capture of Eichmann and the efforts by Israeli agents to secret him out of Argentina to stand trial is the stunning conclusion to this thrilling historical account, told with the kind of pulse-pounding detail that rivals anything you'd find in great spy fiction.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Humanization of Adolf Eichmann 27 juillet 2011
Par R.M.T. - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I very much enjoyed reading Mr. Bascomb's book. True to it's title, "Hunting Eichmann" offers a detailed accounting of the efforts of Mossad in tracking down, capturing, and bringing to justice the world's most wanted criminal at that time. The book is easily read, offers little known and detailed information and perspectives from the participants involved, and holds the reader's attention.

I was surprised that my perception of the Adolf Eichmann I thought I knew changed after reading this book. Since my teens in the late 1960's, I have read numerous books on the Third Reich and the Holocaust, including the great works of Sir Martin Gilbert, William Shirer, and Nazi insider Albert Speer. As a result, I saw Adolf Eichmann through a concrete looking glass... a 20th century boogey man; a black and white, one dimensional monster of epic proportions whose organizational skills, robotic ability to follow orders, and sociopathy made him a perfect choice for the tasks he eagerly carried out and was to eventually answer for.

Although the focus of this book was obviously the manhunt, Bascomb managed to humanize Eichmann through short biographical flashes, at least as much as one can humanize the inhumane. He did so by offering insight into the flawed man that Eichmann was... a true case study in contradictions: a ne'er do well who found ambition and drive at the worst possible moment. A philandering husband revered by his long-suffering wife. A stern father, both loved and respected by his sons. A man able to extinguish a million lives with the mere stroke of a pen, yet who shuddered at the prospect of his own execution. A once proud member of the Third Reich's inner circle who, within 15 years of the war's end, stood before his captors in "worn and dingy socks and underwear" while being searched after his capture. And it is this "humanization" of Adolf Eichmann that makes him truly terrifying.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent, comprehensive WWII tome; added depth & dimension to history for me 19 mars 2016
Par K Kaufman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Wow! I just finished this book and really enjoyed it. I appreciate how Bascomb went to so many different sources to cull his information and put it together into one captivating tome.

I read almost everything I can find on WWII, especially relating to the Holocaust as the topic fascinates me. I feel like it somehow honors those who perished in a very small way to learn what I can about their lives and their experiences. In spite of all of the reading I have already done on the subject, this book added plenty of new dimension and understanding.

In particular, I appreciate Bascomb's description of Germany, the Catholic Church, the United States, Great Britain, Argentina, etc, and the roles they took on with regard to finding Nazis after the war, and how the Eichmann trial impacted those approaches. I also gained a new appreciation for the formation of the nation of Israel, and how it came to be.

In addition to appealing to history buffs, this is an excellent book for those who like spy thrillers. It was a page turner and many nights I could not put it down! Well worth the read.

This is a thoroughly resarched and well written work which is informative and gripping at the same time. The book humanizes all the major players, and to some extent, even Eichmann. The documentation of tragedy and triumph is compelling, and the author is able to convey the bigger picture of why this venture was of much more significance than the mere capturing of a war criminal.
Although there is some description of the horrors of the Holocaust, the author does not dwell on gory detail, but focuses on the mind set and motivation of the principles.
This is a fascinating and highly recommended read.

An eloquently authored and deeply researched book. A fantastic read with plenty of facts I thought I was aware of but was not. Eichmann, like so many of his ilk, denied any wrong doing, pathologically claiming like so many before and since "I was following orders". He was not a bright nor intelligent individual but rather was an excellent organizer. Sadly, two of his sons "inherited" his sick right wing racism. What I wonder, separates those who actually spend the time to think about hatred from others whom give intellectual consideration to its wrongs. I don't know, but we continue to see this behavior. The Jews were left with no choice whatsoever in 1945. Their neighbors, "friends" and community leaders and members had looted their homes and destroyed whatever future they may have had in the countries to which they were born. Israel was their only choice. So many were told by their neighbors they were not wanted back. After surviving the worst nightmare imaginable, they were forced out of the countries in which they were born - and this is post Nazi. Without doubt, the human animal is the most demonstrable, violent, reprehensible of the species. We are the only species that engages with satisfaction, in torture, murder and the desire of complete annihilation of our own species. And the ultimate kick in the gut, is that the allies, in particular, USA and Russia, happily accpeted Nazi's into their countries in order to further rocket and space science. Nazi's continued to rule fro high seats of power in East and West Germany. So much for justice!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Do NOT buy this book unless you have a week of uninterrupted free time to read it because you wont put it down. 13 septembre 2015

Do NOT buy this book unless you have a week of uninterrupted free time because you wont put it down. Better than most novels. Finally fisnihed it. Absolutely dones NOT stop. While truly brilliant in its own right, it would have been nice if the author had included more about Eichmann's crimes, but that would have been a topic for another book - a very minor criticism. Sadly, Eichmann, who by that time had become something of pathetic figure, was killed judically in a sterile execution chamber in Isreal. I personally would have liked to have seen him dressed up in his SS uniform, taken him back to Auschwitz, and hung him on the gallows there - which still would have been infinity better than what he deserved. Or maybe it would have been better to put E. in an Isreali jail for a couple of months before executing him....In any case, a truly thrilling book to read.
