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.

Author Neal Bascomb writes a very interesting and informative book on the capture of infamous Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. The basic circumstances of Eichmann’s capture makes for thrilling reading, but Bascomb’s research and thorough explanations of Eichmann’s eventual capture add additional interest and insight on this subject matter. The book offers detailed analysis of Eichmann from his time hiding out in Germany at the end of World War II to his escape, hiding, and eventual capture in Argentina.

Some additional highlights of the book feature information on the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad whose agents captured Eichmann in Argentina. Bascomb also incorporates analysis and information on the variety of people who helped hunt for Eichmann and became suspicious of his whereabouts after the Second World War. This book is strongly recommended for those who are looking for more details on Eichmann’s capture or have a general interest in Nazi war criminals.
