I always wanted to know what a Nazi fugitive life was like, where did the all the gold go and how did they get from Germany to South America and it was in this book I found out. The first book on World War II the Holocaust that I read. Very well written with a lot of informational footnotes. I highly recommend this book for reading.

This book seemed to take no time at all to complete. It was well written. For me... I found it to be a page turner. This is a book that I recommend if you are a world war two buff like I am.

This book focuses on the hunt for mengele and not the horrible crimes he committed at auschwitz; although they are mentioned so that the reader may understand why so many spent so much time pursuing the "angel of death". After a hundred pages I felt there was nothing left to tell, yet there was three hundred more pages. I read the last 220 pages in one sitting and was late for work because I could not put this book down.

This isn't a straight-up biography. The authors spend one chapter on Mengele's life before Auschwitz, and one (albeit very detailed and horrific) chapter on his activities in Auschwitz, and the rest on his life as a fugitive and the decades-long hunt for him. But accounts of Mengele at Auschwitz can be got from numerous other sources. I was deeply distressed by how many near-misses there were, how many times they could have caught him and didn't. It's no consolation that he was lonely and miserable most of his time in South America.If you want to know the details of Mengele's crimes, you'd be better off reading memoirs and stuff about Auschwitz that talk about him. But the pursuit of him, and the pursuit of other Nazi war criminals as detailed in this book (Eichmann was kidnapped off a Buenos Aires street by Mossad agents, for example), makes for interesting and illuminating reading.
