Confronting Nazi evil is the subject of the latest installment in the mega-bestselling Killing series
As the true horrors of the Third Reich began to be exposed immediately after World War II, the Nazi war criminals who committed genocide went on the run. A few were swiftly caught, including the notorious SS leader, Heinrich Himmler. Others, however, evaded capture through a sophisticated Nazi organization designed to hide them. Among those war criminals were Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death” who performed hideous medical experiments at Auschwitz; Martin Bormann, Hitler’s brutal personal secretary; Klaus Barbie, the cruel "Butcher of Lyon"; and perhaps the most awful Nazi of all: Adolf Eichmann.
Killing the SS is the epic saga of the espionage and daring waged by self-styled "Nazi hunters." This determined and disparate group included a French husband and wife team, an American lawyer who served in the army on D-Day, a German prosecutor who had signed an oath to the Nazi Party, Israeli Mossad agents, and a death camp survivor. Over decades, these men and women scoured the world, tracking down the SS fugitives and bringing them to justice, which often meant death.
Written in the fast-paced style of the Killing series, Killing the SS will educate and stun the reader.
The final chapter is truly shocking.
I have read all the Killing books. I enjoyed them all. Bought this one as soon as I saw it. Very disappointed. I don’t feel the topic or maybe how it was written warranted a Killing book. Kept wanting more and then it just ended. I have missed O’Reilly on Fox, but I won’t be so quick to buy his next book. Just didn’t work for me. Sorry. Maybe it should have been Killing Hitler and The SS
Amazing like the rest of them
Reads like a US News article
I have enjoyed almost all of the “Killing . . .” Books. This one, however, is based on hear-say, rumor, and propaganda. Some of the stories — such as the actions of the dogs at the women’s camp — sound like a bad movie script, made up.
The book is only fair, not up to the “Killing . . .” Standards.
