I appreciate books that open up a period of history that I previously knew little about. The great challenge with World War II, of course, is the vast amount of information that could be written on.

This book does a great job of detailing the search and capture of Adolf Eichmann, but does it without hype. It reads like an intrigue mystery. Of course, unlike a lot of intrigues, in this case the results were already known: It is common knowledge that Eichmann was caught. So Bacomb's detailed history of him from youth to the end of his life is excellent. It is almost like we are looking through a window at his life.

If it wasn't for the vast amount of reference notes in the back, I'd have to think he was making some of this stuff up! But it's not historical fiction or sensationalized truth (to make up for knowledge gaps); it's the whole truth put forth in a truly excellent way.
