The first complete narrative of the pursuit and capture of Adolf Eichmann, based on groundbreaking new information and interviews. Bringing Eichmann to justice would require a harrowing fifteen-year chase stretching from war-ravaged Europe to the shores of Argentina. Alternating from a criminal on the run to his pursuers closing in, Hunting Eichmann follows the Nazi as he escapes two American POW camps, slips out of Europe and builds an anonymous life in Buenos Aires. A persistent search for Eichmann evolves into an international manhunt that includes a West German prosecutor, a blind Argentinean Jew and his beautiful daughter, and the Mossad, whose operatives have their own scores to settle. Presented in a pulse-pounding, hour-by-hour account, the capture of Eichmann and the efforts by Israeli agents to secret him out of Argentina and fly him to Israel to stand trial bring the narrative to a stunning conclusion. Condition: Very good.
