520 |a When the Allies stormed Berlin in the last days of the Third Reich, Adolf Eichmann, the operational manager of the Final Solution, shed his SS uniform and vanished. Bringing him to justice would require a harrowing fifteen-year chase stretching from war-ravaged Europe to the shores of Argentina. Hunting Eichmann is the first complete narrative of this story, based on newly declassified documents and meticulous new research. Alternating from Eichmann on the run to his pursuers closing in on his trail, Hunting Eichmann follows the Nazi as he escapes two American POW camps, hides in the mountains, slips out of Europe on the ratlines, and builds an anonymous life in Buenos Aires. Meanwhile concentration camp survivor Simon Wiesenthal's persistent search for the monster gradually evolves into an international manhunt that includes 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 personal vendetta to settle. Presented in an hour-by-hour account, the capture of Eichmann and efforts by Israeli agents to smuggle him out of Argentina for one of the twentieth century's most important trials bring the narrative to a stunning conclusion. - Publisher.
