Neal Bascomb’s ‘The Nazi Hunters’ depicts one of mankind’s most disgraceful crimes against humanity and one of Hitler’s worst instruments / monsters. While I knew of Adolf Eichmann, I had little knowledge of the exact part he played in Hitler’s crimes against humanity and just how Eichmann alluded the hunt to bring him to justice first by blending into the fabric of Europe after the war, and then he escaped to Buenos Aires, Argentina and remained a free man for so long before carelessness exposed his existence.

This book cannot be read by any decent human being without feeling shame. This is not the only disgraceful scar on mankind’s worst behaviour but it must be one of the worst in the last 100 years. Thank goodness he was brought to Israel where he at least had to face his accusers. An informative and gripping story. Recommended reading by Senior-Doctor-at-Bass-Fishing! D. A.

The book is called the Nazi hunter and it mostly talks... How the world war 2 started and it’s talk about there life before and what was happening to them when the nazi happen… and this book helps you to know more about history.
I feel like this book is fun to read because it’s talk about world war 2 and I love to read about world war 2 and I kind of like history when they talk about world war 2 because they were telling the truth and what was happening to them in real life.Those that who love history or world war 2 might want to read this book because it’s telling what was happening before and they telling what happen to them and there mother and father and how they feel when the nazi happened to them and it ’s telling why is this happened and telling how it starts.

This book is about this man capturing criminals responsible for the murder of 11 million of people and the disappearing of 6 million Jews.
how I felt about this book I feel sad because 11 million people died and they were killing people.” shot him in the neck and then reach for the next one and kept firing and firing”.no I haven’t read no other book by this author. yes mostly about killing. and people feels different because it's from a different perspective.
I would recommend this book because it is interesting and.has good detail about the Holocaust.and it talks about how he is trying to protect himself from other who tryna kill him. but he knows so he is undercover so the people won’t kill him.

Nazi hunters by Neal Bascomb is a book about Isreali mossad agents who hunt down a mass murderer on the run.
The story tells of a plan to bring this man to Isreal so he could stand trial.
The agents sent encounter many dangers and get through them with a mixture of luck and skill.
I think you would like this if you like historical non fiction, and suspense novels.

I knew that Adolf Eichmann was put on trial back in Israel in the early 1960s but didn't know how he got there or the story of his trial. This was a well-written story with the details of how Israel intelligence forces located Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina, kidnapped him and flew him out of Argentina. A tense, emotion-filled story that helps the reader understand world history and empathize with the victims.

An interesting read about the post-WWII decade and the attempt to bring certain perpetrators of the Holocaust to justice. This title reads like a spy novel!

"The sight of the lone figure walking through the driving rain burned in Malkin’s mind: This was the man he had come to Argentina to capture." (page 107)
