Operation Eichmann was a surprisingly powerful read It begins with a detailed account of the author and his family s escape from Nazi Germany in the 1930s, with much background information about the politics behind the anti semitic measures taken in Germany It also describes in much detail Eichmann s career and private life More insight is offered about the establishment of the state Israel, Mossad and the internal decisions to hunt down Eichmann, finally the search itself and the repercuss Operation Eichmann was a surprisingly powerful read It begins with a detailed account of the author and his family s escape from Nazi Germany in the 1930s, with much background information about the politics behind the anti semitic measures taken in Germany It also describes in much detail Eichmann s career and private life More insight is offered about the establishment of the state Israel, Mossad and the internal decisions to hunt down Eichmann, finally the search itself and the repercussions.This book works incredibly well in this cleverly brought together range of topics It shows us the personal small and bigger tragedies before and during the holocaust but only as background for the investigator Having read many books on the Holocaust I never cease to be shocked at the manystories that can be told about this dreadful era.Yet we move on from those horrific tragedies to the escape story of Eichmann and the lengthy operation that leads to his capture There is so much to learn from this book, information about the reception of the capture in Germany and in diplomatic circles, the reaction of Eichmann s family and many unbelievable quotes from the man himself At times slow as it recounts the operation in full, but it was interesting to hear from the source how the operation went down, including any mistakes that were made along the way. I very much enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down.The book seems a fair account of how the infant Israeli secret service located and captured Eichmann There was plenty of background to both the operation and on Eichmann himself Much of this a revelation in itself, particularly how Eichmann managed to get out of Germany and to Argentina The Vatican It is not a book full of secret agent type stuff but instead is a genuine look at what is of course weeks of boring surveillance and p I very much enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down.The book seems a fair account of how the infant Israeli secret service located and captured Eichmann There was plenty of background to both the operation and on Eichmann himself Much of this a revelation in itself, particularly how Eichmann managed to get out of Germany and to Argentina The Vatican It is not a book full of secret agent type stuff but instead is a genuine look at what is of course weeks of boring surveillance and planning, though it is well enough written to make this interesting.If you have some interest in post war Europe, German war criminals and the whole issue of how we dealt with that situation then this is a recommended read Well Worth the ReadThis book is important as it documents the capture of Adolf Eichmann from the perspective of the agent in charge of the operation It should be read with other books on the subject including Eichmann before Jerusalem by Bettina Stangeth and Hunting Eichmann by Neal Bascombe The film, Operation Finale is a good compliment to this book. It s obvious that OPERATION EICHMANN is a powerful, thrilling read, the subject matter all but guarantees it but what I like about the story is it s lack of sensationalism with regards to the manhunt There s a lot of books out there about Adolf Eichmann, many of which either don t know or for some reason don t tell the full truth but Zvi s is a first person account wonderfully paced and operationally fascinating There s a moment in the book that highlights that both sides need to learn from hi It s obvious that OPERATION EICHMANN is a powerful, thrilling read, the subject matter all but guarantees it but what I like about the story is it s lack of sensationalism with regards to the manhunt There s a lot of books out there about Adolf Eichmann, many of which either don t know or for some reason don t tell the full truth but Zvi s is a first person account wonderfully paced and operationally fascinating There s a moment in the book that highlights that both sides need to learn from history in order to not repeat it and it s incredibly haunting A daring saga of a pursuer and the pursued The nefarious architect of Endlosung , Himmler s crony and a Hitler fanatic Adolf Eichmann was personally responsible for the extermination of millions of Jews After the German defeat, this mass murderer takes flight under a multitude of disguised identities A team of Shin Beth and Mossad Nazi hunters under the command of the irrepressible Isser Harel and including Zvi Aharoni the co author relentlessly follow Eichmann s trail with a sole motive A daring saga of a pursuer and the pursued The nefarious architect of Endlosung , Himmler s crony and a Hitler fanatic Adolf Eichmann was personally responsible for the extermination of millions of Jews After the German defeat, this mass murderer takes flight under a multitude of disguised identities A team of Shin Beth and Mossad Nazi hunters under the command of the irrepressible Isser Harel and including Zvi Aharoni the co author relentlessly follow Eichmann s trail with a sole motive to mete out justice What follows is a breathtaking tale of ingenuity and incredulity extending from Berlin to Buenos Aires A scintillating M.U.S.T R.E.A.D Published 1996Author Zvi AharoniRecommended for fans of history novelsEdition KindleIn this book Zvi Aharoni gives his very own factual account on Operation Eiochmann it is a very power read The author goes into great detail to fill the reader in on all of the background and his families escape from Nazi Germany It is very well paced and very well written It is a book that you will find hard to put down I recommend this for any readers who enjoy History books.
