A lot of nonsense in this book . Conjecture and outright lies . My favorite was the author stating that Heinrich Himmler the head of the S.S. , was captured by Americans at the end of the war . I have read many previous accounts that ALL stated he was caught at a BRITISH checkpoint by 3 Ukrainians who were being used as "auxiliaries" by the British, then turned over to a British Major who interrogated him. Nowhere in ANY of the accounts were Americans mentioned . There were other discrepancies as well I noted . I have read extensively over the last 40 years about WW2 . As the years pass , more "truth" is revealed as documents become "unclassified" . I think the author simply took "fanciful" news clippings and went from there . Not worth the time to open the cover .
