Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard have a gold mine of a formula for best selling novels. I’d not read the past few after Killing Reagan as I thought that one was a bit of a stretch. I heard good review of Killing the SS so I picked up a copy to read. I was not disappointed. The book chronicles “The Hunt for the Worst War Criminals in History.” Their unspeakable crimes horrify us to this day.
You know most of the names; now see what happens to them after the war. One thing that astonished me was how openly some of these murders lived after the end of World War II. Many barely changed their name.
“Thick dossiers on these “war criminals” have been compiled by American and British intelligence agencies. The special admonition IMMEDIATE ARREST has been stamped next to their names on this most wanted list. If caught and convicted, the punishment will be death. Execution will be swift. If they are caught.”
““If we succeed,” Isser Harel has commented to one of the operatives, “this will be the first time in history that a court of justice of the Jewish people will judge a man who slaughtered multitudes of Jews. That is why I see in this action a humane and moral significance that cannot be applied to anything we have ever undertaken before.”
