Journalist who worked in America, London, Paris, and Dublin.
Did research for 2 years prior to writing book.
Wrote the book to bring awareness about the Holocaust so it was never repeated.
Wanted to voice the triumph of arresting the worlds most wanted still-living Nazi officer.

The Plan
Illegally transfer Eichmann from Argentina to Israel.
The Mossad used 150th anniversary for the revolution against Spain to smuggle more agents in Argentina.
May 11th, 1960- Mossad and agents captured, drugged, and flew Eichmann to Israel.
Argentina argued for him to be taken back but a trial was deserved because he was identified as a international war criminal.
Adolf Eichmann
Named "Competent Official"
Head of Operations for the Nazi Final Solution
More cruel some say than Hitler
Ricardo Klement was his disguise
Fled to Argentina to escape being killed for his role in the Holocaust
Recommendation
This book really made me feel like I was in the shoes of a Holocaust survivor. It was a touching story to hear. Since it was a spy mission it makes the book even more interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to hear about the capturing of a gruesome man.
by Neal Bascomb
December 15th, 1961 Adolf was found guilty in Jerusalem 15 charges and sentencing him to die.
He was hung near Tel Aviv on May 31st, 1962.
