I saw the author interviewed on the Colbert Report, and I new I had to get this book! Although it started off slowly, it was a very interesting story, and I looked forward to reading it! It's interesting to note that the events covered in this book made international headlines in 1945, but their story has been all but forgotten today. I only hope that this will be made into a movie soon!

This book reads like a novel, but it's a true story. I learned a ton of WWII history that I'd never heard before. A fascinating read.
