Another good one by Mr. Durham. A very compelling story all the way thru. If you’ve ever served in the military then you probably had a “Col. Gaffner” at sometime during your career. Also, this book is unique in that we are allowed into the lives of both the accused war criminals and the people who have to manage and guard them. I for one never gave this part too much attention. However, it must’ve been a bureaucratic nightmare to keep these ego-maniacs in some kind of order and here is where Mr.Durham does an excellent job. Who would’ve thought the Reichminister would’ve had a somewhat acceptable personality? In another area, a sort of side bar if you will, the story of the U.S. Officer dealing big time in the black market and the house frau being an agent for the government.
I think it was another one of Mr.Durham’s really good books.
