If you are looking for a hyped up version of the capture of Eichmann, filled with James Bond like scenarios, then this isn t the book for you.Instead Zvi Aharoni gives his own factual account of the events in a clear concise manner Granted it isn t superbly exciting, but then it doesn t have to be The content and events within speak for themselves.To give the reader a complete picture of historical events and the subsequent reasons for finding Eichmann, Aharoni takes us back to the beginning and where it all started for him and his family He takes us through the pre WW2 build up of the NS Party, the existence of camps many years before the war began Introduces us to some of the well known war criminals and their rise to power Inevitably he also gives some examples of the horrific atrocities that were done unto the many millions of innocent human beings during the Nazi regime.The author delves into how so many war criminals of that era managed to not only escape, but remain free and unpunished It is a slap to the face to realise that many of them never actually left Germany and were integrated into society with different names, supported by big name industries or guided overseas via the Vatican and many helping hands.What emerged quite strongly for me from this book, was the fact that despite all the apparent alleged Odessa connections, that Eichmann lived as a working class male in the time up until his capture Unable to survive successfully without the extreme dogma and discipline of the Hitler regime, he failed at almost everything after the war That supports two theories, that Odessa was a myth blown out of proportion and that Eichmann was one of those people who evolved in his sadistic tendancies due to the convenient circumstance of opportunity and power.Talking about convenience, it suited all countries that harboured these criminals to ignore their past, because a high number of them were well educated professionals in their fields Although quite factual and unemotive, the author manages to introduce a clear picture of what really happened during the pursuit and capture Now and again the language structure is a little awkward, due to translation, but it doesn t detract from the reading.Finally I think the most important message was the point Aharoni made about the Holocaust denial The supporters of this lie are on the rise Academics and professionals, who have the audacity to besmirch the memories of not only the millions of innocents who were murdered, but also that of the survivors and their families.Anyone who perpetuates the lie that the Holocaust never happened is as guilty as the criminals who committed the crimes, and they deserve to be treated with the same disdain. Operation Eichmann was a surprisingly powerful read It begins with a detailed account of the author and his family s escape from Nazi Germany in the 1930s, with much background information about the politics behind the anti semitic measures taken in Germany It also describes in much detail Eichmann s career and private life More insight is offered about the establishment of the state Israel, Mossad and the internal decisions to hunt down Eichmann, finally the search itself and the repercussions.This book works incredibly well in this cleverly brought together range of topics It shows us the personal small and bigger tragedies before and during the holocaust but only as background for the investigator Having read many books on the Holocaust I never cease to be shocked at the many stories that can be told about this dreadful era.Yet we move on from those horrific tragedies to the escape story of Eichmann and the lengthy operation that leads to his capture There is so much to learn from this book, information about the reception of the capture in Germany and in diplomatic circles, the reaction of Eichmann s family and many unbelievable quotes from the man himself. I very much enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down.The book seems a fair account of how the infant Israeli secret service located and captured Eichmann There was plenty of background to both the operation and on Eichmann himself Much of this a revelation in itself, particularly how Eichmann managed to get out of Germany and to Argentina The Vatican It is not a book full of secret agent type stuff but instead is a genuine look at what is of course weeks of boring surveillance and planning, though it is well enough written to make this interesting.If you have some interest in post war Europe, German war criminals and the whole issue of how we dealt with that situation then this is a recommended read.
