At the end of World War II, an estimated 30,000 Nazi war criminals fled from justice, including some of the highest-ranking members of the Nazi Party.
From the Sunday Times: In 1945 Europe teemed with persecuted and destitute humanity, millions of people displaced by war. Creeping among them were the architects of their distress, Nazis who had ruled Europe with unspeakable savagery and now found themselves outcast. Natural justice demanded retribution. Yet the allied machinery for identifying and arresting war criminals, other than the most notorious, was woefully inadequate...Walter's account of what happened is first-rate.
From the Sunday Telegraph: The depth of research here is both impressive and convincing...Walters has managed to weave this mass of information into an absorbing and thoroughly gripping whole..[He] proves emphatically that the reality of Nazi hunting is far more fascinating than the myth.
