Hunting Evil


Title: Hunting Evil by Guy Walters

Category: Nonfiction, History, War World II, Investigations

Review: This was one of the best books on the aftermath of War World II, concerning the Nazi criminals, that I have ever read. Mr. Walters does a great job with this book. Some of the most famous Nazi villains are mentioned and are tracked down in here. Such as: Eichmann, Bormann, Mengele, etc… Mengele has been one of the most popularized Nazi villains and we find out that he died, surprisingly, not the rich man that most people thought he was. Besides some of the popular Nazi villains that were tracked, there were others that were mentioned in the book. Also, the author mentions the Nazi hunters as well. He, in particular, mentions Simon Wiesenthal. Wiesenthal is a very famous Nazi hunter, but you learn in this book that most of his claims are false. He did help catch a few Nazis, but not the 100s that he claimed. Mr. Walters takes you through the different hunts making you feel that you are there. You see through the eyes of both the Nazi and the hunter(s). I enjoyed this book because I learned a lot of things about those Nazis (especially Mengele) that I never knew before. I think you will enjoy this book if you want to go beyond the Nuremberg Trials and learn about the hunting of those Nazis that got away.
