I liked this short book. It covers an aspect of the war that I never knew about. My father and father-in-law both told me about the last year of the war and their personal experiences (on both sides of the line). I found the research done by the author to be very credible and some of the personal aspects ring very true to the "fog of war". I am also a veteran and can relate to the chaos and mistakes that are made. He paints a very interesting portrait of Otto Skorzeny both pre-war and post war. It would not be hard to see this as a movie, but I enjoyed the short book and read it in one sitting. This will give me an incentive to read "The Losing Role" by the same author.
