NAZI HUNTERS: HOW A TEAM OF SPIES AND SURVIVORS CAPTURED THE WORLD'S MOST NOTORIOUS NAZI by Neal Bascomb. Scholastic, 2013.
The story behind the capture of Adolf Eichmann is the focus for this piece of narrative nonfiction. Pacing suitable for a grand spy adventure novel, spies whose identities are tied in no small part to their feelings about Eichmann and Hitler and the Holocaust, all combine to create nonfiction that will draw readers in and hold them captive. Other suggestions for books include HITLER YOUTH by Susan Campbell Bartoletti and the GN biography of Anne Frank by Colon and Jacobs.
