    One thought on “Skorzeny, Hitler's Commando”

    1. The most interesting part of this book dealt with Skorzeny's post-war activities. Unfortunately the book was handicapped by Infield's uneven wiring style, superfluous repletion and sloppy mistakes that undermined the integrity of the book.

    2. Lively and detailed account of Skorzeny, a larger than life figure on the German side of WWII. At times it lurches into exaggeration and unsupported assumptions, but it's a quick and interesting read.

    3. A fascinating read of a former Nazi who had a pivotal, but little acknowledged influence on much of post-war history.
