    One thought on “Hitler's Werewolves: The story of the Nazi resistance movement, 1944-1945”

    1. Interesting story about the one mission the clandestine Nazi group the "Werewolves" executed. The one mission that we know of anyway. Six operatives were dropped behind allied lines toward the end of the war and walked back into the first German city captured by the Americans and executed the German acting as mayor and collaborating with the Americans.
