Book Review: The Nazi Hunters by Neal Bascomb

Image from juniorlibraryguild.com


This book starts out by telling the reader about the involvement of a man named Adolf Eichmann in the Holocaust. They set out and try to capture this man and take him to trial for his wrong doings. I would recommend this book to others because the action keeps you into it. Above all that though, it is a non-fiction book, so you will be learning as well as being entertained. You would like this book if you like… history and action.
