Summary
A thrilling spy mission, a moving Holocaust story, and a first-class work of narrative nonfiction.

This Sydney Taylor Book Award- and YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award-winning story of Eichmann's capture is now a major motion picture starring Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley, Operation Finale !

In 1945, at the end of World War II, Adolf Eichmann, the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution, walked into the mountains of Germany and vanished from view. Sixteen years later, an elite team of spies captured him at a bus stop in Argentina and smuggled him to Israel, resulting in one of the century's most important trials -- one that cemented the Holocaust in the public imagination.

This is the thrilling and fascinating story of what happened between these two events. Illustrated with powerful photos throughout, impeccably researched, and told with powerful precision, THE NAZI HUNTERS is a can't-miss work of narrative nonfiction for middle-grade and YA readers.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This true story of a group of Jewish men brought together to capture and bring to justice a notorious Nazi war criminal takes place 15 years after the end of WWII. Adolf Eichmann, who had been in charge of eradicating the 725,000 Jews from Hungary and was discovered living in Argentina, became the target of the Mossad, a new Israeli secret service intelligence agency. Eichmann's capture proved to be a hair-raising maneuver, as the Argentinians were not sympathetic to the cause, and any slight misstep could result in irreparable damage to both this endeavor and to the Israeli government. Bascomb has shortened and changed much of the language of his successful 2009 adult title Hunting Eichmann, but kept every bit of the suspense. This version includes a list of participants at the beginning to assist readers in keeping straight the many individuals involved in the scheme. This is a splendid example of fascinating storytelling blended with significant historical events. Periodic black-and-white photos expand the account.--Enos, Randall Copyright 2010 Booklist"
