Summary

Summary

It has long been known that Adolf Eichmann, Josef Mengele, Erich Priebke, and many other war criminals found refuge in Argentina. Now, for the first time, a courageous Argentine journalist shows exactly how it was done. This riveting book is the first to map the precise details of the smuggling of Nazis into Argentina, an operation organized with the enthusiastic support of Perons presidential palace. Using previously unseen archival sources, The Real Odessa covers a wide geography Scandinavia, Switzerland, Italy and proves the complicity of the Vatican and the Argentine Catholic Church in one of the great postwar scandals. This is a factual, historical version of the events fictionalized in Frederick Forsyths best-selling novel The Odessa File. An extraordinary piece of investigative reporting. Time
