New year books- 1


Simon Dunstan and Gerard Williams “Grey Wolf, The Escape of Adolf Hitler, The Case Presented” ( Sterling, New York, 2011)

This is really just a load of old rubbish. Hitler never got to South America, and the effort to argue in this book  that he did so, by way of Denmark, Spain, and the Canary Islands is just silly. But this curious production does have the advantage of drawing our attention to informal German colonialism in South America, especially Argentina. This is a subject which does deserve to be written about, and would make a story well worth telling, despite the fact that  escaped Nazis played only a very small part in it. This though book is much best avoided, although it does have a weird fascination!.
