Reviews
"Shelley Emling's book about my father is very interesting, especially the second half about the end of the Third Reich. Today's readers, perhaps mostly the younger generation, are not, in general, very aware of this important period of the Second World War. The rivalry and jockeying for position with the führer to the bitter end is well depicted and astonishing. How my father -- with the help of Heinrich Himmler's confidante, Walter Schellenberg -- managed to convince the head of the Gestapo and the concentration camps to overlook his sworn allegiance to Adolf Hitler is well narrated and very important knowledge for readers. An essential read for those interested in the Nazis, the Third Reich, and the end of the Second World War. Well done!" -- Bertil Bernadotte, Folke Bernadotte's son
