" This book is about a group of spies some survived or lost someone in the holocaust they have got an assignment to get a vicious SS guard Adolf Eichmann. This book is amazing the plot is phenomenal and the characters are cool this is a real story too so it's much more amazing. When a group of Holocaust spies receive the most special task ever, catch an SS guard how will they plan this out when will it happen. " said.

"The story of the hunt for and capture of Adolf Eichmann, one of the major organizers of the Holocaust.

A suspenseful narrative, non-fiction that had me on the edge of my seat even though I knew how it ended up. The restraint shown by some of the hunters who lost family members directly due to Eichmann was amazing. What wasn't amazing? Eichmann's audacity to ask for clemency after being sentenced to hang for his crimes.

Interesting factoid - Eichmann's son, Horst, is/was a neo-Nazi leader in Argentina following his father's death. Gross.

" The book The Nazi Hunters by Neal Bascomb is a crazy story about how a small team of spies were able to bring one of the worlds worst war criminals to justice. The criminal that the spies are chasing is Adolf Eichmann the man in charge of the slaughter of Jews during World War 2.
This book is a crazy story about a group of Jewish spies on a mission to capture this mad man. This book is a page turner and would recommend this book to anyone interested in World War 2 history. This book was great and I would read it again.

"The pursuit and capture of Adolf Eichmann after 15 years as part of the Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews was a profound and thrilling read. The secret plan was thoroughly planned by Jews who personally survived the Holocaust and lost loved ones in the concentration camps and the government officials of Israel. A highly recommended read for young adults and adults as a reminder of the atrocities by Hitler and the Germans against the Jews. Six million were exterminated and many were shot, beaten, starved and worked to death in addition to the furnaces of the concentration camps." said.

"I sat in on a panel at Book Blogger Convention and the editors in the panel were really talking up The Nazi Hunters: How A Team Of Spies And Survivors Captured The World’s Most Notorious Nazi by Neal Bascomb and so after the panel, I decided I could not live without reading this book — because you know things like that happen to me, I essentially decide I NEED to read a book or heaven forbid what will happen. I was also very interested because I’ve spent much of my college career taking classes centered around World War II and the Holocaust. Things I cannot fathom are interesting to me.

"The book, “The Nazi Hunters is a very interesting book about spies who kidnap a former SS(Secret Service) officer who worked for the Nazi’s. The SS officer (Adolf Eichmann) was constantly hiding and changing house from country to country. Eichmann was very hard to track because he had many fake names which were almost impossible to track. When the found Eichmann the practiced over and over again to snatch him once and for all.
I enjoyed this book, it was interesting and it had so much information that most people did not know about the Nazi’s. In every chapter and scene they had the date and time posted on it. I like how the author lead up to the climax. I like how the story was calm but it could be better with a huge gun fight. I definitely would recommend this book to my fellow classmates.

"This is a really well done teen version of Hunting Eichmann: How a Band of Survivors and a Young Spy Agency Chased Down the World's Most Notorious Nazi which is an adult non-fiction book. The author follows the story of the Israeli team which found Eichmann in Argentina and kidnapped him so that he could face trial in Israel for the murder of millions of Jews. It was very interesting to read this after having read Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil. Arendt's view of Eichmann is unreservedly that he was such a ridiculous fool that he's more disturbing than monstrous. It was interesting to see that the Israeli team felt so disturbed by him and in much the same way as Arendt but without her level of contempt. The book was structured very well and the whole story felt more like reading a spy thriller than a historical account, which made it very exciting and one that I think teens could get excited about reading. There are plenty of photographs illustrating the different parts of the story and I had a really difficult time putting it down once I'd started. I'd certainly recommend it to any teens who get into true spy or thriller stories!" said.

"Adolf Eichmann was one of the world's most notorious Nazis as the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution. Essentially, he organized the transportation of the Jewish people to ghettos and concentration camps. This work of narrative nonfiction begins with the background of Eichmann's role in the genocide. Then, in 1945, Eichmann disappeared from Germany and went into hiding. Due to the bravery of more than a dozen individuals, Eichmann is captured and put on trial for the world to view.

This is an excellently researched work of nonfiction. I was amazed at the number of intricate details that went into the investigation and capture of this criminal. Neal Bascomb (who is also the author of HUNTING EICHMANN, the adult version of this book) was extraordinarily honest in this text. At times, I had to slap myself when I felt pity for Eichmann, as I tend to search for the humanity in murderers. Bascomb doesn't glorify the details---his account is genuine and based on numerous interviews of individuals who were connected to this hunt. I tend to become easily disengaged when I read nonfiction, but this book kept me hooked, as I wanted to read more about the courage and bravery of the Nazi Hunters. I highly recommend this book.
