School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 8 Up-These serviceable biographies dissect the lives of two of history's most notorious men. Mengele, who performed horrendous experiments on concentration camp prisoners during World War II, escaped to South America, becoming one of the most hunted Nazis. Hussein is portrayed as a conniving and ruthless dictator who masterminded his own ascent to power in Iraq; the book includes his overthrow, but ends before his capture. Both books include numerous source notes and substantial research, as well as black-and-white (sometimes graphic) photos, maps, and reproductions.-Carol Fazioli, formerly at The Brearley School, New York City Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
