Skorzeny was one of the most daring figures of the 20th Century. His exploits included the rescue of Mussolini from his mountain prison, a brief affair with Eva Peron, a blackmail attempt on Winston Churchill and the kidnapping of the son of the wartime dictator of Hungary. Eisenhower declared him "The most wanted man in Europe". Charles Whiting, who actually met Skorzeny, pieces together this truly remarkable story.
“Fluently hits the high points: Mussolini’s mountaintop rescue, intrigues with the Gehlen organization and OSS and CIA, postwar affair with Eva Peron.”
