were trained in sabotage, assassination, weapons training, and stealth, for the purpose of going behind enemy lines to disrupt the Allies as best they could, to help protract the war until the Western allies could be forced to the negotiation table This book details the only successful mission, the assassination of the Mayor of Aachen, Franz Oppenhoff, by the Allies in Western Germany, detailing the members of Werewolves who participated in it, the Battle of Aachen, as well as the mayor himself While the organization was itself only successful in 1 noteworthy incident, the assassination of the mayor triggered fears among Western allied leaders that there was a German resistance guerrilla movement, as as a result they adjusted shifted their tactics from going to Berlin, to get there before the Communists, and instead focused on conquering Southern Germany The fact that the murderers only served at most a couple years in prison shows that we did not do enough to rid Nazi Germany of former pro Nazi elements in Germany among the Judiciary If it had been me, I would have had them all executed via firing squad An interesting book that highlights a sensational, but fairly

Operation Carnival and its five murderers, until the end when the story widens to discuss the efforts of various high level nazi officials to disappear into the population and avoid justice It is structured in a way to make the relatively thin material stretch and to inject some drama into the known outcome of the mission The structure is effective, the alternating storylines late in the book do make itinteresting, but I felt like it cheapened the scholarly aspect of the book Overall I recommend it for history lovers, but it will have limited appeal with others because of its reliance on the background knowledge of the reader to make sense of the details Skillfully told tale of how the sentiment on the Nazi side that led to the World War II of unquestioning obedience to orders and a visceral hatred against anyone stepping out of the line still persisted well into the last days of the conflict A bit dry, especially in consideration of the fascinating topic Still, it is an interesting read for those interested in the post war years and how they shaped the modern era.
