Hardback. A story which begins with the discovery of the battered corpse of a German soldier in an American prisoner of war camp. The Nazi SS in the camp had posed a direct challenge to the US Army for control of the German prisoners. There were lots of them. More than 40,000 were behind barbed wire in Oklahoma alone. And it was in Oklahoma that Johannes Kunze, a mild-mannered man who missed his wife and children, was killed by an SS-directed mob. The US Army acted. An investigation was conducted by a then little-known major named Leon Jaworski. (Years later he was to play a key role in the Watergate investigation.) Before it was over, several men were hanged. Was "justice" done? This book probes into many taboo areas to search for the answers to that question. Illus. 188pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg+ in vg. sl. sunned pcdw showing a little shelfwear.
