A trusted member of Hitler's inner circle, Artur Axmann—the head of the Hitler Youth—was in the bunker when the führer committed suicide. Evading capture, and with access to remnants of the regime's wealth, Axmann had enough followers to reestablish the Nazi party in the very heart of Allied-occupied Germany—and position himself to become dictator of the Fourth Reich. Illustrated with 16 pages of black and white photographs, this history details how U.S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps Officer Jack Hunter and his team uncovered the extent of Axmann's conspiracy and set out to stop it.
"How many novelists have imagined some diabolical villain who seeks the resurrection of the Nazis? None do justice to the heart-thumping true story of Axmann and his aim to do just that…. [Scott Andrew] Selby recounts this history with zeal and narrative verve."—Neal Bascomb
