Based on exclusive and unrestricted access to over 5,000 pages of personal writings and family photos, this definitive biography of Dr. Josef Mengele (1911-1979?) examines the notorious Nazi's entire life. It begins with his formative years, through his nightmarish deeds at Auschwitz, to his existence as an international fugitive and his death from natural causes.

Well researched and wonderfully free of all the customary fantasy and exaggeration... Fascinating. The New York Review Of Books It's a pity that the official search for him did not match the vigor with which Posner and Ware stalk their subject in print. The San Francisco Chronicle The fullest account yet published... Posner and Ware examine the efforts to bring the doctor to trial, separate fact from legend, account for the false trails that enticed Israeli agents and self-appointed Nazi hunters, and explain why he was never caught. ... Mengele is filled with startling touches. The book is an exciting chronicle of escape, evasion, and close calls. Publishers Weekly [A] welcome addition to the study of the Holocaust... Mengele offers us insight into one of the most infamous perpetrators of the holocaust. -- Michael Berenbaum, director, Sigi Ziering Institute, American Jewish University Students of the Holocaust are fortunate to have this book in print once again. Posner and Ware have aptly titled their book; this is the complete story. The authors bring flair to the telling. It is a riveting tale. The Historian
