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. AUTHOR: Charles Whiting wrote his first novel in 1953, aged just twenty-six. He went on to be the world?s most prolific author of military books; he has sold in excess of three million in the UK alone, and his collective works number around 200. Charles also lived abroad for thirty years working in German chemical factories, US fashion companies, newspapers, magazines, universities ? as an associate professor and lecturer ? and a long spell in the US army. He died in 2007. SELLING POINTS: ? Written by a prolific military history author who met Skorzeny several times ? Detailed research into leading figures of the Nazi regime ? Unique examination of this daring and colourful character ? The tale of a loyal Nazi who stood by the regime even when its collapse was imminent *
