December 1944. Soviet and German troops fight from house to house in the shattered, corpse-strewn suburbs of Budapest. Crazed Hungarian fascists join with die-hard Nazis to slaughter Jews day and night, turning the Danube blood-red. In less than six months, thirty-eight-year-old SS Colonel Adolf Eichmann has sent over half a million Hungarians to the gas chambers in Auschwitz. Now all that prevents him from liquidating Europes last Jewish ghetto is an unarmed Swedish diplomatic envoy named Raoul Wallenberg. The Envoys Briefcase is the stirring tale of how one man made the greatest difference in the face of untold evil. The legendary Oscar Schindler saved hundreds, but Raoul Wallenberg did what no other individual or nation managed to do: He saved more than 100,000 Jewish men, women, and children from extermination. Written with Alex Kershaws customary narrative verve, The Envoys Briefcase is a fast-paced, nonfiction thriller that brings to life one of the darkest and yet most inspiring chapters of twentieth century history. It is an epic for the ages.

Descrizione libro DaCapo, Cambridge, MA, 2010. Quarter Cloth. Condizione libro: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. First Edition, First Printing. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall. Cambridge, MA, DaCapo, 2010. First edition, first printing. 8vo. Dark blue quarter cloth over brown boards, with gilt lettering embossed on spine, illustrated with black and white photos, 294 pp. In July 1944, 32-year-old Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg arrived in Budapest intending to rescue the last major Jewish population in Europe from extermination at the hands of Adolf Eichmann and the Nazis. Over the next six months he repeatedly risked his life to save thousands of Jews, issuing diplomatic passes and establishing numerous safe houses throughout the city in defiance of Eichmann and Hungarian fascists. When the Red Army took Budapest, Wallenberg disappeared into a Soviet gulag. Here the author of The Bedford Boys and The Longest Winter traces the fate of both Eichmann, who was finally apprehended in 1960, and Wallenberg, whose parents spent decades searching for their son. "A tense, fast-moving narrative that shows Wallenberg as a match for Eichmann in intelligence and determination as he utilized fake documents, safe houses, and a variety of other methods to save thousands of Jewish lives. This is an inspiring story that illustrates how one dedicated human can make an impact, even against a monstrous tyranny."-Booklist. New in a new dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover.
