Publisher's Summary

Hailed as “a master storyteller” (Booklist), Alex Kershaw routinely climbs best-seller lists with his narrative histories. In the waning months of World War II, SS Colonel Adolf Eichmann sent over half a million Hungarians to their deaths at Auschwitz. But one Jewish ghetto remained, and only one man - a Swedish diplomat named Raoul Wallenberg - could stop Eichmann.

Critic Reviews

"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)

an amazing story

This is a moving, tragic story of Raol Wallenberg's efforts to rescue Jews of Hungary using his diplomat's status and strategy. It exposes the cruelty of the Nazi's the Hungarian Nazi party and the role of Eichman in the deportation. Such cruelty is hard to imagine, Also hard to imagine is the courage of Wallenberg. The tragic end of Wallenberg and the impact on his family, make this book an important addition to the history of WW2

The Envoy

I don't typically read or listen to books of this nature. I was pleasantly surprised that it flowed very well. The book has alot of focus on Budapest and provides the reader with more information on this lightly covered area of the Holocost. It is a an excellent narration by George Guidall
