Count Bernadotte, who was in Germany during the spring of 1945 on behalf of the Swedish Red Cross, involuntarily became involved in Himmler's last-minute attempt to negotiate a surrender to Britain and the United States but not Russia. His brief book relates this story and casts a lurid light on the last days of the Nazi régime.
